    My favorite present of all time

    My 15-year-old son, observing my recent obsession with embroidery, found an image on the internet, downloaded it, traced it, embroidered it, and made it into a wallhanging for me for Christmas. I cried. It was the single most thoughtful gift I've ever received. It says, "I only bug you because I love you so." The flower has her hands on her hips. So she has attitude!

    This Christmas felt so...flat, but this was a really special gift!

    one word to describe your son - compassionate. He'll grow into a fine young man.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!
