Grace and I have decided to start a special “journal” between the two of us. It will be a special journal that we can write in whenever we want to, but we are writing to the other person. It can be a simple note to say “I love you.” Or if there is something she feels she needs to talk about, she can write to me in there. If there is a question she has, and is more comfortable writing it down, then it goes in the journal.
I like this idea because I myself am a much better communicator in writing than in person. I can always express myself better in a letter. As Grace approaches the years where she may have lots of questions, concerns, feelings going on, I thought it would be a good way to keep the lines of communication open between us.
This morning I wrote the first entry. I just wrote, “Good Morning Grace. Welcome to our journal and I love you.” I left it on top of her Bible, so that when she woke up and went to read her Bible, she would see the note. I hope it is the beginning of a very special book for us…
