If you intend on doing something but you never actually do it...




Several times I have meant to do this and I always let it slip my mind. Last time it was on Ben's birthday, this time was tonight...

On Ben's birthday last year I meant to give Cindy (Ben's Mom) a thank you card. I wanted to tell her Thank You for blessing me with Ben. Thank you for giving birth to him and thank you for raising him to be the man he is. I have a husband that thinks the world of me regardless of my short comings and is the best hugger in the world. He is the most loyal, trust worthy, loving person I have ever met and I know he got that from Cindy and Mark. I know his relationship with you Cindy, has shaped Ben and I's relationship and for that I cannot thank you enough. I hope Kobe grows up to love me the way Ben loves you.

Second of all I am so thankful for the relationship you have with Kobe. You are definately special to him in so many ways. I know that part of him really does want to live at Grandma's house and visit Ben and I on the weekends. He notices so many things about you, including how you "don't yell at him when he spills something". :)

Third of all, thank you for teaching me by example how to love my family fiercely and to put them first. To give them what they need and in turn I will get what I need. You challenge me even in your compliments to live up to the nice things you say about me. I wish all of us had someone like that in our lives. I hope to be that someone for other people because of what it has done for me.

I am sorry it took me SO LONG to get to it, what a mistake on my part, to be so thankful for something and to barely ever let them know!

Thanks for the tea party you put on tonight, it was fabulous!
