College Boy just left for Spring Semester after his Winter break.
I couldn’t let him leave without some pocket notes.
I quickly scribbled some random notes to put into his belongings.
I put notes in his new white socks. College boy always goes back to school with a dozen new white socks. Take a good look at them…they will never be this white again. Next time I see him, his socks will be dingy white. Not sure how that happens. Maybe because he forgets to wash white clothes seperate from dark clothes?!!!
Any place I could find to quickly stuff a note, I stuffed one. Shoes, socks, sleeping bags, lids to deoderant, backpacks, books…..
I want to be sure that College Boy knows he is loved and that he can do anything!
I know he will be going to job fairs, interviews and industry events this Spring so I want him to find notes of encouragement. It gives me the pleasure of being there without being there. It is like I get to give him that hug and words of encouragement before he goes out the door.
I know he appreciates the words of encouragment and deep down he misses the “Mom good luck hug”. So this is my way of being involved in his special moments.
I love my College Boy….
