|14's wall above her bed|
So at the beginning of February I started writing love notes to my family. Each day each member of the family got an "I love you because..." note. As the days passed, the notes became more interesting. I had to find individual characteristics to write about each person. The family...at least 10 and 14 ....came to look forward to the notes. On the 14th I wrote each one a card and made their valentines lunches.
It was a good exercise for me to focus on the good in each one and good for each of them to know the many reasons I love them. It is my hope that they each remembers these small gestures as they get older and perhaps create some of their own memories with their families.
