Last week, I was back home in Israel for my niece’s wedding.
I woke up on a Saturday morning to enjoy coffee time with my mom. My dad went to the synagogue as he does every Saturday.
When my mom and I were in the living room, I saw her frantically looking for something. I asked her, what she was looking for? She told me “I cannot find your dad’s love note”. I asked her, what does she mean? She explained that every Saturday morning, while she is still in bed, before he leaves to the synagogue, he write her a note where he express his love for her, his appreciation for their marriage, for the children and grand-children, and for the blessed life that they have built together.
I was super surprised and quite emotionally touched. I honestly had no idea that my father was such a romantic man. I asked mom how long has he been writing those notes to her, and she said for most of their marriage.
They are married 58 years.
When I got home I told Clayton that I am going to adopt the idea of a love note every Saturday morning.
Express your love to the people in your life, in a note on a Saturday morning, or in any other way you find appropriate!
Much love to you all,
