notes are very good
Sam loves notes. He loves getting and giving notes. Lucky me I am the primary recipient. Although last week he did give a note to Amy (a high school senior) during dessert club that said:
I want to remember these sweet notes. (I’m also racking my brain trying to come up with a creative way to document and save this part of our everyday life.) I have hundreds of notes. As a teacher I’m enamored by his development and growth. As a mom I relish the sweetness and genuine love that comes from each one. Here are three I’ve received recently.
|Mom, You are very special. Love you, Sam|
|“This is a diagram of my love.” (Notice the arrow from Sam (he’s the
one in the trains shirt) to the hearts under
my feet and then another arrow from the hearts to me.)
|This one is from last night. We had a big day of
back to school shopping, out for lunch,
and a movie. He said when giving me the note,
“Did you know if you make a mistake when writing,
you can just cross it out and keep going?”
Just because notes are a very good thing. I think I’m going to send a few today.
