Messages in my House.

She leaves them everywhere.

 She keeps notes and draws pictures...

 and sometimes I can't decipher what she's thinking.

Other times, I can read the emotion in her heart:
what she is thinking and feeling.

Sometimes they make me laugh and her perspective might be a little one-sided.

 But I like to know what she's thinking,
so I can know where I may have failed her
and can try harder to see things with respect to her,
as a little person.

And then there is the moment when I see something from last year,
along with an added portion from this year,
and I can see where her education may need some improvement,
 but also the happy realization that in many ways, she has improved,
and is listening,...

and learning;

what is working for her
what is not.

And then I am brought back to my pending reality
 (This picture was taken a few days back, of course:
it gets updated first thing when her feet touch the bedroom floor).

Which reminds me,
 I better go get those Christmas cards done.

But I'm thankful and delight in
the bits of paper
that let me see
some pieces of her heart.
