I hope mom takes a look at my blog in the next two days, I won't see her til Monday. I won't tell you what's in the small package, but I will tell you what's in the folder. I wrote a story about mom for a contest on Christian Women Online. You see, I am experienced in winning writing contests. In 1965 (I think, I was in the fourth grade) I won a writing contest...it was a "Mother of the Year" contest. I wrote a story about mom. You must understand that I was never a very good student, so it was quite a shock. I'm sure it was not my great writing abilities, but all of the wonderful things about my mom that won the contest. The prize was a nice charm bracelet.(very "in" in the 60's!) My recent attempt at writing reminded me of my non-academically creative self. But, I know mom will appreciate it and it will make the perfect gift!!! Mom told me that she will be wearing her charm bracelet this weekend.
