Dear Grandma ...



I didn't appreciate my Grandma until I became a mother myself. But today I appreciate her even more.

I have been totally bummed out because we haven't got a single Christmas card this year. Not one. But yesterday we finally got one and it was from her. And it was well worth the wait.

Now Grandma isn't a woman to tell you how she feels all the time. We're just not a huggy-kissy-touchy-feely kind of family. But she sends me this card that makes me day. She told me what a wonderful job I'm doing as a mother, how proud she is of me, etc. It really means a lot coming from a woman I respect so much.

And even if I don't get one other Christmas card this year I will be thrilled because what I did get meant so much.

I love that she sent you a card and told you how great you are doing as a mom and proud of you and stuff. That is awesome.
