We love our children deeply, but do our children know how deep our love is for them? Why not create an “I love you” journal to let them know just how much you cherish them.
Here’s how to get started:
Get a lovely little journal, perhaps this adorable “Mommy Journal“, and each day write down one thing that you love about them. I also like to include a prayer of thanks for that special something.
Here are some examples of what I have written in my boys journals…
Pooh Bear, I love that you are curious and that you ask me a million questions. Thank you Lord for making Pooh Bear curious of the world you created for him.
Jack the Bear, I love your sparkling eyes that you bat at me. Thank you Father for giving Jack the Bear beautiful eyes that make me happy,
Baby Bear, I love how you caress my face as I nurse you. Thank you Jesus for making Baby Bear so cuddly and loving.
Try to do it as often as you can, even if that means just once a month. When you’ve filled the journal, wrap it in a pretty ribbon and give it to your little one to cherish for a lifetime.
