Day 43: a love letter to friends

12 Feb

Tonight continues my commitment to more love and less fear this year.  For February, I am writing a love letter each day.  Tonight is dedicated to …friends.

Dear Friends (of New and Old):  

I’m not sure where or what I would be without you, dear friends.

They say you can’t pick your family but you can pick your friends.  And, I’m so thankful you picked me to share your life.

You have picked me up when my life split into a million pieces. You have pushed me to be more, think smarter, do better. You have been right by my side, seen me through my darkest moments, my biggest regrets, my best accomplishments and reminded me to lighten up and laugh a little more at times too.

I’m not sure where the line is drawn between acquaintance and friend.  And, I can’t quite pinpoint the moment when you and I crossed over from “meeting” each other to “can’t remember my life without you.”

More than anything, I love picking up the conversation right where we left off, even if it started one day, two years or three decades ago.

Whether we met in grade school, a college campus or across the office hallway, you have changed my life for good.

As the song goes:
Thank you for being a friend
Traveled down the road and back again
your heart is true you’re a pal and a confidant

There are some things so sacred they just can’t be put into words.
They must be seen. They must be felt. They must be sung.

And, you, dear friends of old and of new, are the music of my life.
For that, I sing your praises and I send you love.

Now and always.


P.S. Thank you to our dear friends, Pam and Neil, for visiting tonight. Everything is always more beautiful when it is shared with friends — even the beach at sunset.

P.P.S. I love this photo of you two!
