For Mother's Day this year, the 10 of us made a special tribute book for mom. Seven of the ten kids were able to make it up to Kingman to give it to her.
Mom had no idea what was going on even after she opened the custom card. The card had a picture of 10 kids all labeled with each of our names. The card was signed by all 10 of us. When she was done with the card, she asked who the present was from. We reminded her that it was from the same 10 kids that signed the card. :)
She pealed off the gold wrapping paper and found the elegant red box with a picture of her and dad in the center.
She pulled the special book from the box and read the title page "A Tribute to Valerie Robles from her 10 Kids." This is when the tears started to fall.
Nervously and full of emotion, she browsed through the pages of the books reading the thoughtful words of gratitude written by each of her children. All of us just stood there and watched in silence. It was quite a moment! Thankfully, Sarah said she wanted to read the whole thing out loud. We all gathered around Sarah, including mom, and read it together. It was fun to see what pictures each of us included and what funny stories or memories were shared. We are a pretty lucky group of 10 kids to have such a remarkable mother.
Thanks mom! You are the BEST! All of our success is attributed to having such a wonderful mother.
