Dog gone it, People like me!

Yesterday, the kids and I were just getting back from a walk and Ben got the mail. He was so surprised at how much mail was in there. I didn't even look up because I was thinking all of it was junk mail or advertisements or mail for William Wallace. . .

I finally looked up and Ben had a giant stack of letters! Any college kid or missionaries dream come true! Like a little kid, I ran up to Ben and tackled him down on the ground and made him wince like a girl until he released them all to me! Okay, that's not how it happened, but that's what I felt like doing.

I acted like any adult would and counted and sorted and took pictures of my cards! I also vowed I would not open them until my birthday.

Yay! Something to open on the day that's really not my birthday and who knows if I am really 33, I think I am only 25 which means I got married when I was 17 which wouldn't make me legal, and I would have been 14 when CJ was born. . . okay, so maybe I'm like 26.

Today, my own kids brought me cards they had made, flowers they had picked for me. Inside CJ's card were these sayings. . .

I hope you never die. Me too!
Thanks for being my Mom. Anytime!
I hope no one else wants me. They better not! You're mine!
Thanks for helping me with homework. Really? didn't I make you cry last night?
You are the best Mom I have ever had. This really means ALOT to me!
I love you. Right back at you.
I hope you have a very nice day, Oh, I will, thanks to you!

Love CJ

I've opened the cards and loved all of the cards! I got this one from a Kameron??? Good thing he put "(future brother in law)" by his name. Now I know who he is.

Just kidding.

The kid cards were amazing and made me flashback to my teaching years when my students made me homemade cards. Loved that!

I feel like I'm good enough, I'm smart enough and dog gone it, people like me!

Thank you, thank you, thank you SO much everyone! I feel loved.

Yea! I'm glad you got them...I was at Mom and Dad's on Monday and our FHE activity was making those cards. You should have seen Dad go through several ideas before landing on the Michigan hand which he thought was hilarious. I hope you had a great birthday!

Your dad's card was the funniest! I loved it. In fact, I did a double take on his card. I thought, did someone's card just flip me off? Then I realized the hand was Michigan!
