Why am I writing a blog??
Well… When I was a kid, I used to write a letter to my great grandmother regularly. I told her what I had been up to, what I was reading, and overall ‘how’s life’. I really looked forward to getting a letter back from her..in her beautiful handwriting…that nobody really does anymore.
When she passed away, and after I grew up and moved out of state…I continued the “tradition” if you will, and started writing to my grandmother (great grandma’s daughter). She and Grandpa always wrote back – in that very familiar handwriting. She talked about her flower gardens, the weather, the family that lived nearby. My grandmother and grandfather passed away last year, within a month of each other – true love – since then, I’ve been missing them – and the letter writing. I saved the last birthday card from her – handwritten note inside – in my calendar to remind me every birthday of her.
I miss the writing – the journaling – of our lives between us, so I decided that I can still write in the form of this blog before you. I think blogging will help get all the things in my mind down and out there….for who? Myself mostly, my mother and sister – and you silly!
Stay tuned for more “letters” from me…
Till then love…
