A Present for Mama

Tommorrow is Mother's Day. That means that lots of husbands and kids are frantically searching for presents for mom. It's no exception in my family. Today my daughter asked if I would take her to the mall to go shopping for the occasion. We went, and she picked out something nice from the Vera Bradley store (with her own money, I might add). Then there's my husband. "Woman," he said. "Why don't you go look in the back of my truck to see what I got you for Mother's Day." "Okay," I said. I walked outside and looked. What do you think I saw? A toilet. I kid you not. That man got me a toilet for Mother's Day. I had been complaining about having to unclog the toilet every time my son used it. Apparently my husband thought he'd help me out with that little problem. Thanks, honey. I appreciate your thoughtfulness. It's what I always wanted. Just please don't make me install that thing!
