Dearest Lydia,

What a wonderful mom you are. Regardless as to disabilities or abilities for 
that matter I have so much respect for you and what you've done. Parenting 
isn't always easy whether one is disabled or not. Being parented isn't easy 
for that matter as we all know...Smile...

Regardless I'm giving you a great big cyber hug for all your efforts over 
the years. They touch me to the quick.

And great moms, and great dads need to be recognized sometimes for the true 
and valuable and basic human beings they are.

I hold you and yours in my heart as a warm welcome against an often cold 
world. You are a treasure and a true asset to all in Michigan.

I wish nothing but blessings upon you and yours.
