This is what Pinterest inspired the twins to make for my Mother’s Day present.
Bless you Pinterest.
I love it.
I think the original project might have been titled “52 reasons why we love you.”
But here at Thistlewood we always seem to be a few cards shy of a full deck. 🙂
It’s such a cute idea.
You punch holes in the cards and wire them together with pipe cleaners to make a book of Mother’s Day cards.
And then you write something wonderful on each card about your mother.
Some of the reasons were funny.
And so true.
There’s more drama in sixth grade than in a month of soap operas.
Some were sweet.
Some were a reminder that sometimes rules were meant to be bent a little.
Just a little.
Especially when a really good Hallmark happy ending is just around the corner.
As I read all 49 reasons, I couldn’t believe what they noticed and it was such an insight into what they thought was important.
What made them happy.
What they treasured enough to write it down.
What a gift.
And so I giggled and laughed and exclaimed over each card as two sets of sparkling blues eyes watched me read my gift with eager anticipation.
But when I got to this card….I couldn’t help it. I literally laughed out loud.
And read it and laughed again and again.
You might have even called it a chortle.
Oh sweet twins.
Thank you for your gift of love and laughter.
Even if I’m only a legend….
…..in my own mind. 🙂
PS Happy belated Mother’s Day.
I hope yours was full of love, laughter and beautiful cards, too.
