Mommy and Daughter Journal



My mom passed away when I was 18 years old.  To this day when I look through some of her notes in her Bible I get a mix of emotions.  I love seeing her hand writing, I love hearing her heart and her prayers, but sometimes it makes for a roller coaster of emotions.  I will admit it has been a long time since I have looked through those notes but after I saw an idea to create a journal to go back and forth between my daughter and myself I jumped on the idea and started right away.  

My daughter may only be 5 and can't write but she can draw and make sounds and before I know it she will be sounding words out.  

The idea for me is to be a constant reminder that I love her, that JESUS loves her, to share my heart and prayers with her so she can go back and reread when ever she has a bad day.  

If I had something like this even after 10 years of my mom's passing it would be amazing!!  :)  

I also think that creating a journal at such a young age with her right now will help keep the communication door open.  There might be hard topics she is not comfortable talking about but having a safe journal will be awesome.  :) 

I already love the one picture she has created for me and I know she will continue to share what ever might be on her little heart.  

I encourage you to start a journal with your son or daughter.  Once my lil man is older I plan on making another with him.  :)
