Day 23 – a letter to anyone


Oh dear! I’m a day late with this. So I’ll just have to do a double posting today, I guess. Here’s the letter:


I’ve been wondering who I’ll write this letter to, first considering the love of my life (but seeing as he never reads my blog unless specifically directed to – and even then it’s not guaranteed), then my mother (I’m not sure whether she reads this blog, and I decided that if not, I’d rather keep it that way), so I decided to write to you.

I miss you. I know I’m not the only one, but I also know that I was always special to you. You made such a huge contribution to the person I am today. I often wonder what you’d say about my life if you were around; it hasn’t turned out the way I had hoped, and there are aspects of it I’m sure you’d disapprove of, but overall I hope that you’d be satisfied with how I’ve coped with everything.

I would have loved for you to meet my best friends – I imagine their awkwardness at your silly jokes, them being enthralled (like strangers often were) by your tales, not being sure whether you were being serious or not, and the long discussions you would have with them about the world, religion and rugby. And about me.

I’m fortunate that my best friend of all is the love of my life, and a man who believes in me as much as you did, and who supports and encourages me in everything. It doesn’t make missing you any less painful. He also lost someone very close to him 17 years ago. I can’t believe it’s been almost two decades!

Do you know that I could feel when the end approached? I will never forget that. I will never forget you, and I hope that some day more people will know about you, your influence in my life, and how much you will always mean to me.

See you sometime in the future. Take care (of me, of mom, of us all, please).


Day 16 – what I’d do with my remaining time if the earth ended tomorrow


Hmm… I’d spend it with the love of my life. Probably holding his hand, since he’s not big on hand holding, and I figure he can maybe make this small sacrifice for me, the future considering. I don’t know what else. There would be no point in going on a shopping spree or anything out of the ordinary. I’d just make sure everyone I love knew it.

Day 8 – Three things to say to different people


Mom – you’re a great mom. I’m grateful for everything you’ve sacrificed for me (and still do) and that you’ve raised me right. I love you.

Colleague A – please keep your nose out of my business. If I’m not talking to you directly, it doesn’t concern you. I also would prefer it if you kept your negative rantings to yourself.

Love of my life – I miss you. I know you don’t want what I want, but it doesn’t make me stop wanting it. Or you. And mostly I’m okay with that. Either way, I don’t resent or blame you; I think it’s admirable that you know what you want and that you stick to your beliefs regardless of what anyone else say or do, or how your circumstances may change. But you know, if you ever do decide to take that next step, it wouldn’t necessarily be such a bad thing 😉 xx
