Tuesday's Treasures

I'm a little late getting this posted , I was off quilting at the church but really wanted to share this very special treasure with you all , I guess you are wondering what is so special about a piece of wood . Well it would be about 23-24 years ago my youngest son gave this chunk of wood to me , he was helping his Dad pile the wood for our wood burning cookstove we had at the time and he came across this piece that is shaped like a heart and he wrote these words on it "I love you Mom " To this day everytime I look at that I have to smile . It has moved with us many a time and I usually have it right beside the door so every day when I sweep I have to move it and I always think of Chad . I should have taken a side view , it is about six inches high , anyway I never did have the heart to burn it :-) Chad was about nine or ten at the time . If you wish to see some other Tuesday Treasures just head on over to Clare's who is kind enough to host Tuesdays Treasures and see what others are sharing this week .

  1. That is just the sweetest! It brought tears to my eyes...no kidding. I'm a sap that way.

    It reminds me of a simple piece of paper that my son wrote to me one Sunday while sitting in church. He was seven years old and he wrote 'I love you Mom'. I carry it in my Bible as a bookmark and I will NEVER throw it away.

    That is truly a treasure! Thank you for sharing it with us saps!!
