Sweet letter's from my Boy's

These are the wonderful items I received for Mother's Day.

These are the wonderful items I received for Mother's Day.

I was very busy this past weekend and was very nervous as to how I was going to keep my house clean, in order to have my Mother-in-law over for a picnic on Sunday for Mother's day. My husband had my kids, mow the lawn, (He trimmed), I got home at 9:30 p.m. from my very busy day, my house was spotless, plus my living room floor had been waxed. I feel so much loved by my family. My kids got me some very nice things for Mother's Day. My older son and daughter-in-law got me some items from Victoria Secret's that I don't think I will show. My silly daughter-in-law, she is a funny one. That's o.k. I got her a gift card to the same store. Hee, Hee.

I had to take my truck into the shop at 5:00 a.m. this morning. I got the boy's all up and ready to take them to school. I cleaned my house, took out the garbage and the water bottles, I've done two loads of laundry. I just got done running on the treadmill and doing my Fat-burning Dance Mix with Denise Austin. I only have a minute to post because I need to take a shower and leave for work.

I don't have a lot of time today but I wanted to post my special letters that I receive for Mother's Day from my boy's.

The first one is from one of my twins, Jimmy:

I know that my husband had the boy's sit down and write me special notes but that even made it even more special to me.

BTW-Kristy, I think we are married to the same man. Hee, Hee
Kristy's was tagged my e-mom for "Seven Things About Myself" She added a number 8.

(I get to have a #8....my blog.) I LOVE my handsomesexyfunnycrazyhardworkin'hunk'o'man. (Kristy, How can we both have the hunkiest husband in the world? : )

Let's get back to Jimmy's letter:
Jimmy and John are 12.

Dear Mom,

I love you with all of my heart. You are the best mom a kid could every ask for! You are the sunshine that brightens my day. Here is a little riddle, song thing, I wrote for you.

Roses are red, Violets are blue, I love you so much and you know that it must be true. In big letters, to close this letter he wrote. I LOVE YOU MOM!!!!!!!!
At the bottom of the letter is a picture of the sun that he made with a happy face on it with words coming out of its mouth saying. "You so totally rock MOM".

John's letter:

Dear Mom,
I was going to buy a card with bright hearts and flowers but I thought, to you, a special card from me would be better instead.

A great day today will be for you and Mother's to come, but for now, it is, a card from me to you with much great love.

So, until next special day of yours, a loving heart of mine, with a great big hug, will give you and me a great day divine.

From your loving son,


Boaz gave me a CD with his voice telling me how much I meant to him. It had 19 great songs on it. I have listened to it many times but I would have to sit down with paper and pencil to write it out. He didn't want me to know what he was doing at school for me so he threw that paper away.

Jimmy and Bo came up with a dance for one of the songs. I wish you all could have seen them. It was so very cute.
Have a very relaxing, blessed day.

What a sweet post! A belated Happy Mom's Day to you. Thanks for visiting my blog last week!

Dianne said...

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Your mothers day sounds like it was wonderful. Mine was too although I wasn't able to spend it with my children as they are all grown and scattered.

Kristy said...

You made me laugh out loud!
See, there are many wonderful men out there, huh? You and I just got blessed with two of the greatest!!
tee hee!
Loved the letters.
Blessings to you Friend ~

One more thing- this past weekend in church, one of our Missionaries from Turkey spoke about the recent killings (your previous posts). They knew Tilman personally - just wanted to say that God is still doing amazing things from this tragedy. At Tilmans service there were 500+ people who broke out in applause as they carried his casket through the crowd. It was televised in Turkey, the gospel was preached!
Tilmans wife made the commment " I love my husband, but I love my Jesus more." She has openly said that she forgives the attackers......
Leaves one speechless.

Linda said...

What a special Mothers' Day you had. I know you will treasure those letters forever. It is so nice to have that special love expressed in words.
Lori - I get exhausted just reading about your days!! Have a good one.

e-Mom said...

I don't know where you get all your energy! Your family is very sweet to you. (Love the Victoria's Secret idea.) Have a blessed day! :~)

"Early Bird" said...

Sounds like a great Mother's Day!
Thanks for sharing the letters!

Pastor E said...

Hi Lori - thanks for your kind comments on my blog. Keep up the great work!

Oh Lori, Keep those letters forever and ever and ever. I have one that my daughter gave me. I framed it and have it hanging over my desk as a reminder on those "bad mom" (or "bad kid") days!

Gardener Greg said...

Those letters mean more than any material thing. I would say Bless you but you already are.


Godwyn Lim said...

Awesome Testimonies of His Great Love from your son:-) God is Good Amen?!

Sorry, I haven't been blogging for a long while due to work & health.

Will do my entry soon, meantime, enjoy our Daddy's Love from Heaven:-)

Lori said...

Henry Leong,

Thank you so much for the Mother's Day wish for me.


My family was very good to me. I am very blessed indeed. I am busy but I wouldn't want it any other way.

I pray your dad is doing well. I enjoy reading his blog. He and Mrs. Jim are very busy also.


Thank you! I sure enjoy your post. You are always giving us some great lesson on the Bible. I love it. Please keep it up.


I was very surprised that my boy's would take the time to write me a letter. They are 12 and really not into that kind of stuff. It really blessed my heart.


Thank you! Yes, you are right I am a very blessed woman.

7:37 AM

I use to visit your blog all the time but some how I lost all my links. I'll be back around to catch up on your blog post.


Your welcome!
Yes indeed, my mother's day was great. I am glad you had a good one as well. Mine are slowly being spread out all over.


Hee, Hee As you can tell I love to goof around. You and e-mom seem like some really fun ladies. I love reading both of your blogs. Yes, I do believe we both got blessed with wonderful husbands.

The Missionaries that got killed in Turkey are still on my mind everyday. I still pray for the families that are left behind. Thank you for sharing all of this with me.

Tilman's wife has left me speechless. I pray I could be like that if something happened to my husband.


I have to say this was the best Mother's day I think I have ever had. Not because of the gifts and the pinic but because each one of my children remembered me on Mother's day.


You sound like the busy lady yourself. I can't wait to meet you in heaven.
You have discipled me on more then on occasion.

Early Bird,

I did have a awesome Mother's day.

Pastor E,

Your welcome! I'll be back. said...


I will keep them forever. Someday when my men grow up to be husband I'll pull them out to show each of their wives and children.

Gardener Greg,

You are right! I'm not nor have I ever been into material things. It is the time that my children gave up for me. To sit boy's down long enough to write these very special letters mean more to me then I can say.

You are right, I am blessed.

Godwyn Lim,

Brother I missed you! I have been praying for you. I am sorry to hear that you have been sick. I love your post! They come straight from your heart.

Gwen said...

Hi Lori.
Your post was beautiful,presents are nice but those letters from'your sons are straight from the heart.
I can see your Mothers Day was special for you.

Deepak Gopi said...

Nice presents.
Happy mothers day once more.

Lori said...

deepak gopi,

Thank you for the Mother's Day wish.

Hi everyone in blog land,

I'll be blogging again soon! I'm a little busy trying to get my sons graduation/going away party in order.

I want to thank everyone for your comments and your visits to my blog. I know a lot of you don't leave a comment but I am very grateful for your visits.

I told myself until I get A.J.'s announcements sent out; my hobby just has to wait. I'm almost done! I have everyone at church invited but I really need to get family and my close friends invitations send out.

Blessings to all of you,


Lori said...


I'm sorry, I missed you. Not on purpose really. I just got done with my house cleaning job and need to rum home to put more clothes on the line before going to work.

I love my letter's from my boy's. I will cherish them forever. You are right, these letter's are from my boy's heart and that mean more to me then I can say.

I don't regret having not one of my 7 children.

Amel's Realm said...

Really touching presents. I couldn't help shedding some tears while reading this post. I miss my Mom. :-))) She's the BEST Mom ever!!!
