I love writing my kids letters but often life gets busy and I just forget. A friend told me that instead of scrapbooking she opened email accounts for each of her children, even as babies, and sends them letters. Isn’t that the greatest idea ever? I know my oldest son told me that he read the letters Jeff and I wrote him every day to get through high school. It means more than we think. I think birthday letters are the best, but I want to do it more.
I mentioned this before, but a friend’s grandfather I met and loved recently passed away and one of the special things he was known for was his notes to his children and grandchildren. It was such a gift to get one of these notes, and it made them all feel loved and incredibly special. My own mother is great at sending a little card or note.
If you have any neat traditions or ways to remember to do this, could you leave them in the comments?
