Dear Louisiana in Tennessee~
Thank you for taking the time to tell me about yourself, your family. It is most enjoyable to hear from you again; your letters are full of joy, life; it is a pleasure reading them!
Sounds like your family is busy! And to think with the holidays fast approaching: I can't imagine that you're only going to get busier, once the grandchildren and oldest children out of state arrive for the turkey dinner! WOW! It must be total chaos around your house during the holidays!
I do have one question, though: where do you PUT everybody when they come home?? That I'd like to see! LOL
How is the weather there in Tennessee? Have the leaves changed, fallen off the trees? (Probably.) Here, they're still clinging to the trees, just starting to change; fall comes later 'roun' these parts. Still pretty warm, too, with temperatures in the seventies, sometimes in the eighties.
We may get some thunderstorms by Sunday afternoon, thanks to a strong upper low; we may even have the threat of severe weather. Hope not; I don't like bad storms!
We are getting ready to celebrate Korina's one-year anniversary with the family. Hard to believe that she's been with us for just about one year now; she has improved, grown so much! Such a beautiful little girl, with her shiny, black, shoulder-length hair, obsidian almond-shaped eyes, and round moon face! And not being on crutches or disabled has slowed her down; she is one busy little peanut!! She's absolutely amazing!!
Kaylie, Kenny, and Kris just adore her; they would die for her, they love her that much! Sometimes they are too loving; all Korina has to do is clonk 'em one on the head with her crutches, and they learn to back off! LOL She is a determined little girl with a can-do spirit!
Well, the kids are rising to start the day; will write again soon! Take care, and may God bless you always! Write back when you can; I really love reading your letters!
(((HUGS))) and much love, your new friend in Georgia, Mattie Denise Wright. :D
