Letter to My Friend

Hi there,

How’s it going? It’s been a while since I’ve slowed down long enough to talk with you. I apologize. I know you like staying in touch and I know staying in touch with you is really good for me. I don’t have a better friend. I have the best intentions to spend time with you. I know that doing so would be a habit that my life would benefit hugely from.

Thanks for all the invites you send my way. I know you really care and it is clear that you do not and have not forgotten me. You really are the best friend I could ask for. I feel sorry knowing that many people wish they had a friend as “best” as you. I feel sorry knowing I take you for granted.

I’ve just been so tired lately. I’ve been so busy. There are so many good books to read, and so many songs to sing, so many events to show up at… I’ve had so many responsibilities to tend to. No matter how many things are on my to-do list, I know that time spent with you is not time wasted. In fact, you always have a way of helping me make sense of it all. When I’m confused and uncertain you always make it easy for me to weed out the unnecessary things and settle into peace.

You know how I get stuck in my own “doing” and I get lost in my thoughts? You, also know how that inevitably leads to frustration and stress for me. I need you more than I realize and I can’t help thinking that you continue a consistent effort to connect with me because you already know I need you. In some way, we need one another. We are true friends. We are family. Always.
