I love these. I wish I had letters like this from my mother. :)


Just last night my 22 yo daughter, after seeing her 13 yo brother acting 13, apologized to me. My older daughter has done so as well, although I think at 26 she is now going through a stage of believing we should have raised her differently in some way, and she is just angry with her father for being the person he is. That may not resolve unless she has a kid of her own and realizes how hard choices are and maybe even why we made the ones we did.


I love these. Can I bottle them up, or maybe just tattoo some of them on my kids' foreheads?
