One of the most thoughtful gifts I have ever been given came out of a mistake.  You’re probably wondering why I am putting up pictures of a piece of metal.  Well, let me tell you – this piece of metal is one of my prized possessions!

If you don’t know my boyfriend James, he used to work for his dad at Alpha Magnetics and they would cut magnets and make all kinds of things.  Before James & I started dating, a friend that worked with him told me that James had been distracted at work and made a mistake while working.  Metal flew everywhere and one of the pieces he picked up was this very piece.

He gave this to me nearly a year later and told me that the reason he had messed up that day was because he had been thinking of me.  I think that mistakes like this are the most beautiful kind and should always be treasured.  Every time I see this, not only am I amazed at it’s natural beauty, but I am always overwhelmed with emotion.  Truly a gift that keeps on giving.

Thank you, James.
