Very Lucky Mom

I will tell anyone who will listen that I am the Mother of the 3 most amazing, loving sons in the world. I know they get tired of hearing how proud I am of them and how very blessed I feel to have them. This morning is one example of what makes me so very lucky. I was going about my daily morning routine when the doorbell rang. I heard the telltale "thump" of the UPS man drop-and-dash, which always gets me excited. What I saw was a box from ProFlowers and I assumed my Hubby was doing a little early Valentines-ing. When I opened the box I was immediately overcome with tears and gratitude. They were beautiful tulips from my youngest son (the baby) Robert. My Robbie is a Junior at NAU and has just been away from home for a little over a year, but I miss him every day. Being that he is the youngest, he and I had quite a period of time with just he and I at home and became very good friends. I have always known how blessed I was to have him feel that way towards me when most kids that age are at odds with their parents. He has grown into such a sweet and thoughtful young man and I am so proud. He works and goes to school, so every cent is very necessary, which just shows how sweet he is to send me flowers. The card was so beautiful and I will share this little bit "I love you and miss you always"...Oh, my heart! My cup truly runneth over. I must also share with you that my sweet Kitty, Vanessa, always thinks flowers are delivered expressely for her sniffing pleasure. So I thought it quite fitting that she jumped in the frame as I snapped the photos. Happy Day Before Valentine's Day!
