An unexpected Christmas Card
This past week we received this letter in a Christmas card from a Dorothy Brown from Lorena, Texas:
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Porter,
My name is Dorothy Brown---I am a 69 year old great grandmother who lives in Lorena, Texas. Over the years, as a parent, I have wondered how other adults perceived my children---if they remembered their manners--if they were respectful---things like that. That is why I am writing. I have met your daughter and she is a ray of sunshine! She and her co-worker have been in my home several times. They've had dinner with me once. And hopefully will again. She has been loving and very kind. I also see an inner strength in her that she may not recognize yet. I enjoy both the girls whenever they come and will do my best to help if she ever needs it. I do have a confession--I have nicknamed your daughter Sweet Pea. Thank you for sharing her with me. Dorothy Brown.
