Mother's Day gifts

Today the gifts I've received have not, by in large, been tangible. I had time with family (including my brother's children, who stayed with us last night; this meant a preschooler to chase, and a baby to spoil!), which is the best gift of all. Then a solid, quiet nap; lovely conversations with my father, and my mother-in-law; the opportunity to do some cooking; and a share in some relaxed worship.

Then this evening before bedtime, our son brought me a homemade card, a foam flower with his picture in it, and a poem, typed on flowered paper. They've been working on poems at school; this became part of my Mother's Day present from him. He gave me permission to post it.
Caring, thoughtful, loving and kind,
Mother of Carolyn and Kyle,
Lover of Burger King, iChat and reading,
Who feels happiness when her kids are around
excitement when she's iChatting,
and fun when she goes to Seabury,
Who needs more quiet time
time to herself
and to stay home more often,
Who gives time to be with us,
love to our family,
and enjoyment to other people,

Who fears hurricanes and tornadoes
Who would like to see the end of wars
and our rooms clean
And who lives in a brick house.

Happy Mother's Day, y'all.

That is like a masterpiece poem! How sweet -
this line is a classic:
"Who would like to see the end of wars
and our rooms clean
And who lives in a brick house."

He's got talent....and a great mom.
