A Motherís Day Card from Grady
-- by Stephanie
Jessica sat down at her kitchen table and broke the seal on a pale purple envelope that had accompanied a large bouquet of pink lilies.† Although Grady was not her son, he never forgot to acknowledge the important place that she held in his life on Motherís Day.
Inside, she found a beautiful card in pastels that read,
There are never too many sunny days,
Perfect little moments,
Or reasons to wish a wonderful aunt like you
A happy Motherís Day.†
Written beneath the greeting was a short message from the man who she and Frank had taken in as a young boy, and who they had watched grow into a young man, a college graduate, and in later years, a man who she had proudly watched become a wonderful husband and a loving father.
Thank you for always believing in me and teaching me to believe in myself and to dream big.† (And thanks for opting for a new hairstyle instead of grounding me when I was learning to blow bubbles and my gum miraculously took flight, landing in your hair.)† Youíre the best.
PS Ė Little Frank is the new middle school bubble gum blowing champion and Donna has a new hairdo.
