Hopelessly Sentimental! :-))

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

Yes, I admit it! I'm one of those sentimental types! I cry when I watch a Hallmark commercial, for Pete's sake! ha! Anyway, when I saw this idea on Pinterest I KNEW it had my name written all over it!


Yesterday, I decided to make this. My changes: I didn't add the Rosettes, but I had my son drill a small hole in the frame, and I attached a string w/dry erase marker so we weren't searching for the marker.

Well, last night I wrote Nate a note on it. It was his first day back to work after having surgery on his clavicle. I wrote: [I love you because--that part is permanently printed] you're such a hard worker and you NEVER complain. xxxoooo Mom P.S. Leftover tacos in the fridge.

When I woke up this morning, my SWEET son had erased my note and WRITTEN me a note back! You can't imagine how this blessed me!

It TRULY took my breath away! My 20 year old son expressing his love to me in such a simple way! He had worked, and I'm sure he was tired, but he took the time to write me this note! I can't wait to HUG him when he wakes up!!!!

    Sometimes it is the little words that we don't get to hear very often that push us into the 'mushy' place!! What a great son you have!

    I agree with GourmetLoser - you have such a wonderful family! And apparently I am hopelessly sentimental as well, since just reading your blog made me cry. emoticon

    That is so precious! Thank you for sharing this.
I loved the way you started out your blog too. I've noticed that as i get older, I am more easily touched and therefore more emotional.
You raised a good son. =)

    I love the board. We have a notebook that we pass around the family, writing notes in it and sticking it under a pillow to be found later. She had to have those sugar cookies at the end. They are my downfall. I love those things, so my family does not allow me to buy them.

  What a great idea! I also cry at almost anything touching so I know what you mean! I just might have to dust off my crafty hat and make one for our house! Thanks for sharing! BTW - I've not tried Pinterest yet. I requested a login/invite and received a message back I'm on their waiting list. I'm not a great at waiting but will try my best! Have a great day! emoticon

    What a lovely idea and how wonderful it is being so well received. I think it is well worth copying. I honestly believe we don't say thanks enough to our families.

Hugs, Sunny
