Dear Mom

What's One Thing You
Want to Say About Your Mom?

From SoulPancake 

Recently I found out what Kindergarten, First, and Second graders think about the adult women in their families.  At no time were they at a loss for words!  My customers earnestly gave their impressions of mothers, stepmothers, grandmothers, and even great grandmothers. 

It began with Blueberries for SalIf you haven't discovered it, treat yourself
to this Robert McCloskey tale. 

We went on to fashion pouches using
paper decorated with individual
drawings and watercolor images. 
Filled with some sweets and a
note for the intended recipients, the
creations will likely become
Mother's Day surprises.    

Wish I could see the faces of these
beloved women when they're handed
those "little packages of love" during 
the next few days.  Discovering how
the children feel will surely reaffirm
the deep devotion our youngsters
feel for those whom they depend upon.
I savored their lovely colors and artwork. 
The notes were filled with 
honest feelings such as these:

"You are a lot of stuff.  
Mostly, you are pretty."

  "I really, really, really, really, really love you!"

"You are the best!"

"You will always be in my heart!"

"I love playing games with you!"

"The chocolate chip cookies
you make are so yummy!" 

"Our Mom is the loveliest one I know."

"You are as sweet as candy."

 "You rock!"

"My favorite time of the day is
when you tuck me into bed
and give me a kiss good night." 

"Thank you for being my Mommy!"

"You're my hero."

"My mom is the 
prettiest one in the whole world."

"You are so nice to me!"
