3's the Charm

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!!
