Another little treasure ...

When my daughters were about 4 & 5 years old, they painstakingly wrote me a note for Mother's Day.  In their pre-school handwriting, they conspired together and wrote me a letter.  I still have that letter, framed and sitting in my bedroom.  Here's what it said ... exactly as it was written with a cute combination of uppercase and lowercase letters and different colors of glitter marker:

We LOVe YOu MOM!
YOu SMeLL really PrEttY
YOu PLAY WITH US ALL THe TIMe
YOu LOVe US A LOTS
YOu reAd US Good StorIeS
YOu HeLp US WHEN We GeT HUrt

YOu MAKE GOOd BroWNIeS ANd muFFINS ANd COOkIeS
YOu LOOK PrettY
We LOVe YOU MOM!
LOVe, EMMeLYN . MAEA



Today, I got another Mother's Day note that really made me smile.  This one was from Jayden (our 9 year old son, adopted from Ethiopia about 16 months ago), and he worked with his teacher to write exactly what he wanted to say.



  This is another Mother's Day note that I'll keep forever.



Happy Mother's Day to all the spectacular mom's out there!  You are making a lasting and loving impression on your kids even when you don't realize it!!
