Dearest Jennie- finding the words
(part of my writing project- finding the workds December 28, 1921 Dearest Jen,
Ruth turned four today. I wish you could have been here to see her. She is absolutely precious. I often tell her stories about you. She reminds me so much of you, but she definitely has Ed's eyes. I wish you were here. Mother came for the birthday cake. We all miss you so much.
I am trying not be be so stern with your little ones. I am afraid it is embedded in my nature. Leo is great with them both- so loving.
I haven't heard from Ed, but he sent Ruthie daffodils.
I often feel your presence near the children especially at night. I feel like you come to them in their dreams.
I am doing so hard to be a good mom to them.
xo, baby sister, Marie
