Since my almost-teenaged son lives 250 miles away from me and isn't a huge "phone-talker" (neither am I), I've tried to find some creative ways of letting him know that I'm always thinking of him. I send him little pics I find from the internet that I think he'd like through private message on Facebook; we text during episodes of SNL (we always watch it together when he stays with me); and I try to send him cards here and there via snail mail.
Today, as I was making a birthday card for my mom, I put together a little card to send to my son. Thought you all might enjoy a little peek:
I wrote a little message on the inside, slid it in an envelope, and off in the mail it goes!
