Modeling

A few mornings ago I noticed Branson writing some sort of note.
We were headed out the door, and he dawdled with his pen and paper while I ushered the other kids to the car.
I was quite curious as to what he was working on, but decided not to ask any questions. I assumed it was lyrics to another song, as he tends to leave behind a trail of papers scribbled with with rhyming lyrics of his newest tune.
But the mystery note appeared a few hours later. Opening the fridge at lunchtime, here's what I found:


A couple of years ago Corbin left me a thoughtful note taped to the inside of our refrigerator wall, thanking me for taking care of him and our family. At the bottom Corbin wrote, "You are a treasure."
Bran's note, written two years later, and taped right next to Corbin's, says,
"Mom - I love you. You are my awesome prize."

Ummm, made my day - my week - perhaps my month.
Grateful for a husband who models well. And for an 8-year-old boy who soaks it up!
