She’d snip them and mail them to me in an envelope from Florida. Funny pieces written by Erma Bombeck, comics, recipes, local news, that sorta stuff. Things she had been reading that she thought I might find interesting.
Because as she read the newspaper and found things that were interesting,
she thought of me.
Now as I read the newspaper each morning, I cut the interesting pieces and paste them into text messages to send to my own girls. Stories about the world of fashion or social media, local news, that sorta stuff.
Because as I am reading things that are interesting,
I think of them.
