Yesterday while looking for something, I found a letter from my Grandmother. It was written just 3 days before Mom passed. I could still read Grandmother's handwriting, years later it became difficult to read. I saved letters from her, in various places, some are collected together. This one was in an old Bible. The contents took me way back to 1978. Grandmother was apologizing for not recognizing my graduation from college. She said I was the first grandchild to graduate and hoped there would be many more. She said I went to teaching and time got away from her. She enclosed $10 and told me she couldn't pick out a gift. I wish I knew what I bought with that money.
Then she wrote about how she taught me to roll out pie dough. She said she never let the other girls do that. She said I was good at it and she wondered if I still like to make pies. I do, but I never remembered that part. It makes me cry now as I read it. I treasure her letters. It is funny she only lived 7 miles from me.
