Day 4 of Slice of Life March, organized by Stacey and Ruth of Two Writing Teachers. I feel as if I am slowly settling into a routine. I am enjoying the writing and the visiting of slices.
Yesterday, while reading some of the SOL posts, had me thinking about the past.
Then, as |I was finally packing away my Valentine unit tub, I discovered a card from my daughter from 17 years ago, when she was 11!
I reread it and I felt the same lump in my throat.
Something handmade means so much more to me than all the bought gifts. This card is a treasure.
Thank you again, my dear daughter. I LOVE you too, so much.
As a turn around, here is a poem to you:
The important thing about you is that you love me.
\you are smart and trustworthy.
You are a dedicated nurse and friend.
You are always there for me.
It's true that sometimes you get impatient with me,
but I'll always love you.
You have a great sense of humour.
You are so lovely, kind and loving.
You care so much for animals - you are now a vegan.
But the important thing about you is that you love me.
