30 Day Letter Challenge

I have decided to see how I will do on the 30 Day Letter Challenge. It is a fad going round in Blogsville and as the name suggests, the challenge is to write a letter a day to specific people. It sounds like fun – and a lot of work. Let’s see how I fare.

If you want to do it too, I have listed the letters & days below.

*Unless I ask you to come to my blog & read a letter, please don't assume that a letter is to you..just ask or sit back && wonder..your choice :)

Day 1 — Your Best Friend
Day 2 — Your Crush
Day 3 — Your parents
Day 4 — Your sibling (or closest relative)
Day 5 — Your dreams
Day 6 — A stranger
Day 7 — Your Ex-boyfriend/girlfriend/love/crush
Day 8 — Your favorite internet friend
Day 9 — Someone you wish you could meet
Day 10 — Someone you don’t talk to as much as you’d like to
Day 11 — A Deceased person you wish you could talk to
Day 12 — The person you hate most/caused you a lot of pain
Day 13 — Someone you wish could forgive you
Day 14 — Someone you’ve drifted away from
Day 15 — The person you miss the most
Day 16 — Someone that’s not in your state/country

DAY 1 – My Best Friend

Dear Best Friend(s),

I have begun this letter without even knowing exactly who you are. The question running through my head as I pen these first few sentences is… Who is my best friend? I think the issue is that I don’t have a circle of two. My innermost circle is not a circle of two, but a bigger one. I have closest friends – friends who know me better than anyone else in this world. They are about three or four or five or six.   At any point in time, one of these may be more up-to-date on what is going on with me. But at no point in time can I point one out and say that’s my best friend. I am for the most part equally attached to these wonderful inner circle friends of mine. So I guess my letter today will be to my Best FriendS.

Every time I pray, and every time I count my blessings, I remember my friends and smile. I think friendship is one of the wonders of the world and one of the most valuable assets one could have. And I think when it comes to friendships, I would easily make Forbes list of wealthiest people. It is not that I am such a great person. I am not. It’s just that I am blessed when it comes to my friends. I am blessed when it comes to you – all of you.

I don’t know if you’ve noticed this… But every time I am with you, I keep checking the top of your head and your backs for your halos and wings. And every time I don’t find them, I wonder what I have missed because I find it hard to believe you are not angels. I also wonder how long heaven can do without you and what I ever did to deserve such a magnanimous loan from Heaven. I also worry about the interest payments. You guys have been with me for so long and through so much… Would I ever be out of debt if God decided to collect?

I don’t think I’m the easiest person to love. Neither am I the world’s best communicator and yet you love me without reservation. I love you too. I want you to know. And I pray I am as wonderful a friend to you as you are to me. It’s the least I could do.
