Email of the Day: When They Think of Love, They Think of Me

I am a mommy to three really great kids. I’m also a photographer for babies, children and families, but I only accept photo sessions when my kids can be home with their dad. I edit my photos at night after the kids are in bed – all to help bring in extra income so I can continue to be a stay-at-home mom.



When I was editing photos at night after the kids were in bed, I walked into the kitchen and saw a note on the counter from my 5-year-old. In big crayon lettering it said, β€œI love for you!”


My heart turned into mush. What other job out there leaves you love notes? On any given day, I could show you 2-3 β€œI love you” drawings all for me!  I am the center of their entire world.


They may not say β€œthank you” every time I make dinner, wash clothes or play in the sandbox with them for hours. Their little hearts think of me when they think of love, and that is more than enough for me.
