I don’t really have a nightstand. I have a bookcase next to my bed.
One night I went to bed and found two notes next to my alarm clock on the bookcase next to my bed. They were from my two oldest daughters. I’ll translate them into dad-speak:
“You are so awesome and cool! I bet you could slay a dragon with a toothpick!.”
It feels awesome when I get notes from my girls.
It got me to thinking, “If I get a charge like that from notes my girls write, how much would they like a note from their dad?”
Time to start writing.
