    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!

    That's so wonderful!! My son when he was younger used to do things like that!! Enjoy them. You are truly blessed. At least my 22 year old son still tells me every night that he loves me.

    Well, bless that boy! It's very sweet, and the thought that he would go to all that effort is wonderful. Boys do love their mothers!
