Dear Friday, well hello there. I thought you might never get here, but you never fail me. You see I have finally resigned myself to your late hour, having made it through the day and the week.
Dear Red Wine, yes you, I like your sassy bottle curves and your sneaky little smile. Mmmm...
Dear Billy Currington (double mmmm...), if you could only see me spinning around this big candlelit room with a glass in my hand, well, that voice of yours is always doing something right.
Dear Sore Body, yeah, you. You keep wanting to give up on me one muscle a a time, but surely and slowly we're getting it back. No, no. No more giving up and giving in. We're both in this for the long haul. I have to live somewhere, and it's not longer going to be a lazy garbage dump.
Dear Aunt Liz & Uncle Tom, thank you for the invite. Tomorrow's Cal v. Nevada College Football game is going to be quite amazing. Somehow I have managed to make it to 31 never having been to a live College Football Game. I think it's high time to do some jumping, shouting, and screaming!!
Dear Summer, I am sad to see you go. I feel like we were just getting comfy together. I can't believe you're gone again. Like another lost love...*sigh*, but I have hope you'll be back some day. Hopefully sooner rather than later. You know how much I love you even if I sometimes complain about how uncomfortable you make me.
Dear Family, we knew it was coming, let's make the best of our time with our blessed, sweet Uncle Mickey. 3-6 months isn't a long time, but it's an invitation to make the most if it and so many people don't get that at all. Don't be afraid. There's nothing to fear. It's just going to hurt for a while. Don't let it disable you from spending the few good days and moments we have left with him.
Dear Louise, you didn't get a warning. No one should ever outlive their children. I can't think of the words to say to you to help be a comfort, other than you have my thoughts and my prayers.
Dear readers, whoever you are. Tell the people you love that you love them. Whether it's the actual words, a kind gesture, a moment of time our of your day dedicated to thinking of them and simply saying that they're on your mind. Do it. Do it now, do it consistently, do it sincerely
