I sent a card for both granddaughters. I always send a ‘thinking of you’, ‘sending a hug’, or a ‘smile’ to the other one. As I haven’t seen them for 11 years, I am hoping that they will keep their cards, and items from me. I give my daughter money to buy gifts.
I visited England 25 times, in 24 years, one being the year Mum passed away, and the last time was for a little memorial service for Dad. Then hubby had a cerebral hemorrhage, and benign brain tumor. I had the chat with the specialist that he might not come through this.
How could I leave him on his own after such a talk? So you see why some days are hard for me. My beautiful granddaughter is on the high end of the spectrum, with severe learning disabilities, so we are both unable to get together. I waited for my daughter to email me this morning my time, so that I could phone, and chat to both girls, and her. I have asked for photos of today, so that I can get them printed up.
I love Florida, and my husband, but it’s hard when I miss out on seeing the family. They don’t Skype or Facetime.
