“Good morning, grandma,” Haley’s chipper voice mixed with the bang of the screen door whose hinges could never get enough oil.
“Hello dear,” Nancy replied instinctively. She had become her grandmother without even trying to do so.
“It’s beautiful today.”
Nancy looked at the wonder in Haley’s eyes. She had looked at life that way once and she missed it very badly.
“What do you have there?”
“Oh, thank you cards for my birthday gifts.”
Haley sat down on the porch and laid out everything she needed. She was such a very focused young woman.
“Can’t you do that with e-mail these days?”
Haley looked up and replied, “Yeah, I could, but it doesn’t feel right.”
“What do you mean?”
“I don’t know. It just doesn’t seem very personal. I like to use pen and paper.”
Nancy turned away to hide her tears. She did know. Maybe there was some hope for the next generation. Haley was pouring personal sentiment into each thank you. She was pouring her heart and soul out with each stroke and that had to mean something.
“Are you okay, grandma?” Haley asked after finishing her first card and carefully placing it in the envelope.
“Never been better,” Nancy replied with a smile.
Haley smiled and went back to work; a very focused young woman.
