What is a”special”?
Dear Mom and Dad…
Things here are excellent. One minor exception however. SNOW yes… more of the wonderful white stuff that these Mitten State dwellers seem to be pretty used to. See, for me… while it seems I was noticing that the white stuff had disappeared. AND YES, I was looking forward to warmer days… and hoping for a trip to the park…hmmm, maybe not this visit…. it’s just a little to “wintery” around here. The good news… IF SPRING SHOULD ARRIVE…I am ready for it… yep, we had a few nice days and Poppy brought me a “special”. Yep yep yep… I helped him put together my new and wonderful WAGON. All the campers hoped that since the snow had melted we would be able to go out and take walks… so we worked, and worked and worked… (seemingly FOREVER) on building my new “special”.
I am telling you this project was big.. I worked and worked with Poppy and Aunt Alyx to create a masterpiece.
From smaller pieces to huge pieces… and pieces I have no idea what to do with… we worked and worked.
My ‘special’ is coming along…. and I can hardly wait… but I don’t mind… not one bit because Poppy lets me help.
I CALL IT THE “GUILLIANNA SPECIAL” AND BOY IS IT MAGNIFICENT…. Look what we made mom and dad…
So after our project was complete there was only one thing to do… PUT ON OUR MITTEN STATE WEAR… AND GO FOR A WALK.
and a few other winter clothing articles… ( okay so it wasn’t that cold but you know NANA mom always said she was OP. No that does not stand for obsessive something… it stands for OVER PROTECTIVE)
Aunt Arri says I am a human burrito! But Nana says… I was “warm”.
Baby Elephant and I had a great walk…. and yes mom and dad.. while Nana did not pull out the old bike helmets, I do in fact have a seat belt on as does baby Elephant. Note the COOLER, attached. Hmmm, maybe today it would be considered a warmer…. it’s insulated. My juice stayed plenty cool in my cup holder, so… I think I will just use this for toy storage until a warmer day.
So when Nana went to put up these fantabulous photos… she was checking the web site as she always does as my “WEBSITE ADMINISTRATOR”. One thing she does, is keep an eye on who is keeping an eye on me… she almost didn’t get the pictures up… she was taken back…. (another Nana moment of sorts I guess) then Nana remembered something… she said today’s LOVE LETTER WOULD BE ABOUT MY ‘SPECIAL’ Not really being cute or funny though… she calls it “special” because it is so incredibly special. Not because it’s an awesome ride (which it totally is) … nope… but because putting it together with Poppy and Aunt Alyx was ‘special’. Because walking with the campers is “special”. Do you want to know what Nana saw when she was working on my web page? It was visits from JAPAN. Nana says, when someone logs onto my site, she knows where they are logging on from and what page they looked at. THIS DAY today, there were visitors on my site IN JAPAN! Visitors who LOGGED on to specifically a date in my love letters. The date the visited was THURSDAY APRIL 1RST 2010. Why? NOT TO SEE LITTLE MISS ADORABLE… AND WHILE HARD TO BELIEVE , I know – IT IS TRUE THEY WERE NOT SEACHING FOR CUTE BABY PHOTOS AND LOVE LETTERS… NO SOMETHING MORE….You see… often people find my site because they enter a phrase that matches something I have written to you and daddy. ON APRIL 1rst 2010 I TITLED MY LOVE LETTER to you and daddy in the land of sand as… ‘FINDING OUR STRENGTH’. Today someone in Japan found me… because they were looking on the internet and had typed…”finding our strength“. Nana, then and there had yet another reminder… that it is the moments like building my ‘special’… the moments you see in my face when I smile… that we all live for that make LIVING ‘SPECIAL’. It is in those SPECIAL moments that we all find our strength. It is those moments that define our lives as “special”. So here I am mom and dad… and these photos are what Nana says will give us all strength… it’s something to do with innocence… with love…. with pure moments of happiness and joy… that take us all to someplace “special”. While families all over the world suffer hardships… I HAD A JOB TODAY… as do we all every day….TO LEARN WHAT TRULY SPECIAL IS…. SO WE NEVER FORGET HOW LUCKY WE ALL REALLY ARE AND WE REMEMBER TO HOLD ON TO, AND TRULY ENJOY THE SIMPLE “SPECIALS” LIFE HAS TO OFFER.
Until next time, Mom and Dad… I am doing great… I am feeling very ‘special’… and I am truly happy. I hope you have a great day… and as always, I am your Little Miss Adorable, your sweet girl…
