Since he was little, Mark has collected colorful leaves for me. Many of them are pressed between the pages of the books we were reading when he gave them to me. I was a little disappointed I would not be getting any this year.
However, Mark was pressing leaves he found while walking around campus. He often put them in his shirts button hole till he got to his dorm so he would not lose them.
This weekend we were at Cedarville for home coming. He presented me with a folder. With it was one essay he was especially proud of (and it was very good!) and leaves he had saved for me.
