It may not be made of gold, platinum or silver. It may not be studded with diamonds or pearls. But this bracelet is one of the most precious pieces of jewelry I have. Gabby made this for herself last New Year's Day. But she removed it and locked the clasp around my wrist tonight, saying it was a belated Christmas gift. I reminded her that she had given me a gift already but she said a card, which she also made herself, was not a gift. I said it was one of my most treasured gifts and that she didn't have to worry about giving me presents. I already have the best gifts I could ever ask for - Ate Alex and herself. She said nothing as she covered her face with her hair, hoping I wouldn't see the tears flowing freely down her cheeks.
