They, Adam and Alicia, presented us with a gift -- Alicia's handiwork beautifully framed that says, "Family ties are treasured things, and far though we may roam, the tender bonds with those we love, still pull our hearts toward home." Heartwarming. I was over-clempt, couldn't help tearing up.
|Good friends. They don't come any better.|
Another surprise, one from our children, is an overnight stay at an amazing resort hotel. All we have to do is pick the date. Does anyone else know how hard it is to accept an extravagant gift from your kiddos? Yeah. (I'm pretty sure my parents know, and I'm going to follow their example and accept gratefully.) So, I'm getting totally psyched about making time for an upscale date with my totally wonderful husband.
