Coming home is favorite.

Ironic that in order to have such an experience, however, an actual absence must be engaged in.

To receive a note like this while you’re gone is pretty emotional; even more emotional is embracing that same note-writing little girl when she runs out to greet you as you pull up.

Don’t leave if you can help it. If you have to, you’ll experience the joy of a sweet return. Then don’t leave again unless you have to. ch:

So true. I know all too well the real sorrow…

So sweet. Such a precious little girl.

That’s so sweet! I remember writing my Dad all kinds of notes like that when I was young, never knew how much they meant to him until recently. Looking forward to receiving my own someday. 🙂

    Cool story. I had a similar experience a few years ago when my dad presented me a book that had all the notes I’d written him over 10 years in my childhood. There were hundreds. He saved them all.
