Messages

I have been meaning to do this post for a while...sometimes I will go to do something and there will be a little message like this:
It is a sticky note on my laptop.  Every time I see it I smile.

I didn't always save them.  I don't know why I didn't think to start.

Then one day I was downstairs where my Juki 98Q resides.  But I have not been sewing on it in a while.  I happened to sit down and look at it and there was this:

Notice, she had written 'mom,' but it is crossed out with a pencil...I didn't know if you can see the pencil marks or not.  they are sort of light.  What pleasant surprise.

I forgot to take a picture of a Christmas card that she made me last year.  I had left it hanging from then until the other day when she was here.  But she replaced it with this:

And I have to tell this little story...it will melt your heart.  We always lay and talk as she goes to sleep.  And she said, 'I love you, Mamaw.'  And I said, 'I love you, too.  I love you more than you love me.'  She said, "Mamaw, I loved you from the day I was born, and I will love you till the day I die.'  I got a lump in my throat and couldn't do anything but  hug her.

You are making me cry. How I wish we could get together with our two precious granddaughters. I have saved every little scratchy note or picture Eloise has her written since she was old enough to pick up a pencil. I even print out and save her title emails to me. I love her so. My only granddaughter...so special. We are going back and forth right now as we are watching The Voice in Richmond and Lexington. It is like we are sitting on the sofa together. Thanks for sharing that story. I get it! Hugs....g

i am with the others, lots of tears. so so sweet. aww!! i love little sweet messages like this. i worked for a lady and her daughter would draw me pics and whatnot. i loved it!! little ones are so special. real treasures. it breaks my heart when i see kids trying to talk to their parents & they are ignoring them and they are just trying to get their attention for a bit. that is tough. these days we need to drop our phones and be in the moment.
