I want to share this idea with you, many if not all of you reading this are parents . I hope will appreciate this and maybe even do it yourselves. This year on Christmas Eve I am going to take a break from playing Santa , sit by the Christmas tree and write a letter to each of my children.

I am going to write them letters about how blessed I am to have them, how frustrated they make me, and how much fun I have with them even at 6am most days. I want to give them a personal history from me. I know they won't appreciate these letters now but in 15 years maybe they will, and I know they will when they are my age.  I will file them away, and when they are old enough to appreciate them, whenever that is I will hand them years and years of letters.

Merry Christmas!
