There are many things that I see other moms doing and think,
"Gosh, if only I had the time, sanity and patience
to do that...it would be awesome!"
But alas, with three kids 4 and under,
I hardly have time to think about doing those things.
I was sitting in my MOPS group when an older mentor mom
told us how every year at her child's birthday,
she would write them a letter in a birthday card that praised them,
gave them memories and encouraged them.
She would tell them each their positive unique attributes
and incorporate it into a loving birthday card.
She would then keep these cards and when they moved out of the house,
she gave them all to each of her children.
I thought, once a year??? per child????
That's 3 times a year, I think I can handle that... so this year,
I am starting a new tradition, to write a 'hand-written' heart-felt letter
to each of my children on their birthdays.
And this post will hopefully hold me accountable...
