A New Thanksgiving Tradition
This year, I decided to start writing letters to the girls the night before Thanksgiving (to give to them ON Thanksgiving) telling them how much I love them and why I am so thankful for them. Of course we tell them we love them all the time, but I wanted them to have a keepsake or record each year of it to look back on and to know that I am proud of them. I think these were the first letters I've written by hand in a LONG time and it was funny how tired my hand got. This age of computers and typing everything has made me forget about writing out those long letters. Anyhow, I thought it was a nice tradition to start. I hope they think so too. Especially when they look back on it. And, as with all of the traditions I start, I hope these are things that they do with/for their children when they have a family of their own.
