Guest Post by Cheryl Therrien
I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to Wendy for allowing me to guest post on her blog. She continues to be both generous and an inspiration to so many.
I recently became a grandmother for the first time. It is a label I am happy to display proudly. When I first found out I was going to be a grandmother I was elated. My son was very wise and waited many years until the time was right for him to become a father.
I am not one of those mothers who kept asking when I was going to see grandchildren. I have never placed any pressure on my son to reproduce so I could wear the grandmother label. Children would come when my son was ready for them.
After experiencing those first feelings of elation I began thinking about what I wanted to say to my first grandchild. I wanted him to know just how loved and wanted he was/is. It was then that the idea for a series of letters came to mind.
‘Letters From Grandma: Before You Were Born’
These letters express beyond a shadow of a doubt just how loved my grandchild is. He can read them as a teenager and gain assurance that is he loved unconditionally. He will never have to wonder whether or not he was wanted. These letters clearly demonstrate all the preparation and planning that was done with loving care. His birth was one of the most anticipated events in both his parents and his grandparent’s lives.
I have no doubt that this collection of letters will become a treasured family heirloom.
