I know you are in Heaven but I hope that you are proud of me

Dear Mother,

Today would have been your ninety-ninth birthday. If you were here, we would have had a party complete with cake and candles.




Open Letters are sent to the world and beyond. Here we say what must be said, whether it is harsh, humorous, or even a teensy bit passive aggressive. Share your open letters with the world, the meta-physical, or your micro-managing boss.
