The reason for my love letter to my kids? Because I believe the best love letters need to be hand written.
I always write love letters and thank you notes and postcards in my own handwriting, if I can.
I stash handwritten stuff around the place too. For my kids to find.
They don't really care.
They might care, one day.
I have handwritten stuff from my Dad that appears. Appears when I need it. An old letter that he wrote to me when I first left home to go to uni will drop out of a book. I know every word - it is etched on my memory; but my heart swells as I stop and sit, and read that letter again.
I do not expect that my kids will have the need to find my handwriting for a great many many years. But when they do; when they need a link, a thread, a golden thread to their Mum, to me, they will discover my words, in my hand. I hope it brings them some calm, and some peace in their hearts.

Do you love your handwriting? What do you still hand write these days?
