I spent my Mother's Day driving in a car for 7 hours back from North Carolina. I did get to do this with my Mom and my 3 kids so I guess it was pretty good. The kids were sweet on the way home and that enabled my Mom and I to have some good conversation, something I love to do with my Mom. She is a wonderful mom and a great friend.
Then when we arrived home, M had written me a Mother's Day letter. The teacher had most of the words and she filled in her words (I have put those in bold). This is priceless to me. It said:
My Mom is the most wonderful Mom in the world! Her name is E (she did have my name here and even spelled it correctly). She's pretty as a flower. She is 29 years old.(love her!). She has green eyes and blondish hair. She weighs 90 pounds (again, love this kid!) and is 20 feet tall. Her favorite food is fish. In the good old days when she was little, she used to play. I think Mom is funny when she gets peed on. (this is because of baby J) But I know she's really angry when my sister spanks her. (I think she got this a little mixed up) I wouldn't trade my Mom for anything. I love my Mom because she is nice. Happy Mother's Day Mom! Love, M
Well, I thought I would play along. So here goes the same thing for my Mom. Happy Mother's Day a day late:
My Mom is the most wonderful Mom in the world! Her name is P. She's pretty as a colorful rainbow bringing cheer to everyone. She is forever 35 to me. Her weight is more than gold, and I don't mean pounds. She is petite...maybe 5 feet 1 inches tall, but stands tall against others. Her favorite food is Italian, although my favorite thing she cooks is beef stroganoff. In the good old days when she was little, she used to roller skate to school and make her parents proud. I think my Mom is funny when she tells a story or laughs with me. But I know she's really angry when someone hurts someone she loves. I wouldn't trade my Mom for the world. I love my Mom because she is devoted, kind, loyal, loving, tender, proud, smart, lovely, respectful, humble and a good friend. Happy Mother's Day Mom! Love, E
The song playing is so true to me and I love it. Take time to listen if you can. "My Daughters Eyes." I couldn't have said it better myself. It's perfect. I'm so lucky to be a mom.
