And I’ll send all my loving to you.

20120605-194751.jpg

When I was little, my mum would sometimes put little notes in my lunch box. She would write things like “your mummy loves you” and “hope you are having a lovely day” and there were always lots of kisses and a smily face! I still remember the warm feeling they gave me, when I would open up my sandwich, and see my mum’s familiar writing tucked inside the wrap.

I like to do the same thing for my own children. School can be a tough place sometimes. When your friend doesn’t want to sit with you, when your teacher gets cross, when you can’t do the maths work; it’s nice to know that there is someone waiting for you at home who loves you no matter what.

Do you leave love notes for your kids or partner? Have you found a note written for you? (I don’t think one ever outgrows the thrill of receiving a love note!)

  1. My kids aren’t in school yet, but I do love to write notes to my husband sometimes. It has been a long time since I have…thanks for the inspiration!

    One time recently, my husband left post-it notes around the house in random places…even surprising me when I opened the refrigerator with an “I love you, babe!” My son, saw how happy I was about it, that he wrote post-it notes and left them for me (He couldn’t write yet, but he wrote random letters!). It was so sweet. 🙂

  2. Hi. My husband is not a letter writter, but occasionally he will write a practical little note which I keep and cherish. One comes from early in our marriage when we were living in our new house with no running water. He poured out a basin of water and then did not use it. Wanting not to waste it, he floated a bit of paper on the surface with a written note. The note said ‘clean water’… I still have it after 32 years! Jane

    1. My husband is the same. I have kept a post it note for 10 years that he wrote when we were first going out, because back then even his writing made me swoon!
