Weekly Challenge: Week 10 relic

a note from Mom (this one I remember. I found it in my duffel bag once I got to girl scout camp)

I recently found this envelope labeled "notes from mom". I've saved quite a few. She used to hide notes in my duffel bag when I went away to camp. She used to leave me notes on the kitchen table before I left for school. She did that a lot when I was in high school; she'd leave me a note with lunch money or a piece of candy or a cute picture of dogs from the paper or just to tell me I didn't have to "creep sit" that night (you know who you are! xo).

Especially now that she's dead, I truly cherish all the little things she used to do. It was (and still is) one of the ways we connected with each other.
