Dear Elizabeth: While You Were Sleeping……

The following entry is written for my niece, Elizabeth, in honor of the Cubs World Series win.


Dear Elizabeth,

Last night while you were sleeping, the universe shifted. The stars aligned and the impossible happened……

The Chicago Cubs won the World Series.

And I can’t believe I just typed that sentence.

The last time that had happened, your parents and grandparents had yet to be born.

It was illegal for women to vote.

There were only 46 states in the US.

Long story short, the world was much different the last time the Chicago Cubs won the World Series.

So the game last night was a very big deal.

That is why your parents and I were yelling so much.

I’m sorry we woke you up.

Love you forever,

Auntie Laura
