***I'm thrilled to be able to welcome Cheryl Therrien to Believe! today. She is a lovely lady with a wonderful book full of heartfelt messages.
My heartfelt thanks goes out to Mimi for welcoming to her blog today. She is a Triberr tribe mate and I am so glad to have made her acquaintance.
Today I would like to share with you a book that is near and dear to my heart, ‘Letters From Grandma: Before You Were Born’. I recently became a grandmother for the first time. This book was written in honor of that milestone in my life.
When my son first told me that I was going to be a grandmother I was thrilled. What happened next may surprise you. I began to think about what I wanted my grandchild to know and how I would relay that information if I was not around to do it personally. Sounds morbid, I know. But if you really think about it no one knows when their time is up. I could walk across the street and get hit by bus and there would be no tomorrow. The writer in me immediately thought of writing letters.
I began the task of writing letters that would convey the values I thought were important for my grandchild to understand. Choose your friends wisely. Believe in yourself. Take care of your health. The kind of values that are meaningful to everyone.
Writing these letters changed my life. I realize just how precious time is and not to take it for granted. My grandchild will have this book of letters to remind him of me and all the things I wanted him to know, most importantly how much he was and is loved.
Once again I would like to express my thanks to Mimi for allowing me to share my book with all of you.
