I was thinking about gifts as I had so many birthdays to buy for, but this time it was about the gifts that I myself have been given and what a lucky girl I have been.
It got me wondering about the best gift that I have ever received and I have had some lovely ones, but the one that beats them all (even the diamonds!) was my Mothers Day gift in 2009. My gorgeous (then 5 year old) Sophie presented me with a decorated shoebox and when I looked inside I was shocked to find that it was absolutely crammed with letters, pictures and crafted items, which she had made especially for me and in secret so she could surprise me.
All had kisses and messages of love and I absolutely sobbed my way through each and every one of them. She looked so proud that she had managed to surprise me and also made me soooo happy – bless her. It is now safely stored at the top of my wardrobe and I take it down and look through it when I am having ‘one of those days’.
So, what is the best gift you have ever been given, I would love to know?
