Since Mother’s Day is this weekend, I thought I’d tell you a story about my awesome mom and why I love her so much.
Ever since I was little my mom has put little notes inside my lunches. They aren’t always long, sometimes they are just a tiny piece of paper with a heart and “mom” written on them, but they always make me feel good when I see them. One day I asked her why she always wrote me notes, because most other kids don’t get notes, at least not as much as I do. And she said, “You know Chloe, I just always want to make sure you know I’m thinking about you and what a wonderful daughter you are and how proud I am of you. That’s just my way of adding a little something special into your day since just knowing you’re my daughter makes my day special.”
After that, I started putting notes in HER lunch whenever I remembered. Just cause I wanted her to see them during the day and smile. It’s kind of a fun thing we do with each other and it’s like our own special way of saying ‘I love you’ to each other. We also went to Build-A-Bear Workshop and each made a bear and recorded a sound for each other so when we are far away we can still hear each other’s voices. It’s probably my favorite bear in the world.
Don’t forget to do something special for your mom this Sunday. And remember, it doesn’t have to be anything big, or expensive, just a little something to let her know she’s special.
Talk to you later!
