“Letters from Mom”

Mom wrote me hundreds of letters and would often send me greeting cards with snipped comics or articles from newspapers or magazines she thought I'd enjoy.

Every now and then mom would send me a care package at college. It was usually some cookies she’d baked and assorted groceries, like boxes of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese and Oodles of Noodles ramen. Man, I used to appreciate getting those so much.

Ok, David, Love,

I was going to send you an exam “goody” box, but I guess a survival kit is more necessary now. These are pretty expensive groceries. I don’t know what else I could send – I hope it helps.

Please be aware that I’m counting on you to manage your money better next semester. I’m assuming you’ve learned a lesson here – but I figure everyone deserves at least one minor bail out.

Anyway, don’t deposit the check until after 2:00 Thursday. And, please, don’t spend it on you-know-what and you-know-what.

You probably need your registration, huh?

I love you so much. More than you’ll ever know. And, believe it or not, more each day.

Hang in there. (When do exams start? Don’t blow a whole weekend of studying, my love. Use your wisdom.)

Ah, heck, I love you — no matter what or when, and I really am proud of you.
