Yes, They Really Do Deserve A Day Of Their Own



Celebrated Mother's Day a day early and went to an early dinner (never been fond of buffets but it really was the company that mattered) with my mother, father, sister-in-law, two brothers and grandparents. Was hoping to see my sister, brother-in-law and the twins but Corey's grandfather passed away so they had to leave town for the viewing earlier that day. A little bit prior to dinner, I popped a surprise of Willie Nelson tickets on Mom to which I could actually hear a bubbling of excitement in her voice. I picked up an extra ticket for my brother Michael (who came into town for Mom and it wouldn't be right for him to come out here only to have me drag her off to a concert.) I actually remember promising to take Mom to one of his concerts and this just worked out. The show was phenomenal (ok, it wouldn't have hurt if the lady behind us didn't spend the whole show talking to someone further back about how many of his shows she's gone to.) Heard a great new song that could be titled "Superman" but we'll see. I also got to check out my little brother's smooth moves with the women-folk to which I can only say that a mohawk can get you a lot of positive attention from women that are top heavy. We all had a great time and I left with a Dixie flag signed by Willie as well as a feeling that I did good. My mother has struggled with a lot in her life and a lot of that was raising us after her divorce. If anyone is deserving of her license plate "SIRVIVE," it is her. She has raised 4 children that have backbones, consciences and great health. Thank you, Mom. For all you gave and continue to give, I can only hope to brighten your days some.Posted by Hello

Aww, you did awesome! Your mom sounds very deserving and you're deserving of great son credit!

P.S. Why didn't you ask Willie to sign your boob?

Thank you, Jenn. We actually headed out from the outdoor concert with the masses and didn't bring a boob to get signed. I could have asked Mom if I could borrow one of hers but I didn't want to pressure her on her special day. B)

Your mother sounds fantastic. Not just because she raised you, but also because she has an appreciation of Willie Nelson! You did a fantastic job for Mother's Day. Nicely done.
