P.S. POOF!! It's back......


Here's the one I wiped out in the post just before this one..... just thought I would share it after all......yikes, I only have one card to blab thru, am I capable of keeping it SHORT and SWEET? Here's a happy thing that happened to me this week. I got a beautiful Mother's Day card from my son Mike. I mean one of those ones that makes you cry. (last year Jenna made me a beautiful gramma album that also made me cry) In Mike's card he said all the things a mama wants to hear from her grown son. Some of my days are pretty lonely. (pray for keith he has a 2nd job interview monday for a close to home job) Getting that card was awesome. A few days later I got a package in the mail. Who is sending me a pkg? Mike and Jenna and Layla. The best part? Jenna told me Mike shopped on line HIMSELF and picked out this sweater for me......it's awesome - I have never owned a designer sweater that I can think of, (unless it had SU on it somewhere) but this is a magnificent Ralph Loren sweater..... and my coworker Melanie who knows all about fashion was like, "Whoa, love your sweater!!" (I knew I was cool then.) But it was the part where Jenna said Mike wanted to get you something really nice that really makes it my most favoritist sweater in the whole wide world. All you mothers of obnoxious teenagers out there, my Mike was one once. :) They grow up, they say things that make it MOTHERS DAY in August. :) Thanks Mike, love you man. Okay- all done - I did manage to keep it short and sweet, and how appropriate is that, the card says LOVE YOU. Awwww........
