a picture and a letter...

My grandma:


I found a Valentine letter she had written me years ago, just last week.

My girls brought home a shoebox from my parents basement, full of my girl-years:
Many key chains with my name
Rainbow key chains
A Dutch shoe key chain...(amazing how important key chains were when i didn't drive...now i scramble to find one at all)
Plus choir pins
Charm bracelets
And then a metal, flowery box.

I always get alittle excited wondering what sort of treasures
I hid away...and that's when I discovered the Valentines letter from Grandma.

Her handwriting was still very neat, so I could only assume it had to have been
before her macular degeneration had really set in.  She wrote a sweet poem, possibly created by her--just for me:)

Finding this letter set a smile in my heart--and does just writing about.
My grandma, Jean, passed away a few years ago.
She was a genuinely beautiful soul.
I miss her more than I ever knew you could...but she's here.
And I love when I find her hidden in special spots.
Much Love.
