What does she REALLY think about me?

My youngest daughter, Izzi (often referred to as "Snip" in this blog) gave me a home-made card to open up while on the airplane as I was headed out west for a week-long business trip. It's a very sweet thing to get this kind of hand-crafted sentiment from such a cute little eleven-year-old girl. Per her instructions, I opened it up and read it while on the plane, cruising at an altitude of about 30,000 feet in the air.

For your enjoyment, I've scanned the envelope of the card along with the front and inside (the best part). I also added a picture of my little Izabella ballerina so you can appreciate the source...

In case you didn't catch that, it reads as follows:


I love you very much. I hope you are safe. I don't want you to live but I have no choice. I love you sooo much. You are the Best Dad in the world.

I Will Miss You.

Izabella
Contrary to her wishes, I survived the trip.

She's kinda stuck with you, isn't she? Gotta love it!

So sweet. The note warmed my heart and brought tears to my eyes.

I'd have a lab test any special cookies or muffins she bakes "just for daddy."

I should point out that Izzi thought "live" was the way to spell, "leave."

Despite her not meaning to write live, this was hilarious...I laughed so SO hard! THanks for posting it!

You soooo need to have Miss Sniz scrap that for you, just as you have it laid out. It will fit a 12x12 perfectly. This MUST be preserved.
