Another example emerged this week when Kim Kardashian West revealed that she is writing a letter to her children each year containing memories from that period.
I write my kids a letter each year reflecting on the year we had together & fun memories. I'll give the letters to them when they turn 21 ❤️— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) February 22, 2017
The tradition has been passed down from her father who wrote Kim a letter at an important time in her life. Kim read the letter again on the eve of what would have been her father's birthday, clearly the letter means a great deal.
I found a 3 page letter my dad wrote me right after high school about life and it's so special to have. I re-read it last night ❤️— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) February 22, 2017
The sentimental value and connection provided by a letter from a parent is a personal treasure. There is also something particularly poignant about Kim Kardashian West writing letters when so much of her, and her family's life are followed and recorded. It will be a wonderful gift to provide a true snapshot to thoughts, feelings and memories from their mother.
