World War II Immigrant Mom: “We live in blessed USA”
My German-speaking grandmother (ethnic German, born in Transylvania) is sending lots of love to her youngest son, Frank. "Be yourself" is a common exhortation of hers. Her confidence in her son comes through in this phrase. As his mom, she knows if he's "true to himself" and his fine nature, he'll find success. She adds some chatty news about home and the neighbors he left behind.
