Each week I am writing to a person who has left an imprint on my life.
When was the last time you wrote a letter that wasn't part of a greeting card?
Not typed or texted, but wrote.
You are the only person from [...] that I am writing to.
You were the only one that got me.
I never would have guessed that we would have such an instant connection...
I've always wondered why you just came by my house that day.
I'm glad you did.
I got along well in school, but never felt like I fit.
I always felt different.
I saw that in you, too.
You were bold and uncompromising in your identity.
You were so outspoken, and I so was not.
My mom loved you to pieces...
You made us laugh...brought light into our lives when we had some dark times.
I told you secrets...you never judged me.
...I never judged you.
Then life happened.
I believe it's a testament to our friendship...
we were able to just start up again.
Sure, we had 15 years to fill in, but it didn't matter.
Thank you for finding me--
when we were 15 and when we were 30.
