A Love Letter to Your Children

This morning I mentioned how some people have called the Bible, "God's love letter" to His children, and it spurred an idea.

What if you, as a parent, bought a spiral notebook, (one for each of your children,) and you wrote love letters to your children throughout their lives?

What if two or three times a year, you wrote to them and told them how much you loved them, how much they mean to you, how proud of them you are, your dreams and hopes for them, and maybe some of the life lessons they taught you?

And what if you did this every year between now and the time of their own child's first birthday?

And then, what if you gave that spiral notebook to them on their own child's first birthday, when they would really understand what your words mean?

My guess is, that would be something they would treasure and read for the rest of their lives... even after you're gone.

Anyhow... it was just a thought.
What do yo think?
