Mother's Birthday

My mother will be celebrating her birthday next month and my siblings and I have been wondering what we should get her. My mother is not materialistic and the kind of gift she likes best is cash.

However, after more than sixty years, I still feel like I have never been a good enough daughter. My siblings feel the same. I guess this is a burden that a lot of children carry. We can never repay the "debt" to our parents.

My brother and sister have proposed to buy her Barbados jewelry. I am all for it and I heard that their diamonds are on offer so it is a good time to buy. I just hope that my mother will see our sincerity and not chastise us for being too extravagant!
