10. Write at least 2 letters to each child, per year - UPDATE

New: Well, I'm still in the running to being able to check this one off. I just finished my 2nd letter to all my girls tonight. It brings tears to my eyes to be able to tell them what they are like at this age, what kind of a mom I am, but wish I was. To let them know how I pray for them. It's a sweet time and I encourage all my mom (and dad) friends to write at least one letter to your kids!

Okay, so I didn't use pen and paper. I typed out a letter to each of my girls. It's only the 1st one this year, so I can't check it off. But, I can tell you that this one was good for my soul.

I live such an every day life (all you stay at home moms out there know what I mean). Just about the only thing I do for myself on a daily basis is check Facebook. It's easy for me to complain about the difficult task of  raising children. These letters that I just finished have brought me back. Once again, I realize how blessed I am.

  1. That is such a great idea. I need to do that -- I kind of think of some of my blog posts as letters to the kids, but it's really not the same.
