If You Give a Missionary a Letter...

If you give a missionary a letter,

He'll ask you to send him his steel-toed work boots in the mail.

And you totally will,

because after all, he's your little boy.

And you really love him.

And if you send the work boots in the mail,

You might as well send some new socks,

And some mints and some candy,

And a few plastic cowboys.

Because you know he loves that kind of stuff.

And you want him to know that you love him,

And that you're really, really proud of him.

Oh Marianne, I laughed out loud at the frog and the chairs and cowboys then I cried when I remember your baby boy is and angel from the Lord and I am so happy you are sharing these special moments with us.
