A Hockey Hero

Dear Mr. Bieksa and/or the Canucks Organization,

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your thoughtful kindness. Words can not aptly describe the joy that you gave my son when he saw that envelope addressed to him arrive in the mail yesterday. Nor can they effectively capture the excited disbelief that occurred when he discovered what was enclosed within that envelope. Your incredible thoughtfulness to send him a card with your picture on it and your signature has ensured that he will remain on Cloud Nine for many, many days to come and has cemented your status of Hockey Hero in his heart.

And, just to clarify with you, those letters that he mailed you? Yes, I will admit to writing them for him, but I wrote word for word what he wanted to share with you. You are truly his hockey hero and each day, he becomes you in his hockey adventures. You will never know how many overtime winners, game winners and penalty shot goals you have scored, nor will you realize just how many times you have hoisted the Stanley Cup over your head in victorious glory. The entire world surrounding my son knows that his alter ego is Kevin Bieksa and that you are the best defenceman in the hockey world.

And last night? That thoughtful, precious card went to bed with my son sending him in sweet dreams of hockey and you. Today the card goes everywhere with him so he can proudly show it off.

Thank you so very much for your gesture. Words can not effectively express my gratitude towards you.

I just read your last 3 blogs and I've gotta tell you that I love ya so much. You are an AMAZING mother, a wonderful wife, a beautiful friend, and just one of the best women that I know. Don't be afraid to take time for yourself (when that is supposed to happen I'm not too sure) but believe me when I say that time for you is of the utmost importance. You'll be able to fuel your body, your soul, and it is OK to want a break from the Babes. It doesn't mean you don't love them, you just really need time for you. You give of yourself 24/7 - I know you dream about the kids so it truly is 24/7. I love ya to bits, I wish we lived closer so I could give you the breaks you so need and deserve. That's it, we need to plan a weekend where we aren't a burden to you but a good outlet for some adult time, some good wine, and maybe, just maybe you can get away for a few hours to do something for you. Love ya Babe!!
