Happy Valentine's Day! I am participating in a blog circle with a great group of moms who are writing letters to their children. Because we are in February, these are our love letters to them. (I had wanted to take some outdoor pictures of the kids for Valentine's but because it has just been too cold around here lately, we did a fun photo booth day inside instead.) Here are our pictures and my letter to my babies.
To my loves:
I have often wondered what I would want to tell you guys about love. I know I don't ever want to see you with a broken heart - even though I know it will one day happen. I know when it does happen my heart will break with you.
What I want you to know about love is how wonderful it is! I want your lives to be full of it - from me, your dad, your friends, your whole family, and eventually from the one you marry. I want the love in your life to be just like the love talked about in the Bible.
"And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love." (1 Corinthians 13:13)
When the time comes for you to find the person you will marry, I hope you find someone who treasures you, loves you and respects you and that you would do the same for them. I hope you settle for absolutely nothing less. You deserve nothing less.
You two along with your dad are some of the biggest blessings in my life. I wish I could protect you from anything bad or anything hurtful that may ever come your way. I know I can't but I know you guys will persevere and be absolutely amazing, loving people throughout your lives. I am so proud of you guys and always will be.
I will ALWAYS love you with all of my heart!
