Short letters, letters and more letters
It is a one-a-day letter challenge but I am going to consolidate to whom I will write letters to.
First is spouse/significant other and the #3 is best friend. For me, my partner is my best friend as well.
"You complete me or at least contributed to my being, of what I am now, and I like what I am with you. You have helped me to be more understanding. Taming that anger that seems to never end. You taught me to love myself more and to treat others better. Each day is a challenge of course for we are not perfect but we work things out. You keep me grounded to my feet and I have learned humbleness from you. You taught me that. You have accepted me as me that's why I love you."
I don't have children but I do have niblings.
"Learn as much as you can. Me as your uncle will try my best to be there for you. Some of you I can only watch from afar as you grow into beautiful and handsome young men and women. Always listen to your parents and to your elders. Be respectful and kind to yourself and to others."
Mom and Dad
"Let me start by saying thank you for all your sacrifices. You did your best raising us up. You may have said it and shown us in many different ways how we don't have enough but that you also taught us that we as a family is much more important. You made it sure that we have food on the table and roof above our heads. You did your best to send us to school. Until now, you don't stop being parents. You should be out there enjoying your time together but you still take care of us. With that, I love you both."
"We may not be together all the time anymore for that is what adulting does. It will send us to different directions. However, I am still grateful for the times that we can get together physically and virtually. We may not be talking that much for we have our own lives but we still show our care and concern in our way. Thank you for being there."
"Wherever you are now, I hope you continue to guide us just like how you did when you were still alive. I do miss you. I miss that familiarity and feeling of being home and loved whenever I see you and/or visit you. It always takes me back to my childhood days where I get to spend time with you. If only I can see you one last time."
"To my big family, we may not be spending that much time together but you are always in my thoughts. I pray that you continually do well and be blessed wherever you are. I cannot pinpoint each one of you but know that we will always be here for you and for each other."
So there goes the first part of this letter writing. It's all about family.
How was your week? I hope you are all looking forward to this weekend.
