Happy Valentines Day

Valentine Card.  To My Mother.  From Kent, age 11, 1956

Inside of the card.

My mom called me yesterday and was asking about some old photos.  I looked through the envelope of photos that I had and I came across this Valentine.  It has a little note on the back side where my Grandma Faye has written "from Kent, age 11, 1956".  There is pencil writing inside the red, crayon heart on the front that says, "Mother".  And the faded line at the bottom says, "your son Kent"
The words are:
My Mother
Oh Mother Dear, I'm glad
to hear that I'm your Dear
You sew and sweep and work
all day and help the little ones
to pray.  Oh tell me when
Mothers play,
your son Kent

Are you kidding me! I want that! Let's (you) make a book of those things.

Makes me want to save all of the drawings, all of the cards, all of the pictures from my kids. Why don't I do that?
