This is what he gave me for Valentines Day this year.
I never doubt how much he loves me and how important I am to him. I save them all and often have at least one in my purse with me and one hanging in my office at work. I can't read them without feeling myself softening inside.
Today is my birthday, and Noah wrote me this "letter."
He also drew me a picture. The picture is drawn over five pages that are liberally stapled together. He is a knight rescuing me (the princess) from a very tall tower.
There is so much I love about this picture. I love that he is rescuing me, but in doing so has armed me with my own swords
What I love the most however, is what he has written at the bottom. "Make the peace be with you Mom." I'd love to think he has written an incredibly profound statement, but in all truth I think he's just confused the message of peace I've been trying to share with him this week with the well known line from Star Wars.
What a gift he has given me!
Make the peace be with you Mom.How much better as a person, a mother, a wife, could I be if I "make the peace be with me?"
I wonder where we would be as a nation, as a world, if we all followed this.
