Today I'm linking up to Jamie at the Oliver's Madhouse Magic Moments linky. There have been so many magic moments but I think one that sticks out most is the note I got from my 10 year old son yesterday on Mother's Day.
You see at the grand old age of 10 my son considers himself a big boy who a lot of the time doesn't need his Mammy's help. In fact Mammy is banished from the room when his friends come over to play. Whilst he still thinks I'm 'beast' at scrabble, I can no longer woo him with my football skills and singing talents. Hugs at the school gate are non existent in case his friends tease him. Basically he is growing up fast.
However, yesterday he presented me with a homemade card and inside is a note that I will treasure forever.
A Note to My Mum
I just want to let you know...
I will always love you.
You are the best Mam in the world.
You are the kindest Mam ever.
You make the best dinners.
You will protect me no matter what.
I love you Mam.
Happy Mothers Day
......and in that magic moment ...the the tears flowed.
