But there is still a modicum of originality at work in some places! Like on my computer screen this morning, when I opened an email from my son, for this is what it said:-
In lieu of a card and gifted, wrapped clutter,
I thought in their place these words I'd utter.
They are not mass produced you see,
Just written with love from me to thee.
You are my mum and that's a fact,
And I am me because of that.
Who I am is because of you,
Take the credit because it's truly due.
Your gentle guidance when I was small
Has paid off now that I am so tall.
So on this Mother's Day be clear
Your number one son is grateful he's here.
Thank you Ma for being you,
I love you wholeheartedly. It's true. :-)
Megga big hugs,
No. 1 son.
My lovely No. 1 daughter was organised enough to get the postman to deliver her bundle of love to me yesterday morning, while Night Owl No. 1 son 'posted' his at 00.5 am this morning! Bless 'em both! I love 'em to bits.:-)
