Write a letter to your kid tonight!

Posted by   + Show Post

I was going through my DH's stuff tonight and found these. I pray I find more. I sat down and wrote three letters to my girls tonight too. When they read these, their eyes lit up. You never know what tomorrow holds, so write your kids a letter and tell them you love them!

Thanks we need it! It's been a rough day. I cleaned his lockers out a work. All FIVE of them!! It was so sad!

Omg. ((((Hugs)))) :(

Your family has been in my prayers. 

guoting IAMmomtotrips: Yes, he was killed 19 days ago in New Orleans while training for the Ironman race. My BIL was also hit and has a broken spine (along with a slew of other injuries).

Here's a link to the story.

Quoting Allie_kat1: Did something happen to your DH? Either way that is very sweet that he wrote those for his girls.

I am so sorry for your families loss.  I'm so glad he did that and it is something I think we will start doing.

Oh my goodness. I'm so sorry. I'm sure your girls will treasure those letters, and I hope you find more. I can't imagine how rough things must be for you and your children right now :(

So sorry for your loss. I can't imagine what you are going through. This is a wonderful idea though. My son is only 2 but I think I will start writing letters to him. Thanks for the idea and the most positive thoughts are being sent your way. *hugs*

I'm so sorry for your loss :( These letters are something they will cherish for the rest of their lives. My DS has a letter from his father and I in his baby book that we wrote when he was born, but I haven't written one since. My SD lost her mother just 6 days before your husband passed and something like this would have been a huge comfort for her. I'm sure once we go through all of her belongings there will be something, she loved her kids more than anything. I think I'll take your advice though and sit down and write a letter to my DS, and a letter to my SD as well, letting them both know how much I love them and how important they are in my life. Thank you for sharing OP. These letters are beautiful.
