The card finally arrives!

My son, Daniel bought a card for me and posted it before my birthday in a mail box on the campus ~ its a bit 'hit and miss' as to how often these post boxes are emptied but l am happy to report that my card finally arrived today!
Daniel is coming home at the weekend and wants to take me down the town to shop and have lunch (his treat). I am just so excited to have him home and spend some time with him.
This letter below was in the card and it brought a tear to my eye. I called to ask if l could post this ~ he said that he did not mind.

Dear Mum,
Wishing you all the best on your b'day. Oh my God! You are so OLD! lol Got in from the city centre a few minutes ago and just shoved some dinner on - sure have been missing the feasts you would make me each night back home. The guys in the flat are already gearing up for a party tonight so can't see myself getting much sleep. Hope you have fun with G. at the Smiddy, that's if you can manage to make it, but l am sure that breakfast in bed tomorrow will help the cold you have go away. Sorry l'm not there this weekend - would have liked to have made you breakfast myself, but will sure try and get home next weekend or the following so we can spend some time together. I'm missing the family loads (even the ginger one) and wish l was with you all. ••••••• is great but it still doesn't feel like home - miss the wee mans footsteps running mad around the house- miss dinner on the table at 6 instead of 9 - miss G. playing the guitar. I even miss having to share a room with the little dude, but most of all, not having the family within a few feet of me when l need a hug or advice. Miss you loads Mum and l appreciate everything you do for me - even although it may seem like l do not always at the time. Thank God we still have far too many years for me to try and make it all up to you. lol Say hello to everyone for me and pass on my love.
Your son, D. xoxoxoxoxo
PS- one day soon you will have that car with the big bow.

What a precious son you have there...following in his mother's footsteps, he is! A sensitive and caring young man.....what more could a mother want?
That card is a treasure!
This is the time they realize how much they appreciate their families (if we've done our work properly) And you obviously have :)You have every reason to be proud of him.

Its nice to know someone misses and appreciates you. A friend of mine makes her birthday last a month so in that respect the card from your son wasn't late. Sorry to here about your wee boy, hope he is feeling a bit better today.

I have two daughters and no sons but if I did, I would hope to have a wonderful relationship like you and your son have. You have a wonderful family and should be very proud.

I hope with all my heart that my Ian is half as sweet when he is a grown boy!! You are obviously a great mom to have such a sweet son.

I hope Sam is feeling a bit better too, poor fella!

I'm getting out to do some visiting this afternoon...came by to catch up on all your news. Ahhhhhhh...sons are such a grand blessing, aren't they? Daughters too for that matter. Sounds as if your darlin' boy steals your heart as often as mine does, too. I'm so sorry to hear you had a cold over your birthday weekend but I hope this finds you feeling much, much better and that your day out with your son was something extra-special. ((HUG))
