The girls received journals for Christmas. They've been drawing and writing and using up their stamp pads. Then one night after reading a little in my book, I decided to take the author's lead, and I wrote to them. I wrote words they could read. I chose a stamp and stamped a picture next to the note I'd written.
Bright eyes and beaming smiles.
It was such a simple connection, and they were touched. Their little hearts were happy. They wrote me back, and I knew we had a tradition, a mother-daughter bonding outlet. We pass their journals back and forth with notes and drawings. Who would've thought something so simple could be such a blessing to all of us!?
