What mama in the world doesn't love a little Love Note from their little ones? (I see no one has raised her hand...) Moms love notes. They love ones that are just scribbles when our babies are just wee ones. We love ones that are full of misspellings when they are learning to write. Even though I'm not there yet, I'm sure I'll love ones when they are off at college and missions. And, while I have quite some time before this one, I'm sure I'll love ones when they are married and parents themselves stating that I WAS right all those years ago when they thought I was a complete buffoon. :) This love note is special. It's written on the back of a note pad. You know when you use all the paper and there's just that piece of cardboard on the back of it that you just chuck? Except this one isn't garbage. Carter wrote us this note and set it on our bathroom counter about a week before he was diagnosed. As bad as it is to admit, I wasn't planning on keeping it. I hadn't gotten around to throwing it away when we were faced with our son maybe not living a full, long, healthy life. At that moment, that little piece of garbage became one of my most prized possessions. It's been on my mirror since then and every day it makes me smile and thank our Lord for letting us fight this fight.
Side note: the note above that is a VERY sweet card from my bestest friend. She's amazing and has had a rough go the past few months. I heart her and I'll keep her note forever and ever along with Carter's.
