With Love

Happy Birthday to me

My lovely daughter sent this card to me for the auspicious occassion of my birthday. I still tear up reading it...

"I remember being a little girl putting on your high heel shoes and dancing around the kitchen to Tainted Love. Do you remember too? So, this card is the perfect card for you! I wanted to be just like you so badly as a little girl, and today, all grown up, I still admire you and wish everyday I could fill those shoes! I only hope that I can be as good a mother as you have been to me. I love you so very much, Mom and I hope you had the most Happy Birthday"

I think every mother hopes for a message like that from her daughter.  I'd still be crying.

Nothing touches your heart like a loving compliment from your child. Often my son buys funny cards that play off the compliment but one Mother's Day he got me a plaque that I still tear up reading. That was ten years ago. Motherhood's a tough job but the rewards like this make it worthwhile. Nelle

Happy birthday and happy St. Patrick's Day to my favorite Irish colleen. I'll be havin' a pint for you, since you are abstaining for Lent and all. I'm going to Bad Abbot's, where they draw the finest pint around. But Mary, darlin'...Soft Cell?

Great card...isn't it nice when your kids see you as something other than an ATM? Glad you're back.
