I found this sweet letter on a clipboard that I used in a meeting. I’m posting it here as a reminder that my kids do indeed love me. The feeling is mutual.

I am super lucky to be their mom.

When I showed my son the letter, he said, “oh yeah, I wrote that in third grade.” That was last year.

I hope he keeps writing me letters and cards like this!

It’s the end of another school year and I’ll still have a kid in elementary school and a kid in middle school next year. I am that “seasoned mom” compared to those moms with kids just starting school. It truly goes by quickly. I’m reminding myself of this as I rush around after school to drive my kids to sports and activities. It is a blessing to watch your kids grow up and find their passions. And to look back and see how far they have come.

The sweetness of mom-life is something to hold onto.
