71 Toes: 7 motherhood ideas I love - Mother's Day Letters

With Mother's day coming this weekend, I thought idea #4 taken from 71 Toes: 7 motherhood ideas I love blog was fantastic.  Mothers, this week leading up to Mother's Day take some time to write a letter to each of your children and perhaps even your husband as an expression of your love.
Idea #4 Mother's Day Letters 
Being the fanatic about record keeping that I am I love to write letters to my kids. I want them to have a record of how much I adore every little thing they do. When Max and Elle were little I was great at it and I'd write to them all the time. But then it got harder and harder to set aside time to do it. So a few years ago I decided I'd ask for a couple hours alone in my room each Mother's Day so I could write a special love note to each of my kids. I love knowing that I have those compiled for them. I want them to forever remember how much I love them at every stage and what I've noticed about them each year.
For more ways you can cherish the moments you've been given as a mother visit 71 Toes: 7 motherhood ideas I love:

Proverbs 6:20-23
20  My son, keep your father's commandment,
 and forsake not your mother's teaching.
21  Bind them on your heart always;
 tie them around your neck.
22  When you walk, they will lead you;
 when you lie down, they will watch over you;
and when you awake, they will talk with you.
23 For the commandment is a lamp and the teaching a light,
and the reproofs of discipline are the way of life,
