When I met DH, I inherited an amazing set of grandparents who have treated me as family from the moment I met them.

I just went out to get the mail. There in the box was an envelope in my favorite color, addressed to me in Grandma's familiar handwriting. I saw it and my heart caught in my chest. I was almost afraid to open it.

As I opened the envelope, my heart swelled. Grandma had sent me a card titled "For the Mother-to-Be." I don't even have any words right now except to say that this card will forever live amongst my most precious cars and letters, tucked safely in to baby's hope chest, once I can bear to put it away.

Thank you, Grandma and Grandpa. I love you.
