I found this postcard recently while sifting through some old papers. My Grandma used to send me things like this for the holidays and also just to say hello. I grew up in FL but spent every summer with Gram in NY, I was her little helper. When I went away to college, Gram sent me a blue toolkit, complete with a blue hammer and tape measure. We still use it around the house today, thirteen years later. After she passed away, we found a stack of letters that I had sent her over the years. Gram kept every single correspondence and now I have them here with me.
My Grandma passed away on November 3rd, 1999. I spend a lot of time missing her and wishing my kids could have gotten to know her. I still have all of her her handwritten recipes that we used to bake together. We keep her pictures around so that they will grow up knowing who Gram was and how special she was. Today when I’m at my parent’s house stuffing my face with turkey, I’ll be thinking about my Gram. We all will be.
Have a happy and safe holiday everybody. For you Canadians, happy Thursday.
