I had such a neat childhood - 10 children. Gifts only came on your birthday and at Christmas. The one that sticks out to me in particular is a blue star sapphire ring set in white gold that my mom and dad got me at my request. I was 15 and I still have the ring 36 years later and it is still beautiful. It represented to me that I was growing up and becoming responsible enough to have something nice. It was pretty much all I got that year and I still love it especially since my mom has passed.
