I want to tell you about a girlfriend's gift to me. When I lived in Ukraine, I had girlfriend. Her name is Natalya. She is a beautiful short woman, 52 years old. with blue eyes and long blond hair. Natalya is kind and sympathetic. She loves children and animals. We have been friends for over 30 years!!! She is my son’s godmother. Natalya is interested a Fen-Shui. When I was planning to move to another country, she gave me a little gold turtle pendant. Natalya told me that it will bring me good luck because the turtle is a symbol of wealth. It’s a very dear gift to me, as it represents a memory of a special friendship.
