Hi Mom,

Well, it is Spring again. The Goldenrods and Bradford Pears are in full bloom. Your trees out front are blooming too. They are still small but just a blooming. You have been on my mind a lot these days so I thought I would write. You would be so proud of Shae, Mandi and Samantha. Shae is doing great and is a good mom. Phoenix is a joy. He is so adorable. Mandi will be graduating in a couple of months. I know you will be watching her walk a cross the stage. She is a beautiful young woman now. Still doesn't matter how old they are, they will always be my babies. Samantha is still picking your flowers. We always tell her you are watching her and she just grins and says, "I know". Daddy is doing good too. He pretty much does his own thing. I am glad too, I just want him to be happy. I just wanted to say hello and to let you know I haven't forgotten you, but of course you know that. I could never forget you. I see you everyday, in me, in Shae,Mandi and Phoenix. You will always live in our hearts. Keep singing to Phoenix and watching over us all. I will write again soon. I love you mom!

Hi Mom,
I just wanted to say thank you for watching over Shae and little Phoenix. We were worried for a little bit, but I never forgot that you were there to protect them both. Phoenix is beautiful. I know you are so proud.I hope you were whispering "Stewball" in his ear. Remember, you use to sing it to Shae and Mandi when they were babys? I don't know why that song, but they seemed to like it. They say that baby's can hear angels sing, so I know he can hear you. Sing to him all the time. He sure knows when I have him. He crys like Shae and Mandi did when you use to pick them up when they were babys. That's ok though, I know how much they love you and hopefully he will love me like that. He is just so sweet. Gosh, Mandi just turned 18 and is just beautiful. She is really doing good. I am really proud of her. Of course she still has he moments, but she is a gem. Samantha just turned 8 and is a card. She is just to smart for her own good, but she is special. She talks about you all the time. We all miss you mom and always will. I see so much of you in me as I get older and I cherish it with all my heart. Until next time.....I love you!!!!!!

THE CHRISTMAS MIRACLE

A man who was in his 40's had a uncle whom he hadn't seen since he was 4 years old. He loved his uncle very much. Supposedly his uncle defected to North Korea during the war, but he never believed this was true. The family went for 38 years not knowing if this uncle was dead or alive. Finally 2 years ago, they found out not only was he alive, but had a family and was coming to Japan under circumstances of it's own. This man traveled to Japan in July in hopes of seeing his uncle. These hopes were crushed under the red tape of politics. Then again, when it seemed the politics were over, he and his wife traveled back in December. Before he left, his 8 year old granddaughter told him,"Papaw, I wish that you get to see your uncle this time. That would make a good present, wouldn't it papaw?" He told her,"Yes baby, it sure would. It would be the best Christmas ever." They went to Japan only to find they would not be seeing him yet once again. One good thing did happen while they were there that had been a goal of theirs. This man did call his brother and sisters. This was the happy part of the trip. They returned home to prepare for the Christmas Holidays that were coming up at the end of the week. On Christmas eve, while his wife was cooking and he and his granddaughter were watching TV, the phone rang. His wife answered it, walked to the living room and handed it to her husband with a strange look on her face. The man took the phone and slowly said, "Hello". The next words out of his mouth were, "Hello Uncle Robert!!!" The man started weeping from happiness. His uncle, he had searched for and had traveled around the country for twice had finally called him after 40 years. As they spoke and both were crying, his 8 year old granddaughter looked up at her grandmother with tears in her eyes and said, "Mamaw, my wish came true! I did good didn't I mamaw?" Her grandmother replied, " Yes baby, you did good, you really did give papaw his Christmas wish. You did really good!" And so, on this Christmas Eve, the time for miracles and wishes to come true, the one little wish that a 8 year old had made for her grandfather, one he had waited for 40 years had come true.

Thanks Mom,
Merry Christmas to you too. That was the best present you could have given us all. I know you are with me and watching over us. Pretty soon, we will have a new grandson too. Please keep a watch over him and Shae during this time and let everything be ok. I love you mom.

Hey Sister-in-Law, today marks two years that you have been gone from us, but there isn't a day that I don't think of you. You are really missed by all. I sure miss talking to you on Sunday mornings like I used to. Please look after my brother as he is going thru a tough time with his sickness. Tell Daddy and Dave that I love them and all the other ones that have left us here. You are still my #1 sister-in-law.

Love you,
Big Linda
