Every day recently I seem to be reminded of how fleeting time is and how important it is to make wise use of it. This also leads me to examine what memories and lasting images I am leaving for my boys. I want them to feel like they had a chance to know me and have some tangible reminders of who “Mommy” is if I were ever to be taken from them unexpectedly.
So last night we had family pictures made. We majorly splurged but we decided with everything currently going on we wanted to make sure they were great. It was a super fun experience and I think we also made a fun memory at the same time.
I also have a journal for each of them in which I try to write to them at least twice a year if not more often. Of course it should be more often but at least this way they have my handwriting and my thoughts toward just them, individually that they can look back on. They are so young but I hope someday these thoughts and prayers that I am recording will be precious to them.
So tonight I am going to make another entry, no matter how tired I am. Because it has been too long since I have written in them. I am glad that I don’t number my days, but while I have this one I want to make good use of it.
How about you? Any special ways you are making tangible memories for your little ones?
