My Eagle

Jason is out of town for two weeks, and I’ve shocked myself with how fantastic we’re doing. Who knows? Maybe I won’t die of motherhood after all.

I got home the other day and the kids found this on my doorstep. It didn’t have a note, just a scratch piece of paper with my name on it. If you read last week’s article, it won’t surprise you that I cried all over it. Someone out there is really, really cool.


  1. I love your readers. How very cool!! You certainly do deserve it, my friend!!

  2. How cool Annie! You are LOVED!!!

  3. {Jaw drops.} So cool. That is a spine tingling tender mercy right there.

  4. That is THE most awesome Eagle I’ve ever seen.

  5. Wow, my friend! I hope someone steps up and claims it so they can have a proper thank you! (And this, as you once said, is karma. You’re getting back what you put out there.)
