I have a few days before….
Dear Guillianna and Elijah:
Veterans Day – usually a time to think of all the people who have served in any of the armed forces – but I seriously do that every day ❤️ – have always been a person who has great appreciation for the sacrifices made by men and women serving their country – and I am sure you can remember how we always lived this philosophy. We have said how mom and dad are doing important work, and time and time again we told you how it is a very nice feeling to serve. Do you remember when we got uniforms so you could see how it felt to help others – at the children’s leukemia Halloween event. Hope you all had a good day and we’re able to feel the gratitude of others for all mom and dad have done.
I have a few days left to sometjing for Poppy’s birthday. I am trying to make him a little surprise gift! He loved the hand-made gifts/pictures and surprises you two would for do for either a birthday or even for no reason at all. So since its so hard being so far away, Nana is going to think up a plan to make sure he feels loved by you two and all the others in his life that care about him – for his special day –
It is actually in November 20 but we are going to celebrate on the weekend and we can always hope that means some extra fun for you two also – since there is not school on Saturdays! I will not ever stop hoping your family will be able to make a visit to the Mitten for any reason be it a birthday, holiday, or just any day. To see the way you always smile when you see us! Pure Joy!
Everyone here is doing okay , Uncle David is in the hospital and that is not the best but he needed some surgery and will have another procedure in a few days to hopefully help him more ! He, Aunt Kris and the boys are also working at staying close with each other despite the fact that they live far apart too. The fact is family around him is helpful. We would love for you to know how loved you are every single day and want you to enjoy every minute on this adventure called life. We will love you always and forever,
to the moon and back
❤️Nana and Poppy❤️🍪
