their parents, and their grandparents. We shared laughter, presents, and food. I have been feeling really sad and lonely before I went but spending time with them was a happy event. Connection with others is so important. And I love those girls. I’m grateful they all love me.
My very favorite present from them were the sweet, happy drawings from Leanne and Karen, and seeing their happiness with what I gave them. And the little bracelet that Leanne made me herself, and three little colored pencils that she bought herself at her school for me! I also loved the pink plaid flannel pajamas that they gave me. I’ve never had real pajamas as an adult! So this will be fun.
I wish you love, laughter, and connection with others always.
