Mother's Day Gift and a Heaven Story

This Mother's Day, I received a precious gift from Timmy. He came home on Friday with a black scroll with a ribbon around it and told me it was for my special day. So, on Sunday morning, I opened up the scroll. On the top was a picture that Timmy drew of me, and on the bottom was this:

His teacher had asked him questions, and he "filled in the blank". Since it's hard to read, I will retype it here. (Timmy's answers are in bold)

My Mom is the most wonderful mom in the world!

Her name is Elizabeth.
She's as pretty as a rainbow.
She is 40 years old.
She has green eyes and red hair.
She weighs 55 pounds and is 10 feet tall.
Her favorite food is pizza.
In the good ole days when she was little, she used to play with baby toys.
I think my Mom is funny when she is silly.
But I know when she's really angry when I get on red.
I wouldn't trade my mom for X-men.
I love my Mom because she makes great food.

Happy Mother's Day Mom
Love, Timmy (I love that he signed his own name)

Timmy was SO proud of this gift. He gave me about a million hugs on Mother's Day! I told him that HE was the one that made me a mommy, and I that I love him very much! I was able to spend the day with my husband and my boys...it was a great day.

HEAVEN STORY - The sweet, precious baby that I have been praying for since last year, Kayleigh Anne Freeman, passed away last night. If you have been reading my blog, then you know about sweet Kayleigh. If you don't know what I am talking about, please click on the "Praying for Kayleigh" button on my sidebar. My heart goes out to this family right now. They never got to bring her home to her room. Please pray with me for peace for this family during this time.
