It has been 33 years and you continue to care for me like a little one when I was sick. You truly are the best mother in the world, and I have no idea what I would have done without you. Not once did you question me with this disease, not once did you make fun of me when I had my accidents, not once did you ever forget to tell me that everything would be OK. There are no words in this world to express the gratitude and love I have for you. You truly are the rock and foundation of which has created the stability in my life. Dear Mom, I love you.

Love,
Anthony


this is what I wrote to my mommy. Her and my brother bore the brunt of all the BS I went through. I am going to take her to McDonald's to thank her as well .... JUST KIDDING! ... Wendy's ;)

I am .. ain't I? ;) .... it is just good to feel good again. I had my mother come over for dinner tonight. We live close and talk all the time. She raised my brother and I along with my Grandmother (which is another angel) and my two aunts. I am surprised my brother and I are not on menstrual cycles being around all these woman growing up.

how very sweet! mom's are the best! somehow no matter how bad i ever felt, my mom could always make me feel better with a cool cloth. I hope when my little man is all grown up he is as thoughtful as you.
I think however, you should scrap wendy's and spring for pizza hut!

     That is beautiful Anthony.  I am sure your mom is as proud of you as you are of her.
     I was 64 yrs old on Thursday and my youngest daughter gave me the most beautiful card with such nice words, I almost cried from emotion.  I said to her.."Do you really mean this or just being mushy?"  She said, "Of course I mean it!!"  It feels so good to be appreciated. I know she had to read a lot of cards before picking out that particular one.
     May you have your mom for a long, long time!!!  God bless.

Happy belated birthday, Christine!!! I am glad you have decided to have the cheesesteak. A little birthday present for you.. haha, my mom said the same thing. She knows my brother and I love her, but when we start writing stuff like this she gets all teary-eyed and then thinking we are joking because we like to break her chops.
