Some of you may remember that I write letters to my grandchildren. Yep, love letters. And, nope, they can’t read them. But, they are here in my computer and in their parents’, just to be safe. Hopefully, one day they’ll read them and learn about all the great things we did together and also gain historic information about their lives. You know, the first time they ate cereal, walked, talked, etc., etc.
But, what a wonderful reversal I had this week! Ryan dictated a love letter to me. It was an e-mail from her mom. I’m not sure how it came to be but reading … I love you in my heart. You are the best Grammy in the whole world … is, well, the greatest gift I could get! In fact, I blew it up on the computer and put a photo of Ryan and me beneath it, printed it out and it’s hanging on my office door. Okay, we all know I’m sentimental.
Of course, this is a wordy way to suggest you encourage your kids to write (dictate) love letters to the special people in their lives … especially with Valentine’s Day only a month away.
