I just received a Happy Mother’s Day email from Iraq.

I thought it would take a lot to make me smile today after a rough couple of days and little sleep, plus missing my Mom. But it actually happened with one card. A good friend of mine, who is currently in a very serious battle with cancer (she has chemo tomorrow), found a card and knew she had to give it to me. The front said "Happy Mothering Sunday" and the printing inside just said "with lots of love". But she added "You mother so many and have such wonderful input into the lives of many young people". And it was signed by her, her daughter and future daughter in law (I am catering the wedding!).

Tears of joy and a huge smile were the best "Mothering Day" present I could ever have.

Oh, and then my dear sick daughter (for those who are confused, she is my daughter by decision...hers!) calls up and says that as soon as she is better she is giving me a full day of pampering - hair, makeup, the whole bit AND is going to cook me dinner! Good for some more smiles.

Spent the afternoon attending a matinee performance of Annie at local community theater. My youngest brother performed two parts. Buck and I had a fabulous time. The performance was stellar. The little girl who played Annie was fabulous.

Came home to an answering machine full of messages from all my children. Just a little while I opened cards and a Mother's Day gift from Buck...a nice big bottle of shiraz. Yum.

I've been smiling all day.

My oldest son made a card / book for me in school. He's been wanting to give it to me for 4 days but we convinced him to wait until Mother's Day.

It's 8 short pages, but so sweet!
Here's what it says.

Titled "MY Mom" by Jacob

Dedicated to my Mom she is always happy
This is my mom she looks just like a Queen
Do you know how old she is she just turned 34 years old
She works hard all day, she is a bagel baker on weekends
My mom outbakes anyone else I know
(this is my favorite part)... I would not trade my mom for anything not even for a clock
If I could buy my mom anything for Mother's Day it would be flowers or tomatoes cuz she loves to grow them


Isn't that just the sweetest??
Illustrated and everything. I think I'm gonna cry. :)
