People ask when he wrote the first love note. It was a first morning of rest after a many night journey, and the balcony reminded my feet they could be still for just a bit. The words on the lid of the coffee cup were just for me:
Welcome home, Scooby.
Yes, he calls me Scooby. And Bug. And I like them both.
I’ve taken photos of so many of the love notes. And I’ve saved every lid – there are more than 200 of them now. We’ve laughed about making the world’s largest shadowbox or perhaps turning them into a garland that goes on for days. But mostly, I keep them because they are like a map of our life. There are cheers and prayers and love songs and “we’ll get through this together.” We have. And we’ll continue.
Who needs a love note from you today? Who needs to know you’re happy that life includes them? Let me know what you’d say.

All the love notes make my heart smile. And I’m a big fan of “Become a Possibilitarian.” 🙂
