    Yesterday I had a great surprise from my oldest son and also one from his unit as well so I just wanted to share this with some and you all have been so supportive that I think you should see it as well.

    this is what my son gave me, just because, no special reason

    Priceless. I know you couldn't be prouder of words from the heart. Like your own medal of honor. God bless your son and his unit, I pray for them daily!

    Wow, just wow. I think we always know our children love us, but to have especially a son put it into words like that, its priceless.

    What a beautiful gift from your son, and from his company. The words are very moving. I would not only hang it in a choice location, I would probably run copies and hang them all over the house! :) Please give your son my thanks for his service.

    LOL you are so right and after the boys walked out to take a stroll through the yard I hung it right over my sewing machine.

    When they came back in after about 15 minutes, he asked me if he could help hang it some where and I told him it's already done.

    He said like where is it, so I showed him and told him I wanted to see it everyday, every minute and every time I get frustrated making a quilt for one of them, to remind me why it so important to "Get-R-Done"

    We both had a great laugh.
