Hugs and Kisses

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom!

This last year has been a tough one and I cannot thank you enough for being there for me. Thank you for shaving my head. Thank you for sitting with me for my chemos and then staying the night. Thank you for cooking me special meals to tempt my nauseous tummy. Thank you for going to billions of doctor appointments with me. Thank you for cleaning and doing laundry and shopping and running errands for me when I was too tired to do it myself. Thank you for listening to all my symptoms and ailments in gory detail. Being a mom is hard enough but I think it is that much harder to take care of a very sick child. Well, I am not a kid anymore but I know I will always be your child. So thank you, Mom.

Happy Mother's Day, Mrs. H. And thank you for taking such good care of "our" kranki. You two are blessed to have one another. More blessings to you both.

A big second on that! I knew she had to get her "wonderful" from somewhere...now we know!

Thank you!

Not many kids ever have to thank their moms for shaving their heads. As awful as it was for you both, I'm sure she was glad she was there to help you through it.

Happy Mother's Day, to Kranki's mom and to Yoshi's mom!

Your mom sounds totally cool. Happy Mother's day to Mom Von Krankipantzen. I have a poem for moms at my blog if anyone wants to hear it. It's not mushy at all, I promise.

She deserves all the thanks, and you deserve all that she did for you!

Happy Mother's Day, mom of Krankipantzen!

I am so grateful she has you, your support and love in her life.

This got me a bit teary, Kranki. Moms are moms no matter how old you get. And you got a good one. Happy Mother's day to the lady in the chic glasses and the pink sweater!

Ahhhh...very sweet, Ms. Kranki.

Sweet Mom, sweet daughter! Oh, and sweet grand-kitty, too! Happy Mom's Day to you Kranki (or should I say, "Yoshi's Mom"...) and to your beautiful Mom, too.

Wow! Mama Kranki is HOT! We can all see where you get your beauty! Happy Mothers Day to Mama Kranki and to Yoshi's Mama. You deserve all kinds of happiness in the next year.

Happy Mama's Day, Mrs. Kranki! What a beautiful mommy, and she loves you enough to shave your head, too! That was a touching post. This year has been a rollercoaster for the both of you, but think of how much better it was just because you had one another.

Happy Day to EVERYONE, moms or not.

What a lovely post. Your love for her flows from every line. It was a rough year for both of you. But look where you are now.

Happy Mother's Day to you and your Mom!
