Thursday's Treasure

My Sophie is the early riser of the family. While I was still snoozing until the last possible second this morning, she was up quietly making a card for me in her room. As soon as my alarm went off, she came in and presented it to me... along with a gift wrapped package. I adore the fact that she spent her free time thinking of me, and that she can be so generous with her kindness. In the package (well put together in Christmas paper and masking tape), was her favorite plastic top. The card, in case you can't make it out, reads, "I (heart) you, Mommy. You are the best." There is just nothing better than receiving a "just because" gift!! I heart you, too, my little one!

Oh yes, that's definitely a treasure. What a touching post; thank you for sharing this special item with us today.

Sometimes I miss those little notes from the kids--I still get notes, but the inventive spelling isn't quite as inventive nowadays! I could read Sophie's note without a problem. Funny, we must be all wired the same way.

such a sweet little girl! my girl likes to draw and color things too and gives them all to me as present, she draws about a dozen a day so you can imagine how much stuff I have all over the house.

that is just precious! I used to do stuff like that for my mom! I would pick flowers from her garden and she kept them in her diary

Its those little unexpected notes and cards made spontaneously that are the most special, both at the time you receive them and when you find them years later - cos I cant ever throw them away!
