A Well Deserved Thank You

Dear Mom,

Thank you so much for watching my brood for an entire 8+ days. Thank you for loving on them as I would, cooking and cleaning as you went. Thank you for letting them crawl in bed with you when they missed us a bit too much, for spoiling them with movies and treats and the be-all-and-end-all, McDonalds. Thank you for being aware of how much this trip meant to Brad and I, for the health and well-being of our relationship and doing your part to make it happen. But most of all, thank you for loving our kids as much as we do and making them feel incredible love and safety while we were away. It means more to me than you know.

I love you,

Beautiful! I can see some of the wonderful mom qualities I have admired in you coming straight from your loving mom!

You are welcome. And you made me cry, but then what doesn't? I love your kids and Devin; they are my raison d'etre.

That is too sweet Karen. You're mom sounds like an awesome grandmother to your children. What a relief to know they were in such good hands!
