I'm not sentimental. I don't like Hallmark cards, I don't collect figurines of any sort. I always forget my loved ones birthdays.
So I try and pay attention to real-life thoughtful people.
Doris' whole family is thoughtful.
They put up a Picasa album and every day they add a few photos of what my daughter has been up to with their family.
Balm for a mother's heart.
I had a friend's daughter from Switzerland stay with us for a month last summer and this idea never occurred to me.
Next time though... Next time we have an extended visitor...
I may not be thoughtful but I am a great mimic.
