When my daughter was in kindergarten, I came home from work, and she ran out to the car to meet me. It was the Friday before Mother's day. She had something behind her back, and wanted me to close my eye's so she could surprise me. She handed me a gift and asked me to open it. It was keepsake hand-print, I still have it 12 years later.

For years my parents kept an orange I had filled with cloves, that eventually dried but never spoiled and still looked beautiful. It had a ribbon on it to hang on the Christmas tree.

I have some of those! It comes with a little poem about how they make a mess, hold you hand for guidance, and they are precious! The first I...heck, everytime I received one, I cried reading and looking at their little hand print! And I have kept every single one of them...all seven!

Although my son is 21, I still have all the Christmas things he made for me. I had the other things but they got ruined when they were in storage. But the best thing he gave me was a card and in it said that he didn't need any presents because he had me. I think he was about five when he wrote it. I thought it was the sweetest thing. Every year I remind him of that too.lol.

That reminds me, my son once made me a paint hand print and there was some kind of poem that went with it about how this would remind me of how his finger and handprints were dirty and all over the walls at that time, but in years to come when they were washed off I would still be able to remember how little he once was. Does anyone remember this poem?

I have read it, and have it here somewhere. Actually it was made for my husband, and I don't know where he has it. I loved the poem.
