Dear Mrs. Gwen,
We didn't mail your Mother's Day present because we were scared it would break. Besides, we want you to be able to use it when you're here in North Carolina. So, when you come up here in May, you'll get to see your present in person.
It's (obviously) a teacup and saucer, along with a little bowl that you can use for your teabag, or whatever. Your non-artistic daughter (a.k.a. Waterfall) painted it all. It's never seemed to bother you that your kids aren't artistic (case in point: your annual use of those mostly-awful Christmas plates we painted you in grade school), so I hope you'll enjoy using these.
Hope you had a happy Mother's Day, even though your children and grand-cats are scattered from sea to shining sea.
Speaking of sea, we'll "sea" you soon!
Your loving daughter, son-in-law, and grand-cats,
Waterfall, Hubster, Hideaway, and Beau
