Another wish …
Dear Guillianna and Elijah-
How many ways can a Nana and Poppy say they love you ? How many different words can we send to make you feel our love and our wishes for happiness? The hope that you are loving new adventures is sincere. The hope that you’re all doing well and adjusting is constant. Things in the Mitten have been icy and cold in terms of weather and all your family here is doing well.
Uncle David continues to work hard every day to fight his own medical battle and he is a true warrior. All of your great grandparents are doing well and surely send love and kisses. Poppy and I keep as busy as can be and have settled in to our home a bit more, admittedly it has been very difficult. This past year has brought us so much change for us as well . The time both of us spend sending these love letters is important to us both and it is so full of happy memories that it brings our love and gratitude to the forefront each day or when ever we have a chance to write.
Gratitude for time spent together and the warmth felt when remembering the things you both did, said, and how each day had it’s own special memory. Rides to school and pick up each day, with so many tales of the day, dream starters and all of the ‘specials’ we did together, the little nuances of life that we have not ever taken for granted seem to bring us smiles as we write and read this journal of love.
We look forward to a day where we can see each other again, share in your new adventures, and see those smiles! Until we do we continue to hold on to the knowledge that your foundation here in the Mitten was strong enough and full of love that it will help you all the days of your lives. The education was such a great start and you were both such amazing students, friends, and actually lived each day full of compassion, caring, and commitment to giving your best. These things don’t disappear either – they are foundational and will be useful in all you do in life. We love you both to the moon and back,
forever and for always
❤️Nana and Poppy❤️🍪
