Back in June of 2011 my boys were 12 and 8, and I was a stressed-out mom trying to be a better parent. Yelling had become my default mode of communication when the kids were acting up, and I hated that I had let myself become that way. So I made a commitment to tell my kids something I loved about them each and every day of June. And I posted those words on Facebook and encouraged everyone to try something similar with their own children. I don’t know if anyone else ever completed the challenge, but I was glad that I was able to. And when June came around this year and I started seeing these posts come up in my Memories, I decided to remind my boys of these things that I loved about them. Each morning this month I have taken a screenshot of the memory and sent it to them so they could start their days knowing I still love them just as much if not more than I did when they were little.
Below is the post I made on the first day of the project, and what follows are the screenshots that I sent to Grant and Griffin each day this month. I’m considering doing another one of these projects now that they are grown. Let me know if you think I should give it a try!
