What's In My Pocket?

I was in my office this afternoon when, I noticed something's in my pocket... I took it and know what I got? A necklace with a heart pendant. I remembered, my daughter Honeytweet gave it to me earlier. I was even wondering why she gave me this. Suddenly I remembered, oh! in less than a week is gonna be a Valentine's Day... (Sometimes I tend to forget some special occasions as this). I could see her excitement as she herself put it on my neck and greeted me advance Happy Valentine's Day. I thanked her and told her that I could use it everyday because after the Valentine's Day, I will put my ID card in it. I asked her why she spent her 'baon' to buy the necklace. She said, "It's okay ma, it's only P2.00. When she went out for school, I took it off and put it in my pocket.

When I saw it this afternoon, I was so touched and was bothered by my conscience because she didn't know I took it off. But I'm wearing it now. I want my daughter to know how much I appreciate her gift to me no matter how simple or how inexpensive it may be. After all, it's the thought that counts!
