A Special Valentine and a Big Wish!

God graced me with the most special Valentine ever. 30 years ago on Feb. 14th my son Kevin was born. I never thought a child could bring a mother so much pride and joy. Every Valentine's Day is extra special for me.

Happy Birthday my beautiful, handsome son. I am so proud of the person you have become. You are the sweetest, kindest person that I know. This is not just Mom saying this either because everyone that knows you says the same thing. People that meet you immediately like you. That has always amazed me. And you are pretty darn fun to hang out with too! You have not just been my son but you have also been my "best buddy, of course along with your brother. There are no other people in the world I would much rather hang out with than you and your brother! You two crack me up when you guys are together. Where you get your personality and humor from is beyond me because you know your Mom has such a serious, no-nonsense side to her! I am glad that it did not rub off on you!

Happy Birthday and Happy Valentine's Day!
Love Mom

P.S. I would have posted some pictures but the scanner is down! Actually the message I am getting says it is off-line. Now how in the world does that happen out of the clear blue? Ugghhh! I will do a follow-up post.

  2. Hi Sue.... :-) And, Happy Valentine's Day right back to you.

    What a precious Valentine! We Mom's are just so darn crazy about our kids, aren't we? He sounds like a great fella.....

    I laughed that you'd be watching the same shows. I LOVE Selling New York.... Where the heck do those people get all that money???? The one I just watched said that the Realtor's commission would be 500,000 dollars! WOW! ONE sale! I'ts so much fun to see what those apartments look like. So much different than I my humble little cottage..... But, so beautiful.

    Have a wonderful Valentine's Day with all your fellas!


  3. Hi Sue, and Happy Birthday to your son!! Sorry your scanner is down. Thanks for visiting my blog! When I saw you, I just cracked up!! I did a post about THE GOOD SCISSORS!! And I showed a picture of all the scissors in our house, I rounded them up and there were plenty. This is because growing up, my mom anways was running around saying "Where are the good scissors? I can never keep anything nice around here!" You have a very nice blog!
