An Early Valentine

When I returned tonight from a weekend trip, I saw that I had gotten a letter from my sweet 90-year old grandmother Ruth, who resides in North Carolina.

I opened it to find just the cutest-sweetest-cutest little Valentine's Day card you ever did see.

I think what made this lil' old-fashioned snail-mail experience even better is the fact that she wrote, "Buy yourself an ice cream cone" inside the card and included $20.

She knows ice cream ain't cheap like it used to be.

God bless grandparents.
