Yes, today is Mother’s Day. Your mommy was the greatest mommy in the whole wide world!
Your mommy was a wonderful person, everyone that knew her loved her. But more than anything else, she loved you! It was like, she was always a charming, happy, warm, giving, just plain nice person. But when she had you, it was like, she was complete. It’s hard to explain. But then again, so was your mommy!
Love you so much,
You know, I was just thinking. When you look at pictures of your mommy, you see she usually isn’t smiling. Please don’t think she was sad or anything. She didn’t like showing her teeth whenever someone took a picture. I mean, her teeth weren’t really that messed up, it was just because I didn’t have enough money to get her braces. So when you see your mommy in pictures, just know it wasn’t her fault if she wasn’t smiling. It was my fault.
Well, every four years we have three things that happen. It’s called a Leap Year, because February has an extra day. There’s a presidential election. And there’s the Summer Olympics.
Remember, four years ago, when the world fell in love with gymnast Gabby Douglas?
It’s too early to tell who the world will fall in love with this time around. But the 2008 Olympics will always be my favorite, because that’s the only one I shared with you and your mommy.
Hi, my darling granddaughter.
It was eight years ago when I called your mommy and asked her to let you stay up late and watch Barack Obama give his acceptance speech. A lot has happened in eight years.
Well, tonight I watched Hillary Clinton give her acceptance speech. I couldn’t help but think about your mommy. I couldn’t help but think of you.
I miss your mommy every single day. I miss you every single day.
All my love,
I think about you and I think about your mom all the time.
Here’s another picture of your cousin, Silvianna Ray
Isn’t she beautiful!
Love you always and forever,
Today is your grandma’s birthday! That’s your mommy’s mom.
I can still hear your mom, when she was really little, in her high voice, yelling, “happy birthday, mommy!”
And your grandma blowing out the candles on her ice cream cake!
