The other day I was volunteering at my daughter's school. I wanted to surprise her, so I came early to sit with her at lunch. As I was walking up to her table, I saw her tucking the heart-shaped note I had put in her lunchbox earlier that morning into her boot.
I gave her a hug and asked if she saw my note.
"Yes, it's in my boot."
"Why?" I asked.
"Because that's where I put special things so they stay close to me."
Guess what? I now put notes in her lunchbox every day. I know they mean something to her.
The same is true for people who leave comments here. On Sunday, I wrote a post about fear. It was very hard for me to write, to admit. It meant the world to me that people left encouraging and supportive comments. They are all close to me, in my boot so to speak. Thank you.
Plus, I've received several letters during A Month of Letters Challenge. I'm looking forward to going to my mailbox again.
Do you keep special notes/cards or just log them in your heart?
My ROW80 Update
Writing: I'm frustrated because I haven't made one #teamsprinty wordsprint this week. But I did get some writing done, finishing a chapter on my WIP. I need to finish one more chapter before Sunday to be on pace. I think I can do it.
Blogging: Every day here and once on Mom in Love with Fiction. Still behind on posting reviews. Thankfully I took good notes while I was reading.
Editing: Rocking it. I have edited approximately 40 pages since Sunday. I'm in the groove.
Social Media: Barely keeping up. ☑ ROW80 sponsor comments ☑Origins blog posts (5-6 a day) but I need to visit more campaigners!
Reading: I've been too tired at night, but I'm taking my Kindle with me to my daughter's two hour swim practice tonight!
Diet and Exercise: Did a weigh in today. Thrilled that the chocolate fondue only set me back half a pound. I'm back off the sugar and I've walked/run 8 miles in the last two days.
Hope everyone is having a great week. Check out some rocking writers here.
