I don’t know if you know, but Olivia was our sweet surprise! We weren’t supposed to have any more children. But God gave her to us anyway. We adore all our children – and there were lots of tears shed and prayers prayed for each of them before they were given to us. But that little cutie came without prayers and tears beforehand – God just gave her to us for free!
Often on the Lord’s Day, if it is just our family here, we read together, or nap, or talk. Sometimes, the little girls like to pull out my iPad and type notes to me in the Notes section. Sometimes I don’t even see them for a while!
But I thought you might enjoy this little tidbit. Love notes between Olivia and me, one quiet Sunday afternoon.
Dear mother you are very kind to me every morning since I was a tiny baby, now I shall give you something in return. Would you like a back scratch or a foot massage? Or would you even like a..... Cookie? I would like a cookie. that would taste so good, don't you think? I mean I can't wait till grandma and grandpa both get here, I will be as polite as I can.hey did you see that? I just made a AS sandwich around the polite! That is just..... So funny!!!!
With all of my heart,
Olivia c. Orr
My dearest darling girl!
For me nothing is sweeter than to be with you. Sitting here feeling your little snuggly warm self next to me, and hearing the soft rising and falling of your breathing makes me very happy indeed. I feel as though there could not be anything more lovely this minute than having you as my wee little girl! I love you very much!
Your loving mother,
With all her heart!
Oh my mother you are sweet inside.when I feel your breath on me I know that yours is truly more beautiful than mine, when I hear your voice it is like a beautiful song in my heart, a very very pretty song. And when daddy snuggles you, I feel wonderful seeing the both of you together, you and daddy will always be better than I am in Christianity. And I will always hold your image in my heart.
Sweet and lovely daughter, your words are just like honey to me! They taste sweet and golden in my mouth and they make a cozy puddle in my soul. When I hold them up before my eyes, I see the delicate strands and tendrils of your love for me and they make beautiful music in my heart. I love you, little Olivia!
And then later in the same day..
how much times have People forgotten your name? I'd really like to know, it makes me want to punch anyone who did. People like that are very mean, i don't like them very much. But I really can't wait to eat the popcorn that you are going to make. I can already smell it. Don't you think popcorn tastes and smells so good. I think so.... When are you going to make popcorn? I forgot.
I really don't know how many times people have forgotten my name. I think it might be a good thing. You're awfully young and pretty to be punching people. Let's not, OK? :)
I will make popcorn when Daddy finishes the chapter. Yes I do think it tastes and smells good. Very good. Very, very good. And hot. I like it. I'm glad you do, too.
...what do you mean by "let's not, ok?"I literally have no idea what you mean. It makes no since. I really hope that you had a very nice sleep. I hope that I didn't annoy you during it. Mommy you are the most beautiful woman in the world, and you are very nice the way you are. I love seeing your face every morning, it is so beautiful. I will love you as long as I live, so that means I will always love you.
I pray for you today, that you will share love notes with your children, and your husband.
For they are sweet, precious gifts to you – given by a Loving Father Who loves you even more!! And He shares His own Love Notes with you, too.
Go, my friend! Read them today!
