Day 35--Joe's Note


I found this note on the couch in our family/school room, and I can't lie, I cried when I realized what it was. I have had a very emotional week with my little Joe. He is growing by leaps and bounds emotionally right now. Losing that last bit of "babyness" that I so badly want to hold onto. I've had a week of off and on "battles" with him and have felt so guilty for punishing him throughout the week. And, I've been a little short on patience with him at times too, adding to the guilt. I immediately went to him and hugged him, told him how sweet this note was and how happy it made me, how much I loved him. He told me he loved me too, and Hanna--that's what this note says--I love you mama and Hanna, Love Joe.

What a sweet boy, and way to go on writing his first real note too!

What a wonderful note to find! It's a reminder that even through those trials of parenting our children still love us.

Children want our love
They want our correction, when they try us
They want us to know that no matter what they love us!

I love that you captured this special note. I too have those battles & guilt w/ Da'Gorgeouses. All I can pray for is God's grace & guidance to help me have more patience. Hugs & Blessings!

What a sweet child. I love the note. Being a mommy is hard. Sometimes I still can't believe I'm in charge. What a great job you are doing that he would write this note without any prompting. :)
