I bought flowers for you and me. In the card that will come when they are delivered Thursday it says something I wrote to you. I used up all the characters it allowed me to write so it reads brief but you know about how you called me Sher yet I don't know if you know how I learned to love that you called me that. Here is what I wrote to you:

You have a pretty name and you gave me a pretty name. When I named Leah I learned what a mother desires when she names her daughter. A daughter does what the mother did. Your desires came true.

Sher, mom I love this name too.
