My mother has three children - a boy and two girls. While we have several similarities, we are very different. For Mother's Day this year, we got her a new charm for her bracelet.
It contains each of our birthstones in birth order-left to right. I'll have it attached to her bracelet this week.
Attributes of the sapphire:
§ Truth, sincerity and constancy; and
§ Clairvoyance, insight and interpretation.
Attributes of aquamarine:
§ Faithfulness, courage and friendship; and
§ Awareness, quick response and easing communication problems; and
§ This gemstone is often used as a charm by sailors for protection while at sea.
Attributes of amethyst:
§ Sincerity and a calm disposition: and
§ Stability, peace, balance, courage, inner strength.
Its hopefully a small but meaningful gift to say thanks for all of the things she's done and continues to do for each of us.
Happy Mother's Day!!
