… Your Nanny (grandma as you liked to call her!) loves you and misses you very much.
In a lot of ways you were like her little boy.
When you were 8 months old your dad and I started on staff at the STL org and we were literally gone almost all the time. We were allowed to have a 2 hour dinner for “family time” (30 mins of which we spent driving) and we got 1 day off a week. On our day off we had to do laundry, grocery shopping, cleaning and cooking for the week – so that day off was gone really fast – we actually had very little time left over. You spent most of your time with Nanny when you were little. I missed you a lot, but at least I could see you sleeping in your bed every night when I came home.
You’re a young man now, but in all honesty you’re still so very young at age 20. I’m completely sure you’ll look back in 10-15 years and realize how young you really were.
Bless your heart, you feel completely grown up now – and in so many ways you are – however when you look back with the wisdom you’ll soon have, I wonder if you’ll be happy with these life-altering decisions you have made.
Jeremy, your precious Nanny is getting a lot older now. She will soon be 71-years old.
How will you ever get these years back, Jeremy?
