dear nana & grandaddy. i have been thinking about you both so much lately i wanted to write you a letter. i think about you when i see an amazing sunset. & in moments when i allow myself to slow down & just breathe. i think about you when i look at madison & i wish so very much that you could hold her & giggle with her. nana i wish she could put little star stickers all over your face & then hide under the bed with you. grandaddy i wish you could take her fishing & camping. i wish you both could cook smores with her. watch her grow. encourage her to appreciate the small things. teach her to be still. teach her to love God. let her sleep on your big soft couch. drive her around in the rv. teach her to make chicken & dumplings. let her eat m&ms out of your silver bowl. go for walks in the park with her. i wish you could teach her all the things that you taught me & i hope that somehow your wisdom & your appreciation for life’s small miracles will pass onto her. i hope that she is able to slow down & just be still & be thankful. whenever i take a moment to do this for myself (which isn’t often enough…) but i think of you both. i hope you know that i do. & yesterday on your birthday nana, when the sunset over the broncos on the field, i thought of you both. i wished you were there with me. all that was missing were the mountains in the background. part of my heart will always be there with you in the mountains. i miss you both so very much. love, your little darlin
ironically enough the entry for blogtember seemed to just fit right in with my post for today. weird how things like that happen.
