Inspired by this post about starting a journal among siblings and this Christmas gift from my mom…
…I wrote this quick note to daughter on the first page of the journal:
I love you and I love journals and I love to write. You love me 🙂 and journals and writing too, so how about if we make this our journal?”
Then I placed it on her pillow, where it waited patiently to be found.
Sooner than expected, the journal was back on the kitchen counter, with a special bookmark.
I opened it as instructed, and found:
Which certainly put a smile on my face. (I didn’t realize I had a crazy face — lol).
What do the rest of the pages of this thick and inviting book hold for us? Significance? Nonsense? Worries? Inspiration? I’m not certain, but I’m looking forward to finding out.
