A Letter I’ll Never Send

Dear Grandma,

I miss you. I really miss you. I’ve seen cute frog things that remind me of you lately. When you were alive, I never saw very many, but now that you’re gone- I see them everywhere.

I wanted to cry when I came to your page in my address book. I was making up my Christmas card list. I wanted to surprise you with a gift card for a nice dinner out. Instead, I turned the page.

It hurt. I feel like there’s a part of me missing.

I want to call you and talk about the weather and how the changing seasons affect your plants. I want to get you a hand-blown glass plant mister. I found one online in the most beautiful shade of violet. It reminded me of the curtains you had up at the Park.

I got another cat. I think you’d like him. I know you wouldn’t admit it, but I think you would get along.

I miss you, and I love you.



One thought on “A Letter I’ll Never Send

  1. Me, too. Do often I see something and think, “I should tell this to Mom,” and then I remember she’s gone and I want to cry. There’s a hole in my heart.
