Letters I Probably Should Not Send…Right?

March 11, 2009

Dear Brother-in-Law,

If I see you come near my husband (your brother) and say anything hurtful to him again, I will take you out.

Grace and Peace,

Dear Jon-David,

Seeing you in so much pain about losing Grandpa makes this so hard for me. I want to scream, Son. I am so, so sorry.

I love you,

Dear Person-I-Don’t-Know,

Please stop sending me political petitions. I am not in a good mood lately and I don’t agree with anything you are sending me. Plus, I find them racist and distasteful.

Dear Target,

Hi! I am wondering if I could reopen my old credit card account? My information is as follows…

Jessica Hopper

Dear Mother-in-Law,

I know you are grieving. I can’t imagine that pain. But please come visit us over Spring Break anyway, Mom. The kids need you right now. Why don’t you see that? Why are you ignoring them? I don’t want them to lose both you and Dad.


Dear Casserole Crusaders from School,

I really appreciate you providing us dinners during this difficult time – they have been so amazing.

I am wondering if there is any possibility of continuing this arrangement for the next few years? I could really get used to not having to cook.

Under His Wing,
Mrs. Hopper, Junior High Teacher

Dear Disney World,

Hello. I seem to have misplaced the recent flier you sent to me offering “Kids Dine and Stay Free” through August with the special pin number. Could you please send it again? My husband and I have recently decided to cancel our ten-year anniversary trip due to a death in the family. We are considering a small trip instead with our kids. They can’t be away from us right now.

Thanks for your help!

Mom in North Carolina

    send the letter to disney and hope for the best. rewrite the letter to your m-i-l to leave out the guilt-inspiring questions and send that, too. She needs her family, too.

    When Seth was dying in the hospital, Leland & I decided we NEEDED a “life affirming” vacation with our big kids.. We’re currently on it, we’re blessed to go to Disneyland and recieve some disney magic while there.. I say that a DW vacation for your family is a VERY GOOD idea! (I blogged a bit about ours if you need a break..)

    You’re quite the character!! LOL I love your first letter signed “Grace and Peace” after telling him you’ll take him out. Very funny although I’m sure you feel what you wrote.

    So, I’m guessing that since you are contemplating this letter to your brother-in-law that you indeed did not already take him out with that casserole to the head.

    And I am sure that if you do get casseroles arranged for a year that they will also be too tasty to waste.

    Love you.
