Mother & Son


The upside of cleaning closets is to find sweet little notes like this treasure.

Our local newspaper compiled thoughts from third-graders about their moms for a special Mother’s Day edition. This was my son’s response.

“My mom is special because she helps me with my math.

She also buys me lots of shirts.

And does not spoil me.”

Today is Blake’s birthday. Happy Birthday to my first born!

I wish I could still help you with your math but your skills have surpassed mine.

I  can still buy you shirts.  Not spoiling you was and is a joy.

Now Blake has a son Aiden who will be six on January 20.

Another little boy to cherish, help with his math, buy shirts and definitely not spoil!

The circle of love.

    1. Thank you for your kind words. I like thinking that our love lives on and on through our children and their offspring. Family matters and so do friends, of course. Happy Monday to you from Portland!

    1. Hi Judy, I do feel blessed that these two guys are part of my world. It is great seeing them interact. Aiden reminds me of Blake (his Dad) when he was younger. Have a great Wednesday, Lori


    1. Good morning! I keep a lot of little notes and cards from my family & friends. They are nice reminders of love & caring. The older ones are even more precious as some of the people are gone. I agree, a text just isn’t the same. I hope all is well in your world. Happy Wednesday!

  1. What a great note to find. My son in 3rd grade wrote his favorite thing about me was when I do the dishes. When I asked him why it was because he liked the clanking noise and being able to see me from the living room. It’s amazing what children think!

    1. I love finding little rewards when I clean. Once I found an old candy bar. On the spur of the moment, I decided to eat it! I knew it would be fine because of all of the preservatives. It was a bit stale but otherwise tasted fine. Looking back, I can’t believe I did that!
