I Am Blessed!

Well, I wasn't going to post today. I was just going to sit back and chill like I have been all week. And by chill I mean take the pain medicine the doctor prescribes, sit back in my new over sized chair/ottoman my parents just bought me and watch tv.

I chill well. :)

Today's my (*cough* 32nd *cough*) birthday. And I want to share with you what a wonderful son I have!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jacob got ready for school this morning in a flash. Usually he ddrrrrrrraaaaaaagggggggsss it out. But today he was right on it. I never thought a thing of it.

I did enjoy his good mood. Usually he wakes up grumpy. And that doesn't mix well with me. I've always been a morning person and never understood the problem with waking up thankful and cheerful. But over the years as my pain has increased... morning is VERY difficult for me. I hurt so bad that I just can't take anything other than what I'm dealing with.

I know it sounds terrible. Mornings are bad. And when Jacob's in a grumpy mood we usually don't speak much outside of a little small talk and 20 "I love you's".

But this morning Jacob was so up beat and positive. And that alone was a wonderful gift! But he wasn't finished yet...

He gave me this yummy new Vera Bradly purse (in Mod Floral Pink):
And this delicious sterling silver and mother of pearl cuff watch:

But my all time favorite... and gift enough for every birthday to follow!

("I could never thank you enough for all the things you've done for me...")

(I cut it off because he always writes his first AND last name. Which is a good thing. I don't wanna confuse him with that OTHER Jacob! :p)

My FAVORITE part... the part that had the tears rolling...

"We always have our ups and downs, but we always breakthrough.
I know how much you love me, but do you know how much I love you?
I love you more than anything else in the world.
I hope you know that even if I seem like I'm mad before school when I leave I think of all the fun things we've done in the past, and it always makes me laugh.
Sometimes I think of something funny at school, and I always chuckle or laugh loudly at school!
I love you very much!! =)"

*sob* *sob* *sob* *sob* *sob* *sob* *sob* *sob* *sob* *sob* *sob* *sob*

And in true Jacob and Kimmy fashion... one sentimental card and one funny card.

Inside he wrote: "Because I KNOW how much you love O.J. Simpson :)"
Too funny!

See! I am truly, TRULY blessed!!!!

And for you, my dearest Jacob...

I love you more my than our dvr! (Jacob and I always tell one another we love the other more than our favorite things. You know... like "Jacob, I love you more than a bean burrito plus sour cream from Taco Bell" :p)

And I know you love me more than football!

Every day I thank God for giving me YOU!!!!! You are, have been and always will be my greatest gift!

Michelle sent me to say Happy Bday
and to say you are blessed...

Kids are great...

That was a very special thing your son did...

I am sorry you are in pain (been there done that)

It must be hard on him, it is hard on my kids when I am not well so I dont want to tell them when I am hurting or been to the Dr or hospital

and they get so mad when I dont tell them things

Happy B-Day. Kids make it all worth while with just a few words every now and then. Sometimes my son comes up and hugs me and says "I'll be your boy forever", nothin' sweeter than that.

Thanks for swinging by HuFlungPoo...

Wow, you are training him well! His wife is going to be one lucky lady...maybe she WILL wear the nightie instead of the flannel ;0

Seriously, though, so sweet.

I've come over from Sandy's blog...and I'm glad she mentioned it was your birthday. This is such a beautiful heartwarming post and you certainly are very blessed to have such a wonderful son as Jacob:-) What he wrote in your card had me in tears, so very touching. That Josh Groban song is my very favourite of his!! Have a wonderful birthday and if you have time, come over to my blog and enter my chocolate contest:-) xox

Your son is truly remarkable. It brought tears to my eyes when I read the part that he wrote about thinking of something funny at school and bursting out in laughter. You've done so well raising a perfect gentleman, Kimmy. You deserve those beautiful gifts, too!

I just stumbled apon your blog by a mere accident, and I have to say, it's probably the best accident anybody has ever made. I've read many posts, and I'm happy to see though you have a hard time in life, you live it lightly. It's not everyday you hear about a person like that.
