I have been meaning to post this since my birthday, but I never got around to it. So, I thought today it would make a great show and tell.
My kids each made me a homemade card or note for my birthday last month. They always do this. I really enjoy this and they are such sweet notes. This year though my 8 year old daughter gave me an extra sweet note.
It says: Mom you are worth millions and millions to me. I am happy for you to be my mom for eight years.
Notes like this make it all worth it. It is so easy to get discouraged with the every day tasks we face as parents. So much of the every day work goes unnoticed and unappreciated from our kids. I know I did not appreciate all my parents did for me. This note came on my birthday which was after I had a long week dealing with sick kids, a messy house, and the rest that goes along with every day life. I guess my daughter knew I needed a little encouragement. She sure gave me some. This note is going in my save pile and I will always treasure it.
