For the Mommas

Yes, I know that Fathers Day is just around the bend, but this piece about mothering on soulemama had me thinking of mothers. In it, Maya talked about how she writes a short note for her daughter every day and includes it in her lunch box. She doesn't throw the notes away, and keeps them in a jar so they can be read later.

When I was little, my mother used to make me a peanut butter and jelly sandwich nearly every day (guess I'm probably not unique there, huh?). Before closing the sandwich, she would draw her knife through the peanut butter to create the shape of a heart. How happy it made me, knowing that that heart was there, that little morsel of visible love.

What "little thing" did your mother do for you / do you do for your child?

Me and my parents when they were {gasp} my age


  1. You hit the nail on the head....invisable love. So obvious hopefully to the one you love and ever present.

  2. This is such a sweet post. I'm so glad I came by and found it.

    My mom used to draw smiley faces on my orange peels. I'm pretty sure I remember feigning embarrassment to my friends, but I loved it.
