August 27, 2015 (Friday):
Happy first day or week of second grade this year! I miss you so much. I loved going to your birthday party and to the zoo and babysitting you this summer. I really liked the camel ride and the Sicilian Shetland pony! That handsome framed picture above was one great birthday present that sure came in handy for the purposes of this post/message.
By the way, remember to return your library book if possible. I feel confident you will not get into trouble. Afterall, it takes great courage and honesty, virtues that teachers and the Lord love, to admit when one is wrong or makes a mistake, and then does the next best thing.
I just wanted to make sure to let you know that I was thinking about yours and your cousin, Julian Worrell’s, first day of second (yours) and third grade (Julian‘s) this year.
I pray, hope, and have faith that you two will get to meet as someday. I know from not having any brothers or sisters that you and he are both missing out on a relationship. You should be playing and having fun together like Julian gets to do with his other cousins.
You asked me this summer if Julian‘s Daddy, Matthew James Worrell, just, “Matt,” of Tomball, Texas right outside of Houston, was your uncle and hoped that he was. Just keep praying that Julian’s daddy’s and his family’s heart is opened by the Lord.
I love you and miss you. I believe Julian does, too.
Julian attends Lakewood Elementary School in Tomball, Texas (Harris County). You are not forbidden, nor is any of the rest of our family from contacting him.
His daddy’s cell phone number, the only number i have for your cousin Julian, is, other than school, the only way to reach him for you guys. They do not answer the phone to me, but then again I am the only one who calls. Alternatively, you could always write to their last known address, or to mine where I can forward it to their last known address for you.
Mommy and Daddy have a telephone number where I (i) can be reached any time you want to talk, or even if you just had a bad day.
I also show your wonderful report cards to Grandma Suzi/Sue and George as well. But, then, since Mommy always made straight A’s and didn’t miss school, and also played soccer, we always knew you would be smart and talented, special, and athletic. “Take heart and have courage” (The Holy Bible, repeated throughout, all real versions).
Love always, unconditionally, no matter what,

P.S. I pray that Grandma Mary, Puppup, and Uncle Timmy, if not sleeping until Jesus returns for them to wake them up forever–“eternity”–that they can see you and are so proud of you and Mommy and Daddy.
XOXO, hugs, and a giant SMOOCH!
