Things I hold dear to my heart for years

I have oodles of old papers from my children's young years, all in boxes. I saved them for times like these.
It reminds me of the truth, because children usually tell the blatent truth. I have tried many times to wean through these boxes but I just can't bring myself to throw not even one piece away. I've thought of scrapbooking them  and a few special drawings I have framed. Do you save your children's work? It's priceless to read with a hot cup of tea in hand and complete quiet.

Written to me by Brandon in 1995 in a school journal book assignment and will be saved forever

Hope your Friday, the beginning of a Mother's Day weekend is special. 


  1. Beutiful. Thanks for sharing. You've made me tear up. I have a 20 month old that is the most amazing thing in my life, and I am about to deliver my second baby girl any day now. Spring and Mother's day, what a perfect time of year.
    Have a wonderful weekend. Happy Mother's Day

  2. I have all the school papers from my youngest son..And I have a real cute story he wrote in grade school framed..

  3. How special. I wish my daughter wasn't too cool to say she loved me. sniff sniff

  4. That is so precious! Makes you feel like you're doing something right. :)

  5. Oh I am a saver too!! Someday I hope to use some of those things to do a scrapbook.

    Have a wonderful weekend and a Happy Mother's Day!

  6. Oh sweetie, those are the words that count :)

    I saved the boys papers, crafts and even clothes from different milestones...LOL, I am a sap.
