Sunday Scribblings: Dear Past Me, Dear Future Me

Dear Past Me:

Be a nicer person.
Have more confidence in yourself.
Be sweet to your parents. They adore you.

He will come.



Dear Future Me:

Have lots of land where the grandkids can run around.
Give your grown-up kids surprise gifts of money, even if they seem to have plenty.
Offer to take your grandkids for the weekend.
Re-read.
Travel.
Grow flowers.
Keep telling your kids that you think they are wonderful.
Laugh with them.
Don't be sad looking through old photo albums.

Kiss him every day.
Never forget the source of all good gifts.
Never stop saying thank you.
