Day 173: Sidewalk Message

March 20, 2012

For my 173rd act of love, I wrote “I love you” with sidewalk chalk on the walkway outside our apartment. This morning, the kids were rowdy as you got them ready to head out the door, though you did your best to keep them under control. When you were ready to go, you opened the front door and saw your love note on the ground, then turned and smiled at me and thanked me as you dragged our crazy kids to the car. I hope my note brings you joy in the midst of a hectic day.
