Friday Favorites - Gifts From My Daughter

Sometimes my daughter just shows up with a precious little gift that she has come up with. She is so sweet and I will say it is uncanny how she knows just when I need something like that.  A thoughtful gesture from her is definitely one of my favorite things.

 A few weeks ago she brought me a rose from the front yard.

Yesterday she made me this note {complete with her name, the date & her student # from school, what an overachiever}.

This is one of things I love most about J. She has such a sweet heart. I love that someone will pop into her mind and instead of just thinking about doing something nice {which is too often what I might do}, she acts on  it. Thank you sweet girl for blessing my life.

Of course she had to get in on the action!

Awwwww!!! That is so sweet! :) I have many little notes from my kids that I've tucked into various spots around the house throughout the years. It's my way of bringing a little smile to even a mundane day. For instance, I am digging for a recipe in my *ahem* file (actually a plastic shopping bag full of handwritten and clipped-from-magazines recipes I've collected over the years) and lo and behold, there is an "I LOVE YOU MOMMY" from my now 27 year old son. Or I'm transferring the contents of one purse to another and discover the Hello Kitty note card from my now 24 year old daughter, telling me I'm the best mommy in the whole wide world! There are drawings and snippets from all four of my kids that I come across from time to time and I LOVE IT! :)

I discovered your blog through Rachel's (Friday Favorite Things). You have a beautiful family! :)

I LOVE homemade things by children - mine is only 1, but LOVES crayons right now, so I put up a picture on the kitchen cupboard that she colored {scribbled!} It brings me so much joy!
Great to meet you - Happy April!!!

What a little gift she already has for lifting up others! I am sure God will use that in big ways:)

What a sweet little thing! Gifts from kids are always the best! And I'm a little nervous for Blog Sugar, too! It should be fun! You have a very sweet family! :)

Precious! There is nothing like gifts from the heart from our children.

. . . and that's a true story said...

This is so sweet! Something to look forward to when I have kids. :)

Sweet sweet sweet. Those little gifts from our gifts have such a place in a momma's heart.

Love your friday favorites. Hope to see you this friday as well!

and please forgive me tardiness in thanks -- we were gone at a retreat for church all weekend and my time was quite fragmented.

Oh wow...our girls sound exactly the same. I am always amazed at the heart my 7 year old has. I'll be blogging sometime this week about the note she wrote us(hubby & me) in church yesterday. It was simple, sweet and brought me to tears just like that:)
