Fingerprints Friday

In reading my blog roll updates this morning, I looked in on Beki, of Pampering Beki. She's started a feature called Fingerprints of God Friday. The gist is to find those things in your Friday that make us grateful and to truly see and enjoy His handiwork. Beki extends an invitation to us all to join via a nifty new linking feature on her blog, to post our Fingerprint Findings on our blogs, share photos of same, and then enjoy! How could I not sign up for this?

My Fingerprints of God Friday photos today are love notes. Since before we were married, my husband, Chris, has been leaving me love notes. More literally, love post-it notes. We keep slightly different schedules (read: he's an early bird and I am not) so he's up before it's light out and covets his alone time to browse the Internet, read, catch up on Facebook, and enjoy some online gaming with his compadres. Often, before I have rolled out of bed, he drops a smooch on me, and is off to work.

More often than not, after the rolling out of bed is executed, I head for our office to warm up my computer for the day, and find a note from my hubby on top of said computer. I got in the habit of tucking them away...in case someday they are here but he is not. Yes, that does seem a bit macabre but I tend to lean to the melancholy, friends. This morning, I dug into my little box of notes and found I had far more than I remembered receiving.


I cherish my little love notes, and find them even sweeter in the reading months down the road. This one is from today...



Guess who has accused her husband of not being romantic enough at times? What a fool am I to speak in such haste! This is one tradition I would surely miss if it were to end. Today it is my offering to share with you a Fingerprint of God in my life.

Looking forward to more sharing, and reading about and viewing of your Fingerprints as well!

Awesome post. My hubby and I do that once in awhile just to remind each other how much we truly care about each other.

wildly romantic but I can understand how you could say that, because we are harsh at times on those we trust completely. We trust they will understand when we fail or misremember.

cherish those fingerprints - I bet one day they would make a beautiful book for your children.

How sweet! I love handwritten notes! My husband is very good at things like that, and it's easy to take for granted! Thanks for sharing!
Have a wonderful new year!

This is very very sweet and romantic. I have a box (overflowing) with love notes, although I admit now that we've been married for 8 years, I haven't put one in there for awhile!
