To A Tough Mother From A Tough Mudder


My son Kellen is participating in a Tough Mudder Contest this morning.  I refrained from Googling exactly what is involved in this contest after he told me that he had to sign a "death waiver" to compete. Ignorance and a BIG bottle of wine is bliss.  When I regain consciousness this afternoon, hubby can tell me if my son is still alive.

I cried my eyes out when he sent me this photo.  I'm still crying as I write this. Breast cancer awareness month couldn't and won't pass before Mags bawls at least a gazillion times over the outpouring of thoughtfulness and generosity of time, talent and treasure from so many, many people.  Please pray that my son survives this activity so I can thank him.   And much heartfelt thanks to all of you for your continued prayers for me and my family.

Love the picture of your son, and it's pretty obvious he loves you, too! Sending positive thoughts his way for the contest, and prayers your way, as well.

That is so sweet! What a great way for a son to honor his moms! I have friends who run the TM every year and they always have a blast. Enjoy your wine and wait till you see how filthy your boy will be at the end! LOL

The picture of your son brings tears to my eyes. He is awesome, and this reflects what a pretty awesome Mother you must be!
My kids walked in a recent Cancer Walk here in Munster, IN with me a few weeks ago, for me, as well. It was a lovely day and reminded me, yet again, what an awesome family I have been blessed with!
