Journals to Your Kids: A Lifetime Gift of Memories They’ll Treasure!

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!
