Day 20: Handwriting
I don't think anything can beat a handwritten note.
I would rather have a note from my husband than flowers or jewelry.
I know that when he buys me flowers..he loves me and it makes me feel all gooey inside...but having a handwritten note and reading the words that he took time to write that is coming from his heart means so much more than anything material.
I am so lucky that my husband still writes me love notes. This is one of them. I love them! I keep them and I re-read them ever so often.
Just the other day while Lyla and I were getting ready in the morning she seen this envelope and asked what it was...so I sat her down on the bed....both of our hair dripping wet...and read her daddy's words to her.
I didn't skip a word..I read her the whole letter. She sat still and silent...listened to every word.
When the letter was over...she looked up at me with a smile and eyes glistening...and said, "Daddy loves you"
I said, "I know..I love him too"
Tears came to my eyes.
We might not have a million dollars
She might not get everything she asks for
We probably wont' be able to fly in a private plan to see all wonders of the world
But she knows she is loved
She knows mom and dad love each other
is a solid foundation in which she can rely on.
