What should you get your graduate? When my oldest daughter was graduating high school I found the most heart warming gift to give her was an Origami Owl Graduation Gift!! Continue reading to hear this sweet, heart warming story.
My husband and I had a great desire to find the perfect gift for our Cindy Rose. It is a big deal when your oldest child is going to graduate from high school. It is so emotional and trust me I had many tearful moments thinking about how my baby girl was going to be heading out into the world. I was flooded with the memories of her birth, her first steps, her first day of kindergarten, when she learned to ride a bike, when she… well, when she needed me for everything.
Our funds were extremely limited as we were serving our local Rescue Mission and receiving a ministry salary. I just wanted to give her something special, something she would cherish. I was praying for an answer, when I received a message from my friend Jenny. There were pictures of these amazing lockets. I had never seen anything like them before. Honestly, I thought she invented them. I kept looking at them and coming back to them. We discussed it and decided to start saving up for it. Jenny explained how we could choose charms that would be meaningful to our daughter. Origami Owl was brand new and our Independent Designer was the 810th person to sign up to sell these beautiful Living Lockets. We saved and saved and chose the perfect combination for Cindy Rose.
Cindy Rose’s Graduation Living Locket contained:
- an artist palette (she paints),
- music notes (she sings),
- drama masks (she loves to act)
- love to read (she loves to read)
- initial “C” for Cindy Rose,
- a rose for her middle name.
We presented it to her graduation morning and all 6 of us were crying!!
In closing, I am thankful that Jenny reached out to me with her new Direct Sales business, Origami Owl. This is a great reminder to us all to reach out to the people we know and share our products. You just never know who is looking for exactly what you are selling.
