I'm linking up with Dazee again this week, I know you're all excited :)

Dear Grandma, 

I hope you know how much I love you. I'm sad that you're not going to be around anymore, but I'm happy that you won't be in pain and so lonely anymore. I'm grateful for the memories I have of you. The times I spent the weekend at your house with my cousins, eating ice cream in your bed, watching movies, dressing up in your clothes, walking down to the general store and buying candy, making our soda explode all over the place by shaking it up too much...I remember always feeling loved and very welcomed when I came to your house. I remember all of your little quirks that made us all laugh and roll our eyes a little. Like how to properly load a dishwasher, how to properly make a bed, how to drink water and not make it look like we're swallowing (which, by the way, is really not possible). I remember having this insane fear when it was time for bed. There was this little white stuffed dog in the room across the hall that for some reason always always always scared me. The older I got, the busier my parents got, the fewer weekends I spent at your house. Sometimes I regret that. Sometimes I regret that I wasn't the type of person to just drive down and visit my grandparents. I'm grateful I have the memories I do have, I just wish that I could have created more. But I know you understand, and I just need to get over my regrets. I just wanted you to know that I love you and I'm happy that you're happy.

Dear Sister,

I'm terribly sorry for everything you're going through. I wish there was something I could do to help you...I know you wanted to have a baby, I know you've wanted it for a very long time. And I truly believe that one day you will have many of them. But I am truly sorry. I know your heart must be hurting...I can't even imagine what you're going through. Know that I love you and I will do whatever I can to help you through this.

Dear Boyfriend,

I'm sorry that I'm being so ornery tonight...I would give you a reason, but I'm not sure it's true. I'll try to not be ornery tomorrow. Deal?

Dear Wii,

Could you please stop being dumb? Could you please just read the discs as I put them in? I would certainly appreciate it.

Dear Boyfriend part 2, 

We're going to bed early tonight...okay? I'm tired...

Dear Slippers,

Thank you for keeping my feet warm

Dear Hoody, 

Thank you for keeping the rest of me warm

Dear Boyfriend part 3, 

Do you want to play hooky tomorrow and run away? Somewhere?

Dear Bed,

You look extremely comfortable right now...

Dear Blogging friends, 

I hope you had a good day.

I am sorry to hear about your grandma. I spent a ton of time with mine and when they are gone, it never seems like enough.

Have you tried blowing out your Wii (AKA Old school Nintendo.)

I love you for linking up. I am so sorry to hear about your sister and grandma. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

I loved that you want to play hooky and run away somewhere with boyfriend.

Thank you for reminding me to spend even more time with grandma. We visit at least once a week and call but I know now that grandpa is gone it's not enough. I will be better.
I tried and tried and tried for 13 years to have a baby. Just when we thought we couldn't go on Mike appeared. I hope it happens for you sister too.
I love your dear....letters. Really I do.
Have a great evening. Get over the grumps and enjoy your boyfriend.
Take care and God Bless!!

I'm so sad for you but very glad you have good memories. My grandma has been gone for 13 years and I still miss her a lot! So where's your hooky place of choice?
