We’re pleased to have received this heartwarming story from Jim about the Add-A-Pearl necklaces he has started for his granddaughters.
“Seven years ago, after my wife died, I thought it would be a nice thing to give my brand new granddaughter two pearls each birthday with the idea she’d have a proper necklace when she turned 16 or 17. Little did I know my kids would bless me with FIVE granddaughters. Now I confess, I sometimes get panicky trying to remember to order the pearls in time. But Add-A-Pearl has been very helpful. And by now they almost seem to know me personally…which is rare in today’s world of online buying.
Their website has improved each year, and now I am able to figure out which of my girls has how many pearls. Maybe I should just set up the purchases on an “auto-pay” basis for the next decade! Now if I can just be sure my daughter and daughter-in-law will keep track of them for all 18 years…especially the one with FOUR girls. Very soon I’ll be adding a fifth granddaughter…Elia Michael. Whew!"
