Happy Monday, effuryone, and welcome to a very special edition of Monday Morning Mews.
Motor Mommy has shared with you before about a very talented young man named Matthew. If you missed those posts, you can learn a little about Matthew in this link. We came to know Matthew’s mom, Mary, because she was online friends with my Aunt June (Motor Mommy’s sister).
Motor Mommy was so honored last year when Matthew (through Aunt June) asked to use her photos as inspiration for some of his sketches.
Then….one day last week, a package came in the mail for Motor Mommy. It was from Matthew! And THIS is what was inside:
A framed sketch of ME, wearing my Santa Hat (and looking none too happy about it, I might add). Matthew used this photo, which Motor Mommy had shared on her blog on Christmas Day, 2012.
Now, I ask you: did Matthew not purrfectly capture my grumpy little expression?
Needless to say, Motor Mommy was so very touched by this gift. She and Mary are Facebook friends, and according to his mom, Matthew has been wanting to do this as a gift for Motor Mommy for a long time.
With Mary’s permission, I’m sharing her FB message to Motor Mommy:
“When June first asked you if Matthew could draw from your pictures, he had shared with her that he eventually wanted to share an original drawing of his from your photo. June was so touched by this. Today she is smiling down from heaven as their secret has been carried out.”
And after reading that message…..Motor Mommy reached for the tissues.
Thank you, Matthew, for such a wonderful gift. We all really hope to meet you and your family in person one day. We think you’re a very special young man.
PS. Today’s post is brought to you by the letter “M”!
