For eleven years, since 2003, I’ve written individual letters to my sons and husband. Often the letters chronicled what happened throughout the past year along with some words of encouragement and love from me to each of them. I don’t really know how much these letters mean to my family, especially my sons. I think that someday they will mean a lot to them. So for now, I make that my yearly commitment.
Much of my time is devoted to writing basically “letters” to you, my Messy Marriage readers. And I would do that today, if it weren’t for all the many obligations and responsibilities that have come with cancer. Because of that, I don’t want to put the need to write to you above my family. So today, I’m going to push aside this blog and write to them.
If there’s a “take-away” for you, my reader, it would be to let your family members know how much you love and value them. I don’t know what that will look like for you. Some of you may never be “writers” so letters are off your list! But there’s something that you can and should do to remind your family and spouse that you love them deeply!
What is something you can and want to do to remind your spouse and children that you love them?
