SWEET TEA

Letter, "just for me".


There it was.
Right in the middle of all the junk mail -
a letter to me!


It was from our youngest Granddoll,
8 yr. old, Grace.


It was a good, juicy, newsy, type letter.
I was instructed NOT to put it on the fridge.
It contained information of a private matter
concerning school and her teacher.
It also contained the lyrics to an
original song.


It ALSO contained this beautiful piece of original
art work.  I was told I COULD display this
on the fridge.  I'm so thankful I got the OK
to show this as it brightens my heart each
time I see it.

Can you remember the last time
you got a personal letter?
Can you remember the last time
you wrote a personal letter?
I send the occassional card
with a short note written inside,
but I've not actually written a
personal letter
in fo-evah!

One more thing I need to add
to my list of things I'm gonna
try to do this year.

Thank you for the sweet comments yesterday
in response to my toothache.
I am taking meds, and am feeling
sooooooo much better today.
48 hrs of pain sure makes one
appreciate a sunny, pain-free day.
Thanks again!

Aww...how sweet! A treasure!

Glad your tooth is feeling better. I can't stand dental issues or even going to a dentist!

I have another blog now. Please email me if you want the link.

You know, I have been thinking about that lately...kinda' have had it in the back of my head...I want to write some letters.....like my grandma did to me and I did to her....in the "olden" days.

I think I will. There are so many friends and family so far away. I think I will start with my adult children whom I talk to at least once a day but who might enjoy a letter from Mom.

I'm gonna'!

I love that your granddaughter sent you a letter :) That's so sweet and the heart is beautiful, it would brighten anyone's day! I love getting letters but I'm afraid I haven't written one in ages myself, I might just have to write one soon :) Thanks for sharing and for putting that thought in my mind. xx

How fun to get a real snail mail letter! I just received one that was a combo thank you for the Christmas gifts from our 3 Grandkiddos who live in Mich. I haven't written one in forever either. I bet those Grands would love a letter from us, huh. I'm glad your tooth is feeling better. Have a good rest of the week!

I love-love getting mail. My sister will never own a computer, so we write to each other every 2-3 days. I call her my therapist and I am hers.:):)
I was in the dentist chair yesterday. I am glad my dr. could not take my blood pressure. My dentist has never hurt me, but I just get all worked up, cause I am a big chicken. Happy that you are doing better. Smiles, Susie

Oh my goodness, Grace is a cutie pie! And what a nice surprise to get a letter instead of bills. I can't remember the last time I got a letter. I do know when I last wrote one - last summer when my kids were at camp. They never wrote back. :-((

Glad you're feeling better!

I can remember when I was Grace's age and writing letters to my grandmother when she was spending several weeks in NY with my uncle. Oh how I missed her! But the good thing to come of her being away was that I learned that I loved writing letters. :) Like you, I haven't written a letter in a very long time. At least not by hand. And I just don't think that typing out an email counts.

What a great surprise from such a cute girl. I got a couple of Ney Years cards today with a short note in each one, but I can't remember the last time I got an actual letter.....I think they are becoming a lost art.

I just love it when I get a little something in the mail from the grandkiddies. They're so adorable and their sweet innocence just melts me.

I actually received a note in the mail today from a blogger friend.
There always has been and always will be something special about a handwritten letter!

Great post!

Bobbi said...

That's the best mail ever!! I love the heart. What a beautiful and thoughtful grand doll you have!

Joyce said...

How precious! I still write letters on occasion. I think there are few things that brighten a day more than getting a piece of personal happy mail.

Richters Victory said...

I love snail mail. That letter from your granddaughter was amazing! Family is grand!

Nezzy said...

What a sweetheart to send her lovely Gramma a letter. (My baby she wrote me a letter!)
I do love to write letters I think it is becoming a lost art. I've enjoyed teaching my daughter how important a good letter can be.
Hugs and glad you're feeling better!

Love it! I think there is nothing better than a handwritten letter.

I love my grandson mail so I know how thrilled you were to get it. And, like you, that mail always goes on the frig, so your grand doll knows that too. Then I take a picture of it and email or text it to them. We grandmothers are a great audience and we make wonderful penpals too.

Jill of All Trades said...

I love, love, LOVE letter writing, getting and receiving. I write at least 10 letters a year and still correspond with my pen pal from high school, hmmm, 40 years now. Since the invention of the Internet and Facebook though the letter writing has slowed down, very sad. I love that your granddaughter is writing, you will cherish forever!
