Things We Did as KidsDecember 26, 2009
A few months ago I was visiting my mother and I noticed this picture frame on a bookshelf in her living room. I thought it odd that there was not a picture in the frame and was curious as to what one would frame instead of a picture. Well, you can imagine how surprised I was that the frame held a precious letter I had written to my grandparents when I was home from college. Apparently when my grandmother died, she still had this letter I had written her. My aunt who was charged with taking care of her possessions saved it and brought it out to AZ for my mom. My mom then framed it, and there it sits today.
It just goes to show that if there is a will, there is a way. I couldn’t find any paper in the house to write my letter on, so I used a paper towel. I still think this story would be better if I had used toilet paper, but oh well. I always wrote my grandparents when they were alive, no matter where I was or what I was doing. They were a big part of my life.
