Medal of Honor from my son, Aaron

This week in the mail I received a package. I was sort of worried when I first seen it. I was looking up some diet pills a week ago but I didn't remember putting in my information to buy them. When I saw this package, I thought I was going to have to go through the trouble of returning them, calling the company and fighting the bill... I'm sure you all understand what I mean. To my surprise, I received a "Medal of Honor" necklace from my son, Aaron. Aaron is 20 years old and has been in the Navy for 2 1/2 years. My family and I just got to go visit him in Va over Spring break, a few weeks ago.

This is what was written on a sheet of paper inside the package.

The Awards Ceremony

You have spent half our lifetime caring for, protecting, teaching, and loving me. The following is a presentation of all the awards ou have earned for doing such a wonderful job raising me.

The award is given to those who courageously press forward and keep going even though wounded and hurt, to meet the objective.

the first year is where you really had your job cut out. Remember all those sleepless, thankless nights worrying about little illnesses, changing diapers, feeding and bathing me? I now thank you for them and award you and Honorary Registered Nusing Degree for your dedication and skill.

The best teachers would have a hard time accomplishing all you did in a few short years. You taught me right from wrong, good from bad, and most important-how to love. I hereby award you and Honorary Masters Degree in Teaching and add my sincere appreciation for a job well done.

The formative years until I left home were rough. Yet, you taught me to care for peple and to cope with the task of life and living. I hereby award you and Honorary Degree in Psychology and I add to the tears of joy I feel while writing this, a tender kiss of gratitude for your love.

The last few years of wondering wht I have been up to and if I will get where I am going have demonstrated your ability to always be there when needed. Even when you were not in the best of spirits, you always had enough inner stregth to lift me up and keep me going. For this you have already received your award; it is a touch of kindness, protection, and peace of mind given to those worthy of them from the Ruler of Eternity.

The next award is the enclosed Diamond Necklace. Actually it is not menat to be and award, but a representaion of my appreciation of all the work, effort, and love you have put into making me someone who is happy and proud to be your child. When you feel down, wear it; let it remind you that in this cold world there is the warmth of my love always with you. It will last forever. I love you for having the courage to be yourself and for being the Best mom in the World.

I am such a blessed Mom. I have the most wonderful children in the world.

Wow, Lori! A wonderful tribute from Aaron! And a PhD as well!

I am reminded of two sayings:
1. "train up a child in the way ... ;" and
2. "teach your children well, their father's Hell ..."
