The Christmas Letter I didn’t get to send

Merry Christmas Grandma-

I can’t believe you have been gone for a couple months already.  It seems like it just happened but so much of life has gone on it seems like a lifetime since I have gotten to talk to you.  I have so much to tell you grandma. Some nights I just talk to you, I wonder if you hear that, I hope so.

It is Christmas week and we are all at mom’s house. It will be so different this year not having our Christmas on the 26th.  The day will seem very empty this year.  I just thought I would write out what I would love to tell you. I bought the almond gift this year, can’t let traditions die.

First off your boldness with people has rubbed off on me.  I wonder if you are holding my hand because I have done a few things since you were gone that I would have never done before.  First did you know I spoke at your funeral.  I know shy me got up in front of all your loved ones and talked about how you were one of the most amazing people I had ever met.  I got through it and felt a presence with me and I know it was you.   Last month I gave my testimony at our Thanksgiving service at church. Again something I would had never entertained before.  I believe you are with me and that comforts me.

The kids are doing so good MorMor.  Greta and Henry both had parts in the Church Christmas program this year.  They did such a good job. Greta has such a heart for the Lord and it shows so much.  It makes my heart so happy.  Henry earned his orange belt in taekwondo , and he is doing math in his head.  Such a smart little boy, your prince Henry.

I am knitting and writing in the evenings.  I need to find something to do that takes up the time from us talking.  I miss our nights so much grandma.  I miss our talks, I miss our cry’s.  I need to talk to you about so many things.  I would love to talk recipes again. I would love to hear the newest love triangles of the nurses at the home.  I want to ask questions.  I want to ask you about grandpa’s hearing loss, I want to know how it started, I want to know just more about it.

Grandma I need to end this in saying that I know you are around us and at work.  How you got your 4-H papers to Greta, and how you reconnected me and a woman you introduced in my life at Greta’s age.  I know you had a hand in all of this and I thank you.

I will miss you this Christmas but I hope you have a fabulous one with Grandpa in Heaven.  He has waited so many years for this Christmas and I hope you will be together and looking down on your family.

Love your grand-daughter
