Another Reason I Love My Little Bear

This is what the Bear, age eight, gave me for Mother's Day:

In case you can't read the fine print, it says
Dear Mom,
I am thankfull for you for 3 reasons: 1 because if you weren't alive I wouldn't be alive, 2 because you are nice and 3 because you make food for me.
Can't argue with #1, which is just typical, ineluctable Bear logic. As for #2, it's wonderful that he chooses to see the nice me and not the crabby one. And the quality of #3 fluctuates, too; some days, it's a good thing he likes veggie burgers.

I love the pop-up flowers. And I know he made them purple because he knew I'd like it. The only thing that makes me even happier than his artwork is this, his budding gift of empathy.

What a beautiful card. Your son sounds like a wonderful boy. I hope you had a nice Mother's Day, Sungold!

Thanks, Sugar Mag. Yeah, I had a chance to work for a few hours yesterday afternoon, which sounds so nerdy, but it was good - I'm behind on things - and then I played Cat-opoly with the Bear and had a nice snuggle time with the Tiger.

I hope your kids and/or husband did something nice for you!
