The week before Christmas …
Dear Guillianna and Elijah –
Christmas Eve is a week away! So exciting to imagine you two on a Christmas morning with new traditions and new special things to look forward to. I hope it is all magic and fun for all of you –
We do wish we could see a Christmas concert or play from school. I have to imagine you’ve done something along those lines. You both used to love the performing for a crowd !
This is the week where Nana and Poppy will plan a holiday dinner for the family who does make it into town, or can be there. You can be sure that I will serve some Guguberry pie and some kind of mini grilled cheese for Elijah !
Today Nana received a present from a very old friend. This friend is ow a graduate of college but when I babysat/tutored him he was about 9. He was from China ad loved coming to Nana ‘s too. He always loved the pets at our house ! He is now an artist. He contacted me recently when Aunt Alyx died as she had tutored his sister. I had not seen him for very long, yet they came to the funeral. Since then he was working on an art piece. He specializes in drawings and specifically animals. The picture he drew is on today’s love letter It’s your pal Griffey! The photo he drew it from is below :
It is nice to think that no matter how much time passes people can always find a way to stay connected. Sometimes when you need a reminder of how a child’s heart can be so full of love that they don’t forget …. you get the reminder you need. This one time little boy just showed me his love for animals that began with Griff, is a driving force as a passion- he brought Poppy and I hope tonight that one day all you felt all you learned all that was true and real will grow into a beautiful and amazing part of you both – just like our little friend Ben has grown into and focused all things positive from his youth into something beautiful and creative. I hope or day when you both read these love letters you will have a warmth inside that literally speaks to you “this is love and gratitude, and it feels so good “.
We love you both to the moon and back,
forever and for always
❤️Nana and Poppy❤️🍪
