My children all go to Catholic schools and this is Catholic Schools' Week. Each day the kids show their appreciation for all the different groups of people who make their education possible. One day it's the parish, one day it's the volunteers, one day it's the parents......you get the idea. So Tuesday was Parent Appreciation Day and my younger boys both came home with notes of appreciation. Aaron drew me a picture of a sun with the words "You light up my life". I love his pictures.
But the best part was the handwritten letter I got from my 13 yr. old, Daniel. Here it is, word for word:
It must be a hard job taking care of four children by yourself. Even harder than the job you go to everyday and as I right this letter you are working this job. I thank you for the shelter that you have given me and the delicious food you feed me day by day. I most of all thank you for your support in keeping my health, strength, and athletics strong.
That makes me feel good. Yep, I got a little teary.
I love that silly boy.
