Leave a Legacy in a Letter by kathrynegly

Parents and Grandparents,

Today I read about a man who writes a letter to his kids each year on their birthdays. His children are still young so he is saving the letters until they get older and will appreciate them.

How special would it be for you to write letters to your children. You may also consider keeping a journal where you occasionally write thoughts to them (just write the positive thoughts, please:)).

Just before my grandmother passed away, I had the opportunity to spend several hours with her where she told me story after story about her life, about my parents, and about my life as a young child. I was captivated. I would love to have letters from her about those experiences and what she learned from them.
Think about how amazing it would be to give your children (or grandchildren) letters one day about what they taught you about yourself, about life, or about God.

The next time you are at the grocery store, pick up a notepad; leave it on your nightstand and write in it every once in a while. It might be just as special for you one day as it will be for your child.
