The Power of Love Notes

love note far shotMonday was perfectly living up to it’s reputation.

Princess D missed her bus, so I lost 45 minutes of my morning driving her there. Inherited Teen wasn’t feeling well and I couldn’t find a way to get her home, and spending time trying to figure that out made me late for work. And then there were a fair number of small, Monday style annoyances that happened making me wish I had never gotten out of bed.

Then I found a love note in my purse from Princess D. It was from a year ago when she was 5.

It made me stop for a moment and smile. Tears came to my eyes, happy tears, and suddenly Monday and it’s manic ways didn’t matter anymore. I had my love note to remind me there are bigger things in the world than being late and making mistakes.

Children really can help you put things back into perspective.
