Open letter: Thinking of you


Hey  you,

Thank you for your note. I’ve been thinking about you, too. It’s difficult to express, but I’ll give it a shot.
This time of year has me reflecting on the course of the past year , and on the people who have really made a difference for me. As you know, a brutal break-up has had me taking a hard look at myself. It’s been difficult, and combined with other uncertainties (mainly in my work life), I’ve had one of the worst years of my life. I’m done with 2011. So ready for a new year.
It’s times like this that have shown me who’s really in my corner, who really cares. And you’re at the top of that list of people who came through. You arrived at just the right time. You were the angel who swooped in when I need you most. You listened. You cared. What’s really special is that you’ve been there all along. I just didn’t know it.
That touches me so deeply, makes me tear up right now. Your simple action of reaching out, your simple gift of love when you had no idea whether it would be returned. That’s big stuff. That changes the world.
I don’t know how to repay that, except to note your act and its power, and do the same for another. So much love back to you. You’re an amazing spirit. Holding you close in my thoughts and prayers.
