It was late the night before Valentine’s Day. I had already decorated the kitchen and as I made my way to bed, I remembered the treats I had bought for the kids that I was waiting to put out until Hallie went to bed. I turned the lights on in the kitchen to find hand made cards lining the counter for each of the boys (and for Steve and me) – Hallie’s handiwork. I’m not sure why she is so good to those brothers but they don’t know how good they’ve got it.

I added treats to the cards she made and realized I couldn’t leave her without a special note. I quickly replicated her idea and made a card for her.

The next morning I asked her when she made cards for her brothers – she replied, “several days ago.” She is more than I could have hoped for and I love how thoughtful she is and how much light she brings to our family!
