OMG.....I am in tears!!!

  1. My 19-yr-old son is not one to think about cards, gifts, etc. Not just with me, with anybody. If he's not reminded he will rarely remember to even say "Happy Birthday" or any other holiday greeting, except for Christmas. He has been living with us for a year, ever since his mother and stepdud kicked him out after high school graduation. He just came home from school and gave me his first ever birthday gift to me and a card with a Mama poem on it, about how mamas love and teach and everything else that some would consider sappy.

    It is the absolute best birthday card I have ever received in all my years.

    Yep! Mom's are special. And. . . it seems like your son is realizing this as well. It's nice to see tears of happiness coming from a mother's eyes.

    Thanks for sharing your story. . .

    his actions speaks volumes about his obvious love and devotion towards you.
    volumes.
    he's blessed to have you and maybe he's finally realizing everything he wants in a mom.
    blessings to you both.
