My other gift from Erin was a small book that she wrote:
Happy mother's day mommy. I love you and you are the best mom anyone could ever have. You take us and our friends places and sometimes just take us places, but that's what makes it the most special. The one thing I love the most is that you take care of me. Mom thanks for all you do and never forget I love you the purplest. You are the best and mom I'll always be right next to you being your little baby girl. And especially always be your friend.
Brian took the kids and they all picked out flowers for me, too. They are all still as beautiful as the day they came home.
Happy belated Mother's Day to all of you. I hope your children made it as special for you as mine did for me.
