It's not like it is real difficult to send a gift in the mail, but knowing what to get when you aren't at home very often is tricky. You don't really know what they need or have. (Although my dad was talking a lot about a trolling motor when he was here this year, sorry dad, we don't know anything about motors!) After saying all that, I wanted to send a shout out to my mom and dad and say thanks!
To my mom and dad -you are the best! I love it when we have time to catch up on the phone. I love it when you send me emails telling me what is up with you. I love it when we get little care packages with chiropractic balloons and advil samples. I love it when you talk to the kids or send them cool videos, especially when you are dressed up in costumes and have magic wands. I love it that the two of you still really love each other and enjoy hanging out together. I love it that you have 3 girls who have all fallen in love based on your strong example and all have their own healthy families. I love it that you only work 3 1/2 days a week and takes lots of cool holidays. I love that you enjoy life and try to help us enjoy our lives as much as possible, too! I love it that you have lots of friends to be with. I love it when you come to visit and I can't wait until you retire when you can come and stay for a whole month! I love it when you visit and do a bunch of work around here, like build a deck, clean the garage, sew curtains, paint a bedroom, fix a toilet, fix a door, make supper, plant the garden, take the kids on adventures... I love you both a lot! I hope you know that! Thanks for everything and happy mother's day and happy father's day! Sorry, all I gave you was this blog entry!
