Notes to My Daughter Box

As Hannahlily was growing up I gave her lots of notes. Some of them are kept in this box. They were always in my handwritting.

This is a set of quote picture tags. I would put one in her lunch that she took to work. Picture: Henry with his typical worried look. The quote: "Worrying does not empty tomorrow of it's trouble, it empties today of it's strength."
Picture: Hannahlily and Brent on a ride at Dollywood. Quote: "55% of what you communicate is nonverbal."

Picture: Hannahlily and I on a trip to St. Louis. Quote: "Does any human being ever realize life while they live it, every minute?" Emily (she was dead) said it in Thorton Wilder's play Our Town.

Picture: Hannahlily and Henry. Quote: "Always remember to be happy because you never know who's falling in love with your smile."

I bought this larger box today for her notes.

Shelly is another word for Special! She is an extraordinary woman with a very unique ability to Bless everyone she comes in contact with - on a daily basis. I am in constant awe of her talent and her unselfish and willing attitude. She has touched my life with her wonderful friendship and constant love and prayers. Thank you Shelly for living your life as God directs. You are a faithful servant and I love you, Cupcake
