I'll Stop the World and Melt With You

What a beautiful day it is already. Woke to freshly brewed coffee and cake, gorgeous flowers, a couple of c-notes tucked into the waistband of my thong, a mountain of homemade cards (one of which was from my boy -- a big flower on the front, nonsense scribbles on the inside, though his name was carefully printed in large block letters, and a stale Teddy Graham taped to the back, which I was forced to eat). I'm looking forward to the steak and chicken and corn on the cob Lar will be preparing for lunch. Lovely, lovely day.

To the special lady in my life….

by your daughter, Ariel

You’re very important, I love you so dear. You’re really nice and the least strict of all. Of course, some chores here and there, like keeping my room clean and cleaning my hamster’s cage, and helping pick up Brandon’s toys, and putting my clean clothes away, but compared to what I would have to do if you weren’t there? That would be awful!

Of course, I love you for more reasons -- that’s not even 2% of why I love you.

I love you because you keep me alive and make me feel good when you hug me and watch TV with me and just say good night with a kiss, even!

You say you love me, I say it right back. I say I love you, you say it right back, too!

You write stories and poems, what a good writer you are!

You cook great food and yum! It tastes like you could be a professional chef!

No one could replace you. No one else cooks like you. No one else looks like you. No one else loves me as much as you do!

A special lady in my life…

Anyone can guess who that is -- my MOM!


HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all my mommy friends. Love you all.

Happy Mother's Day Ms Lori.

Love that letter. You should probably frame it.
