Last week I filed and filed and filed letters. Do you know what a treat it is to open letter after letter and see your grandparents handwriting? To touch the pages they touched? To hear their sweet and enduring love for each other? It was completely joyful for me.
I am soooooo happy to say that I filed every single letter for the 5 1/2 years they wrote to each other! Ten Hollinger boxes filled with letters.
(Of course, I still have the letters from the 1960s when my Grandpa was in graduate school. But we won’t even think about those yet.)
As soon as I finish scanning Aunt Vera’s scrapbook – these letters are next on deck for scanning. I think they deserve their own blog. Maybe this fall. 😉
These four boxes were mostly full on Wednesday when I started. They look so beautiful empty, I might just leave them on my table for a day to enjoy their tender place in my heart.
Happy Monday, I hope you conquer a special genealogy project sometime this year – it is an incredible feeling!
