Dear Friend

Written for The Write Tribe Unsent Letters - a letter to a best friend  and also for the letter D at ABC Wednesday.
Linking to: Indiblogeshwaris That Tuesday Thingy - Friends

Dear Friend

I hope all is well in your world. Time has dashed by so fast. It seems like only yesterday we were sitting together in class listening to the droning sound of the teacher's voice. Those were happy carefree days full of dreams.

Life has thrown many challenges and demands our way. In my difficult moments I think of you and draw strength from you even though you are far away from me. I hope you can do the same.

There are so many memories that bring a smile to my face, but I think one of my fondest is listening to your Portrait of Donny record over the phone. My dad always wondered why those phone calls were so long! I kept him guessing :)

I think of you often. And though our lives haven't been quite the dreams we wanted them to be, I hope that it has been by and large fulfilling for you.

Sending many good wishes your way - that you find peace even in distressing and testing times, that you find strength to overcome difficulties and hurdles, that each dilemma you face has a solution, that each disappointment in life is overturned by a success, that each despair is compensated with some moment of joy, but most of all that you always feel that divine love no matter what the situation is.

Sending you tons of love and hugs.
