That is one truly beautiful love letter. And the photo of your mama and Maybelle is so perfect. There's something completely infectious about Maybelle, and I believe I know where she "caught" it!
This is beautiful. You are fortunate to have such a supportive and loving mama. I hope to be this kind of mom to my little boy.
I think I thanked you for this beautiful article on FB, but just thought maybe I should also thank you here. Sheila read it on our walk this morning - she hadn't seen it before - and we both got teary again! You write so beautifully, and touch my heart so deeply. I love you!
