You Are Like a Warrior Mommy...

I am telling you - and this isn't parental bias either - little humans like Mebbie don't come along every day.

They just don't... and they are super special.

I got home from my freezing cold run tonight and found this fairly long letter written out on the counter.

I could tell by the look on Laura's face it was something special and good - and she said "Go ahead.. read it..."

So I did...

It said:

Dear Mommy,

I just want you to know that you are an amazing superstar! You make me smile every day. You are a super mommy! You save the day!

Even the small things like hugging me or saying how my day was. Also, you let me do your hair and give me feedback on my homework. I don't know what I would do without you.

Most kids don't know how hard their moms work. You are by far the best mommy in the world! Also, you are like a warrior mommy. You take trips to Ethiopia and you are one of the most brave people I have met. You drove to the hospital when your elbow was broken!

You have made a huge impact on my life. You teach me how to be kind, caring and helpful. And... you are a super math mommy! You do math on Brighton Academy work and you help with our math homework!

For these reasons and more I think you are the best mommy on earth!

I asked Mebbie what made her want to write this out and she said:
"Well - I saw Mommy vacuuming while we were just hanging out and watching TV and it made me think about how hard she works for us..."
Mebbie - I KNOW you touched your mommy's heart DEEPLY tonight with this letter!

As a guy who LOVES to write and hopes to always be able to be open, authentic, transparent and real... DADDY IS IMPRESSED!

Never, ever lose your heart and spirit Mebbie - you are a special gift to this fallen world!
