My amazing son treated me to a birthday weekend in Memphis with an outdoor concert with Lisa Marie Presley at the very venue her father, Elvis Presley, first performed live, a meet and greet with Lisa Marie Presley and Priscilla Presley at Elvis' car museum, autographs and pics, and a private midnight tour of Graceland with a Graceland archivist.  But the most beautiful part of this monumental trip for this huge Elvis fan, was being the father of the son in this video.


I debated whether or not to show this publicly because non-Elvis fans may not get it.  But this is more about a wonderful son than it is the Presley's.

Turning 50 has not been the easiest event to deal with for some reason.  I usually can talk myself into or out of most anything, but mentally,  I'm having a hard time with it.

This very generous gift from my son not only took my mind off the number, it helped me to celebrate the wonderful man he has become.  This weekend I was taken through every emotion known to man.  To date, other than the birth of my two children, I can't think of anything that tops this past weekend.  And if you can name it, I've probably done it.

I love my children and the talent that was Elvis Presley.  I respect both.  To have the two come together for an unforgettable weekend, is priceless.  After this weekend and this video, my bucket list is complete.

To my AMAZING, GENEROUS, LOVING, CARING, HEART OF GOLD, HANDSOME son Blake, thank you for this most amazing gift.  I love you with all my heart.
