Letter between Jordan and Lola – May 8, 2007

6 Oct

(When Jordan was in 7th grade, he was given an assignment to write to a family member.  He and Grandma exchanged letters over the next few months – these will be transcribed and marked as “Jordan and Lola Letters” for the blog.  Here is the 3rd letter in the series.)

Dear Lola,

Hey!  How are things going at home?  This letter is about the challenges I face towards the future.  Some of these challenges will definitely change my future.

Some of the personal challenges I faced when I was younger was when my mother pasted away.  That horrific moment changed my life.  I have never cried so hard in my life.  My mom dying made me realize life is too short to live afraid or hold back.  I am determined to well in life for my mom.  I know there is no way to fix this challenge or bring my mom back, but to absolutely try my hardest and succeed in life I hope will make my mom proud.

What challenges did you face when you were my age?  How did they change your perspective on life.  Did these challenges change your future?  What sacrifices did you make to fix these problems.  After these challenges did you change as a person, if so, how?

Please try and respond as soon as possible.  I am really glad we are getting to know each other.  This is the first time we really got to talk.  I can’t wait to see you, aunty Gloria, uncle Louie, Peyton, Kylee, Jason, and Rachel in Concord soon!  I love you and miss you so much!

Love,

Jordan
