For You, Mom

Standard

I’m hoping this will make you smile, as it is a little joke based on something you said last week.  The coloring book is brand new and I colored a page just for you, (and so did my wonderful sister).

Love you a lot, Mom!

You’ll get the real thing, along with a cup of coffee and a cookie (all my treat) when we get together for our usual writing session.  You’re an amazing mom and incredible best friend.  Thank you for being such a powerful and loving presence in my life.

Happy Mother’s Day from your perpetual little girl. Love you!

p.s. I still have my original Care Bear stuffed animal from 1983.  And, of course, that’s the bear I colored!
