My mom used to work in Saudi Arabia before she moved to the US with my grandmother and her other siblings. When she was still in Saudi Arabia, she would buy us necklaces and earrings even when there is no occasion at all. I remember her giving me an earring similar to Macy's 14k white gold diamond stud earrings as a gift for being in the honors list of our class when I was in grade 4. I got excited and all to wear my gift not knowing how expensive it was. I played all day and when it is time to go to sleep, I noticed that one lock is missing. My mom scolded me about it. I wonder what punishment she would give me if one of the studs was missing.
