GIFTS FROM THE HEART

This is what I "got" for Mother's Day from Rojo - the use of Elmo, Sam and Lucky, for 90 minutes. Elmo was wrapped in newspaper, Sam and Lucky in kitchen towels. He wrapped them up the night before, which means he chose my happiness over his, he couldn't sleep with this tremendous trio.

In the morning he was beside himself waiting for his sister to wake up so they could surprise me. He presented me with the three bundles and jumped up and down the whole time (3 seconds) that it took me to open them.

"Look! It's Elmokins! I am giving you my brother! Little Elmokins! Do you love him? Do you love Elmokins? Do you love my little brother???"

"Yes! I LOVE him! Thank you so much!

"You get to have him until 9:00 AM. Are you excited to have him until 9:00 AM?"

"Yes! Thank you!"

"And Sam! I am giving you Sam! Do you love Sam? Do you love my brother, Sam?"

"I love Sam, too."

"You get to have Sam until 9:00, too. And Lucky! You get to have Luckykins until 9:00, too! Are you excited to have my brother, Luckykins, until 9:00???"

"Yes! I am THRILLED!"

Picking up all three of his favorite brothers, giving them each a full mouth kiss, hug and a twirl, he says, "Happy Mother's Day, Mom!"

It was.

Your Dairy Queen story made it into marriage counseling last week...my therapist was very impressed and talked about honoring each other.

You are a very, very rich woman.
