March 8, 1994

When I was home a few weeks ago, I looked through my baby book and spotted a notecard from my Grandma Phyllis, on the occasion of my birth:


August 1984
Dear M + J, I can't express my joy at the gift of a grandchild.  This contribution to your homelife is just to punctuate your leisure times - if you have any.  You already have my enduring love.  P.M.

Phyllis died 19 years ago today, and though our time on earth intersected for less than a decade, her memory and legacy (and today, her words) impact me still today.  I think this card would make a truly lovely framed addition to my bedroom someday.  She was such a remarkable woman, and I am so fortunate to have both memories and mementos of her.
