A Little Girl's Plea to Her Grandma

My children LOVE to visit their Grandma Patti in the U.S border town where I spent 32 or my 40 years on earth. When I told them that they would be spending two days with her before their trip to the worldwide conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, they were so excited. However, once they remembered that she would have to spend her days teaching her fourth grade class across town, they were crest-fallen, disappointed that they would only be able to spend time with her in the afternoons and evenings.

As a way of displaying her emotions and recording a plea to her grandmother, the 8-year-old girl wrote the following note and stuck it to the outside of Grandma's bedroom door....


Unfortunately, Grandma didn't notice this note until after she returned home from school, as it had been placed on the outside of her door, rather than the inside. I'll bet, though, that it will still be stuck to her door when we return from Mexico for our next visit, and the visit after that, and the visit after that.

I can't wait to be a grandma. Thanks for listening. :)

Hi Jen :-} the migrane is down quite a bit, so I can visit again :-}

I tell you, this being a grandma stuff totally rocks!!!!! My grand daughter turned 10 months old yesterday. While I was talking to her daddy on their speaker phone, I said Hi to her. He told me that she had waved. I said some more things to her and suddenly he started laughing and then told her "Okay, okay, slow down or you'll disconnect that arm". He said that all of a sudden he'd seen it register on her face who's voice she was hearing and she'd started franticlly waving for all she was worth while grinning hugely. Aww what that did to my heart!!!
