Kyra's Jewelry Story

StoriesPaolo Salamone

This week's fantastic story comes to us from Kyra of Orange County, CA! Her story tells us that we can all take the time to show each other love and there is no better way to do so than by a small gift, which can mean the world...

"When I was in the second grade, our teacher told us that for Mother's Day we had to write about our moms. We would possibly be entered in a contest where we'd win a diamond for that special woman in our life we call Mom. I didn't have a question in the world what I was going to write about: my strong loving caring mother. We are a family of four girls and I was the youngest. We were always fighting for love since we weren't really told the words "I love you"; just bought materialistic things. As I began to sit and think, I told myself maybe mom doesn't know what love is. We had a dad who worked seven days a week which I'm sure was hard for mom. Everyday she made sure we were dressed, fed, and on time to school. She did everything for everyone but herself. I could tell she loved me but I wanted to hear those words. So I entered the contest. I wrote about how my mom was careless and a beautiful person. A few weeks later my teacher told me I won!! I was ecstatic!! I still remember that day. My mom picked me up from school and I read her my story about her and gave her the diamond and with tears in her eyes she told me that was the sweetest thing she has ever heard and she loved me to the moon and back. Still, to this day, I never let a moment go by where I don't tell my mom or anyone I love them. Some people may not be able to say it at first but once you do it's the best feeling in the world. Love, sweet love."
