a letter to you

Dear Friend,

I know we might not get to talk everyday. That's okay.

I know that sometimes when days turn into weeks, and those weeks turn into months... you haven't forgotten me. Just as I haven't forgotten you. 

There is something each day that will remind me of you. Your face or voice will pop in my head and I will hold that memory close to my heart. Sometimes I will reach out and let you know that I am thinking of you. But for all the times I don't, just remember you are loved. 

I have learned that it is impossible to stay in contact with every single person who means something to us every single day of our lives. It is a challenge I have faced for years. So instead I have learned to smile when you cross my mind. I will remind myself how blessed I am to have such wonderful people and happy memories. I will ask God to send you a similar sign and to show you love and comfort. 

Don't be sad if I am far. My love will go beyond any distance. I mean this more than I will ever be able to express.

Love Always,

D
