In fact, since I've always been one to give gifts early because I'm so excited for people to open and enjoy them right away, here's a little sneak peek at one of those fantastic stories:
"My mother is Wonder Woman minus the invisible plane and the indestructible bracelets (though I still believe to this day that she had some sort of Lasso of Truth since she always knew if I was fibbing!). She has the strongest work ethic I've ever known, getting up every day and going to a job that pays the bills but doesn't offer her much by way of satisfaction. Even after long days spent on her feet, she always managed to have dinner on the table and time to spend with my brother and I. She's taught me valuable skills, like how to cook, and silly hobbies like how to crochet (although I never got past the scarf-making stage!). Thanks, Mom, for teaching me the best lesson of all: how to be a wonderful person, friend and mother."
