Don’t Be Shy, Just Let Your Feelings Roll On By….

My grandson is turning 1 soon and instead of gifts, his parents have requested that family and friends write a letter that he will read when he reaches his 18th birthday.

I began writing my letter wondering just what I would say.  I thought it might be difficult to write but as I began speaking to my grandson 17 years from now, the words just poured out.  It was much easier than I had imagined it would be.  The letter is still in draft form but looking at it today, there isn’t anything that I can see to change which is odd for me as I typically find many different ways to say what I’m thinking, and I tend to make frequent changes to my blog posts….but not with this letter.  I wondered, why did this letter flow so easily and was so easy to complete?  My response was more of a feeling – I love this child so much!  I don’t think it would have been easy to write a letter like this to someone I didn’t have such a strong emotion for.

I hope to live to see his face when he reads my letter.  I’m excited to learn what everyone else has written, too.  He’s a well-loved baby.

Oh, and of course I’m getting him a gift too.  After all, I AM his Grammy.

A bodie
