Catherine of Siena, have become an Italian classic; yet perhaps the first thing in them to strike a reader is their unliterary character. He only will value them who cares to overhear the impetuous outpourings of the heart and mind of an unlettered daughter of the people, who was also, as it happened, a genius and a saint. Dante, Petrarch, Boccaccio, the other great writers of the Trecento, are all in one way or another intent on choice expression; Catherine is intent solely on driving home what she has to say.
I write you many letters with pens which are not seen. Do you receive them? This is the case with letters from grandparents and I'm going to tell you why. Unlike a child's parents, many grandparents enjoy an extra special bond with children.
An unconditional love and slightly slack set of rules makes for, in many cases, a child's first best friend. They know you understand them and feel at ease in confiding things to and despite the enormous age difference you're most on their level.
This is especially true when children are very small. Now with many people waiting longer to get married and have children, the time grandchildren are able to physically spend with grandparents has become smaller or in many cases non-existent. This is how letters can play an extremely important role in your grandchild's life.
Not only do they need to know you're thinking of them, they need to be reminded when you pass on. They need to hear those stories again They want to know all about you and where you and they come from.
They'll want all of your recipes and have questions they never were able to ask answered. Through your letters to them you'll be able to be a part of their entire adult lives and even passed on to their children.
Best of all, since letters are so personal, you won't have to worry about people fighting over them or, hopefully, selling or throwing them away. Things common to peoples estates when they pass on. Write the grandchildren you have now. Write the ones that might come later.
Even those older ones who blow you off, take you for granted or act disrespectful-they're the ones who often feel the most pain and need to hear from you when you pass on. You can write the ones who haven't come yet or to nephews and nieces if you haven't any of your own children.
Write while you're in your 20s, 30s, 40s, 50, write at Tell a story or just jot down the highlights of your day. They might write you back and make the exchange even more personal. Or you may leave them a huge bundle that were never actually mailed. Either way this is a personal plea-write, write, please write!
It's a gift that so few receive nowadays but one that so many need and will cherish.
