My Son Sent Me Flowers

 My oldest son sent me flowers today.  Not for Valentine's Day, just because.  They came early this afternoon and I am overwhelmed with happiness. 
 Have you ever read anything so beautiful in your life?  I know I haven't.
They are the most beautiful surprise.  I must be doing something right with my parenting to have a senior in high school send me these. 

Wow!

I was just about to call you. Wow! That Dave is sure turning out to be a special young man. I think this is just what you needed.

I got your box late yesterday afternoon. The shawls are gorgeous! And thank you for the extra special something inside. You know what I mean.

Love you,
Claudia
