Love Notes to Lighten Their Load
Yesterday I tried to pick up my son’s book bag and couldn’t lift it, because it was so heavy!
I found 4 textbooks, 2 big binders, and some old candy wrappers inside the backpack. I wondered, “How can Andrew carry this heavy load all day?” It dawned on me that high school had increased his physical burden but also other burdens as well. So I’ve decided to help lighten his load this year, I am going to put little notes in is book bag. I can just picture him smiling about my crazy drawings, or some fun phrases that we just say between the two of us or even like a prayer or Bible promise.
Notes tell our kids we’re thinking about them, and that they’re not alone. A funny stick figure can bring laughter to their stressful day. Love notes can actually lighten their loads and lift their hearts!
