I do not know WHY I did not think of this before.
My children LOVE to draw. And while every drawing is special, I simply cannot keep every one of them. Some of them, of course are kept for sentimental reasons. And some are drawn for others (thank God for extended family) :)
But what about all the other drawings "just for you Momma"?!?!
Well, I have started keeping them in a box for the children to pick out from to send to shut-ins, take to nursing homes, and to send to sick people in the hospitals. It blesses me to see the pictures being sent to those who can appreciate them, as they are precious to me. And it blesses my children to be able to bless others with their drawings.
