Grateful Hearts

One of the hopes I have for my children is they will cultivate attitudes of appreciation. After a season of giving and receiving, sitting down to express our genuine thanks is truly important.

I have been an avid pen pal, journal keeper, postcard sender, and mail art fan for years. So, to sit with my son and share such a meaningful piece of who I am, and watch him grow in his own craft is such a gift.

The rest of our family would say our kitchen writing session gave them a gift as well.

Their naps gave us just the space we needed to talk and write slowly without interruption.

A lovely way to spend the afternoon.
