I had a goodbye book that was passed around and people wrote me notes in it.
I think books like this are THE best kind of books - what a great gift your friends gave you.
One of the most recent best things that someone said to me was from my girls school teachers. It was the last day of school and I came home to find a beautiful vase of flowers on our front porch. The card was from both of my girls teachers and from the resource teachers saying how much they love me and appreciate all I do for my girls. I was blown away that they would take time out of their hectic schedules and send me flowers. I was so touched by their note that it sits on my dashboard in the car and whenever I'm feeling like a lousy Mom, I just read their words.
