Journals to Your Kids: A Lifetime Gift of Memories They’ll Treasure! by Karla DiNoto
Kids need to know what they mean to their parents, and and should have something to cherish after their parents are gone. I started writing each of my children a letter in a journal every month since they were born. I describe events that occurred that month:
- places we went
- people we visited
- how they made me feel
- how I feel about them
- something goofy or silly they did to make me giggle.
If some months pass by, I just write one letter for those few months and explain. God forbid something happens to me, they will have these letters for a lifetime and know exactly how I felt about them!
