Biggest Wanter Ever Born

I want, I ache, I aspire, I covet, I crave, I desiderate, I fancy, I hanker, I hunger, I incline toward, I itch for, I lech over, I long, I lust, I pine, I thirst, I wish, I yearn, I yen.

I like THINGS.

My dad told me many times I was born with an enlarged want gland. For awhile in my youth, I thought there really was a want gland, sorta like a sweat gland, but not as stinky. I grew to learn he was pulling my leg...but it still didn't make me want things any less.

That being said, this Mother's Day when hubby asked me what I wanted I had no answer for him. I have everything I want. (Well, besides the 87 million dollars...but I think even that's a bit much for me to ask for this year anyway.)So I told him I didn't really want anything.

Now hubby isn't a good shopper. He hates it. I am the shopper. So casting him adrift in a sea of merchandise with the task of getting me a mother's day present was kinda cruel...cause while I like things...I also don't like just anything.

But hubby did a great job this year. He met the challenge and conquered it. And I love my gifts.

My Gifts

Here are the flowers he got me. White lilies (my favourite) with purple and pink flowers. (Purple is my favourite colour.)


These twin pendants celebrate one of the most cherished bonds of all—that of a mother and daughter. The top pendant is mother-of-pearl and hand-carved with the Chinese characters for mother and daughter. Underneath, the English translation is etched in sterling silver.
