There are many ideas for passing down legacies and making memories. I think a blessing book is one of the more positive and encouraging things you can do, not only for yourself, but also for your children.
When you keep a blessing book for yourself, it is up to you how often you want to write in it. You can do it nightly, monthly or whenever you find the time. I would encourage you to write dates in there as well. Write down things you are thankful for and things that make you happy.
It’s ok if you end up repeating things along the line. If your children are old enough, encourage them to keep a blessing book too. They can do it with you, on their own, or you can even make it a chore for them once in awhile so they get in the habit of writing.
I bet they will realize after time, how much they really have to be thankful for.
If your children aren’t interested in keeping a blessing book, you can still treasure yours and pass it down to them when they are parents themselves. I think at that point, they will find your entries give them precious memories and lessons as well.
