    A few days ago Steven came out in the kitchen while I was making dinner to tell me that he would be in his room working on something and wanted the door closed and locked for awhile so he could concentrate on his project . Hes always working on something, that boy so I wasnt suspicious about this but just kept thinking my thoughts and went about making supper. I hadnt mentioned that my birthday was coming up so didnt even know if he knew about it or not.

    Yesterday morning he came out of his room with a big grin on his face with something behind his back. He reminded me of the day he said that he would be working on something with the door locked and then presented me with a handmade card, it says on the front " In this card there is a question everyones waiting to know" then the word open with an arrow. Inside it reads " Heres the question" "What are you" Then it has a little paper pocket with a slip of paper that says pull. When you pull out the slip of paper the word AWESOME! is on it.

    As I read my card I felt a lump in my throat. It must have been my heart that had grown much to large for its usual resting place. This year we dont have money to get me presents from the store. I imagine that people like Paris Hilton or Donald Trump get diamonds or gold watchs or new Porshes for their birthdays. I also imagine that they would trade me in a minute for my birthday gift but sorry Ms Hilton, keep what you have, I have no need for it, my gift is the gift of love and its priceless:cwds:

    Your son is such a sweetie:)

    Homemade cards are my favorate. My kids did that for me and everyone. And for everything. It is so personal and sweet and really shows how they feel.

    Cards mean the most,we've never done gifts in our family growing up. Although my youngest SIL does and expects it(she's from a rich family and hasn't figured out they're poor yet)

    Tell Steven homemade is always the best! What a smart boy!

    That is so sweet and special!! What a fine boy you have! Happy Birthday!!

    You are far luckier than Trump or Hilton. What poor lives they have in comparison!

    Those handmade cards are the best.
    I still have a banner on the wall that the kids made for my birthday three years ago. I refuse to take it down.

    Hope you had a good birthday.:)
