A Most Cherished Gift

March 11, 2011 at 3:38 pm Leave a comment

While looking through an old suitcase of photos at my mom’s house last summer, I came across a letter my uncle wrote to me on my first birthday 7/8/1965.  He was deployed at the time and was going to miss my first birthday party.  It was incredibly touching to read as an adult.  It is amazing to me that he took the time to write it given his situation.  Interesting isn’t it, that all of the toys I was given that day are gone now but this letter remains and is the most cherished gift from that day.

My brother and his wife have brought back this tradition to our family and I am so glad they have.  Now I write letters to my niece and nephew (I am behind in my writing sorry you guys!) on their birthdays relaying information about myself, my brother and my parents.  Thanks to the Kolcraft – Baby Matter Blog for doing a blog http://www.kolcraft.com/parent-center/blog/about sharing your family tree with kids. http://kids.familytreemagazine.com/kids/interview.asp This site gives great question to give to grand parents that they can then include as part of their gifts.
