I love birthday cards and all other gift cards too, and I have kept quite a few for as long as I can remember. My most cherished card is this one above, which my Mum gave to me for my tenth birthday. I have kept this card for 38 years now, along with another beautiful card which Mum gave me when I was twelve. See below please.
My adoptive mother passed away just before the Millenium, 2000, but I will always remember her enduring kindness and her love of life, and what she taught me – which is to be grateful for my blessings and to help others, and to treat others as I would have them treat me.
