Anna Grace made me a card for Mother's Day. In it she wrote a rather lengthy note. I wanted to share it with you.

Dear Mom,
I love you. I know that you do almost everything for me so I decided to make you this. I love when you rub my back and say my prayers at night. I know that you love me and will always love me. I wish that someday I will make it into college so that you won't have to pay for me and my things. I think it's funny when you sing a song on American Idol that you know. I love how you make me laugh. I hope that you stay alive until I die. Hopefully we will never get separated. I like making puzzles with you. You are the greatest. Oh yeah, HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY! I'm glad that we got to move here, but I really want to go back.
Your's Truly,

Yeah...I cried. That kid can get to me for sure.

Oh my gosh! That sweetness made ME tear up so I can imagine what it did to you! A.G. is something else.

Joe @ IrrationalDad said...

Hahahaha.... That's great! At least she didn't sign it "F.A.G." again... or did she?

Happy (belated) Mother's Day

That is one of the most beautiful things I have ever written and I won't lie I am wiping tears off my cheeks. I hope you keep that card forever.

Clearly you are a wonderful mom.
