Valentine’s Day Letters to My Son & Daughter


Earlier this week, in preparation for the snow, I picked up Valentine’s Day cards for my husband and kids. Over the last day or so, I thought about the valentines that my kids typically make me and how I treasure their words and expressions. It occurred to me that I had never done the same for them. So, in the middle of Snowmaggedon 2014, I decided to make CJ and KC valentines. My valentines aren’t super snazzy or amazingly decorated, but they do capture my heart.


A letter to my son:

The day you were born, I fell in love–my heart expanding just a little more to hold dear you and your dad. Through you I’ve learned more about space and rocks than I ever imagined. Over the past 12 years I have held you in my arms, cheered you at games and watched you sleep- thanking God for every minute.  I’ve watched you start your journey into becoming a man and have been amazed by your generosity and insight.  You are becoming more and more like your father every day, and I couldn’t be more proud of you. My love for you is bigger than all the stars in the sky.

A letter to my daughter:

Years ago when I found out I was having a girl, I pictured all the fun girly things we would do and how wonderful it would be to have a little girl. But the reality has been far better than anything I could have imagined. Your beauty and spirit have grown with you over these last 8 years. I’ve watched and clapped for you at games and recitals, snuggled with you heart-to-heart and kissed your sleeping cheek-each night thanking God for blessing me with you.  I love the little girl that you’ve turned into and the bright light and joy you bring into the lives of those you touch.  I’m so proud of you my little bunny. My love for you is bigger than the ocean.


Wishing you all happiness and love today!
