She found her real treasure ....

My mom used to have sets of jewelries back when we were still young. I remember seeing her jewelry box with earrings, necklaces, bracelets, rings and other jewelries given by her mom and those she bought. I really appreciate my mom for keeping those ornaments because it really helped us in times that we needed most financial assistance. My father got sick and spent almost a year in the hospital. We nearly sold all our properties including my mom’s jewelries to pay the huge hospital bills.

That was 38 years ago. Today my mom might not have that many ornaments but she also lives happily doing her work as a school principal at 77 years old! I once brought her to a jewelry showcase and she just merely smiled seeing those sparkling gold and diamond necklaces. I believe she has found her real treasures in us.
