Remembering Thinkerbell and the gang!
Dear Guillianna and Elijah –
So yesterday I reassembled most of the fairy garden given to Guillianna by Coach Becky and Mr Brian. It’s been something I didn’t do for quite a while, since we moved. It occurred to me that even though it was so sad that wasn’t taken with you when you left, it had so so many fun memories. I simply felt I should reassemble it and hope one day in a perfect world you can see the image that may help you to remember Thinkerbell, Jasmine, Musilina, Beanie, and all the rest of them. To think of mini marshmallows and the magical happiness. I have been accused of lying to Guillianna, and making you both “dependent” upon DreamStarters. I believe in childhood dreams and fantasies, in reading and building stories to help little ones sleep. Or bring excitement to the morning stories that would unfold when we would expound upon DreamStarters. All fun things and joyful memories! I only wish there were a way for me to understand or to believe that any of what happened, how you lived, and your experiences while living in the Mitten were in any way bad or harmful to either of you. Poppy and Nana will always remember the fun, the imaginations that flourished, the love that was present, the memories that make up a very happy and healthy childhood. It is our hope that you will too. The embellishment or distortion of your memories is such a risky road to take when the real sentiments felt by grown people have nothing to do with the life shared with you two for so long. What a shame it is for your memories to be tainted with anything negative if the real issues have nothing at all to do with your time spent in the Mitten.
The real message and memories of your time in the Mitten is “LOVE ❤️“, true pure love and we hope nothing will ever change that memory from your hearts. As children whose love for Nana and Poppy is buried deeply, whose love can no longer be shown or shared, please know it’s okay and we understand, we want for you to be happy and have the love of your mom and dad and hope for one day all of your family to see that love is good and okay, that it is a gift to share love for each other – and you should always know that we DO know how much you loved all of the time we spent. We are sure it has been so much more difficult than words could say to keep inside all you feel and know to be true – to leave behind all you knew all you did and most everything that was yours – but you are brave, strong, loving, great children who will have an entire world of dreams and a lifetime to explore them.
We will always treasure our memories . From memories of Elijah and his Nana loves me bear ! To Guillianna and the Nana loves me shirt she could not part with ….
We hope you’ll one day know you’re loved to the moon and back …. Nana and Poppy will always love you –
forever and for always
❤️Nana and Poppy❤️🍪
