Dear Raelin,

Writing to you is your Daddy’s fault, but am thankful he suggested it!  I had gone to bed but couldn’t sleep and it is getting really late, but you were on my mind and I had to get up and write to you.  Your Daddy said he would save my letters to you and someday when you are old enough, he would read them to you so you could get to know your Grandma Suzie.  I sure wish I could be with you now and hold you as you get sleepy, perhaps read a story or sing a little song, but just feel your warm little body close in my arms.  How I enjoyed cuddling all my babies.  Even though I had five wonderful little boys, each son’s birth was like the first baby I ever had and I had so much pleasure out of caring for each of them.  I have often wondered how little boys and girls might differ in personalities but never had the opportunity to find out.  Have thought that when I get to Heaven someday, I would ask my heavenly Father how come I never had a daughter, but by then it probably won’t matter what with seeing all the wonderful other joys in  Heaven.

Raelin, I sure home you had a wonderful birthday. Sorry this is late, but I cannot get on the computer until evenings as i have to keep the phone line open so your granddad can get work calls. Sure wish I could be around you and watch you as you grow and experience new things. I know your mommy and daddy enjoy seeing you progress in everything you learn new to do. In my mind’s eye, I can imagine you as you learn walking, talking, then running, and even when you learn to say “no” to mommy and daddy. [click to continue…]
