My mom recently sent me this photocopy with the following note:

"Dear Jen, Thought you'd appreciate a copy of a picture of Rusty (that was) in a billfold I had in Junior High. When I found it, it was like someone gave me a big hug. It just warmed my heart. Pet photography really is important - after all, they're members of the family. Love, Mom"

I love that she thought to send me encouragement in this sweet way and I also love that she carried a photo of her dog around in her billfold when she was a kid.
