My son, Peter and his little surprises

Peter is forever giving me flowers from his garden, always leaving them on the kitchen table near my scrapping spot. By the time I thought to take a picture of these flowers that was a bit wilted.

Peter when he was little would alway bring me home heart shaped rocks, which I still have many of them. To this day although he is a man now if he sees a heart shape rock he always gives it to me.
This morning he surprised me again. Early this morning I was laying on the sofa due to my neck and arms hurting and could not get comfortable in my bed. I seen him at the table writing me a note, but he did not know that I was awake. I really thought he was leaving me a note with money to pay his cell phone bill and money for a movie he rented on cox. But it was not that when I woke later in the morning (7:00a.m). It was a note.
The note read "Look at your car on top I wrote something on it! Get me up for 12:oo p.m. today. Ok OK OK OK - Love U mom." So of course I had to go and check it out. There was jack frost on the car and he wrote "I Love Mom From Peter". How uplifting that was this morning. It is all those little things that a person does for you that you will always remember.
