Only my mom would do this

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
So my parents left on Sunday (well we left the house while they were at church), mom calls me and said Dad grabbed a ziploc bag of crackers (keep them) and one of my turned wooden bowls-he bought one at the farmer's market, must not have realized that I have a couple. I said I will get in in a couple of weeks-again no biggie.
Before they came mom forgot B-day card (just mail it).
So mom today asked me to call her when I got the card-I called and said nothing in the mail today (bummer I was hoping for a little B-Day $$$)
Anyhow the UPS guy stops and drops off a pkg from mom. Inside, my card (with $$$), the wooden bowl, a magazine, a newspaper article and the crackers!!
Only my mom would send a pkg like that!!

Mothers are the sweetest. My mom would have done the same thing. When I moved away from home, I got the strangest packages from her...including, a sewing kit, spices I just "might" need (I still haven't made anything that called for cumin), clean panties that I accidently left there, folded neatly in a zip lock bag (so they wouldn't get any cumin on them, I guess? Honestly, it is a spice!). The sweetest thing is when she sent me my favorite baby toy. Its amazing what mothers will send you. Just shows she loves you and is still trying to take care of you!

Aw, how sweet is she! You all make me teary - I lost my mom 4 years ago and I still miss her so much. She was sweet just like your mom.
