I wanted to share the sweet sentiments in the Mothers' Day card Eddie gave me. It starts out, "dear mom," in his neatest third-grade writing. Then comes the xeroxed verse:
When flowers bloom
And skies are clear
And baby robins softly sing,
I think of you
Both night and day
And thank you, Mom
On the next page, Eddie carefully recorded his dearest sentiments for the mother he loves:
When skies are blue
and flowers are new,
When the world is nice,
you never think about the people dying to protect you.
Without them there would never be a nice day.
On the last page, in giant letters to fill the entire page, he scrawls, "you are the Best!!"
I love being a Mom and watching these boys grow. This one has such a tender heart, and it's a joy to love him.
