Thursday, I turned 33. I spent the day with my mom at Spa West in Westlake.
It was amazing! We both got facials and I got a pre-natal massage, while she got a relaxation massage. In all my 33 years, I’ve never had a spa day with my mom, so this was extra special!
My favorite gift, though, showed up when I went to the mailbox to get our mail. Someone dropped off a card in our mailbox and the envelope simply said “Happy Birthday”. I opened the card and this is what I found.
The inside of the card reads:
“Hi Mommy, it is little ole me
With a birthday greeting from your baby to be
I’m reaching out at this important time
With a message that is one of a kind
Today is a day like no other
The day you were born to be my mother
Blow out the candles as you make a wish
Inside your belly I’ll give you a kiss
When family and friends start to clap
I’ll join in by giving a tap
I’ll be at your next party so have no fear
Cause next year at this time I’ll be out of here
Happy Birthday Mommy
Love, Your Baby on the Way”
The message from this card went straight to my heart. I wasn’t pregnant during my birthday when I was expecting Blake, so this is the first time I’ve ever received a card like this. The Line “The day you were born to be my mother” made me cry. I love this message and the best part….I truly have no idea who it is from! The handwriting was not Dean’s or my mother’s and they were just as surprised by it. So to my little Baby on the Way…..thank you for this special card. Love, your Mommy
ps…The card is by Franklin Signature Company if any of you are interested in finding a similar one
