I look forward to going to the mailbox on days like today because I know that there will be something other than a boring bill or junk mail. Every holiday, no matter how insignificant, I can count on going to the mailbox and seeing an envelope addressed to me (and now to my daughters too). These envelopes have come, without fail, ever since I was a little girl. Each time there is a little card, holiday specific, with Scratch & Win Lotto Tickets inside. The cards mean so much more than the lottery tickets inside (which my girls love to scratch off to see if they win $1 or a free ticket). These are little love notes from my Auntie Jo. Every year, every holiday, she remembers her god-daughter (and many other nieces, nephews & great nieces). These cards are her way of saying that she is thinking about us/misses us/loves us.
We love you too, Auntie Jo! If we win the million, you will get half for sure!
