Letters that cross in the mail

Got another letter from Cousin Rose today (Saturday). She sounded much happier because the problem with her parathyroid can be treated with meds.

She wrote this in response to the postcard I sent her last weekend from Los Angeles, so her letter and the one I wrote her this past week crossed in the mail. This makes the letter she likely received from me today superfluous, because I'm asking questions about her health that she already answered.

Still, I'm glad I sent my most recent letter because I scrawled the sentence, "Keep me in the loop because I love you, you know." I should say that to her more often. She is a good, if exasperating, person who has always been there for me, for as long as I can remember.

  1. There is nothing, NOTHING, like a letter in the mail. Outdated or not, it is so very comforting to receive one. My niece wrote me a few times but has given it up for other things.

    A letter that sends that sort of an "I love you" can be picked up in the middle of the night and fallen asleep over.
