Simple things are free the price of Love

The simplest of things for children cost nothing and evoke a lifetime of memories. You don't have to buy them expensive toys for them to love you. The simplest thing to do is to write them a note and perhaps leave it in their school pack lunch or if they are school dinners leave it on their pillow to find when they get home from school.

I witnessed a girl at school had been given a handwritten note(in her pack lunch)  by her dad and it said " I shall be thinking of you when I am at work eating my dinner'

A handwritten note shows love.

The joy it bought to their child was beautiful to behold I only wish the parent could have seen this. I encouraged the child to write a note for her dad. So in this fast paced world its the simplest of things that make us smile and help us know we are loved. And the same I hope can be said of you or I when our child or children give us a handwritten note.


  1. So true! I'm love social networking but nothing beats a handwritten note. What a lovely dad to do that!

  2. Awwww that is such a sweet story. I have loads of hand written notes from hubby from 20 odd yrs ago...they are so lovely (and funny) to read back on. Cant beat proper handwriting x

  4. My mum saved all my little notes to her. Thankfully I also saved hers to me and love looking back over them. Great little post. x

  5. My mum did this, silly cartoons too, and I should do it MORE, esp now she is learning to read. You've inspired a post for next week!

  6. That is lovely. I think I may leave notes at home for my older ones and will remember this when my 4 year old starts school.

  7. What a lovely post - thanks for joining in with the Britmums green roundup. I frequently leave notes in my daughter's lunchbox (she's now 11, but it seems they are still 'cool' - I think she hides them though!)
