This letter thing

is difficult.

I’ve been (honestly) counting down days until my commitment is over so I can have a break and not feel like I’m disappointing people. It has become a habit to write, which I love, but sometimes it feels like a habit I can’t afford to indulge.

And then, today, unexpectedly, I got some encouragement from an old friend.  She blogged here, and while reading that I started to cry. It felt like words I needed to hear; it felt like validation. It made me remember why I wanted to write daily in the first place and why it’s so important for me to love people well.

I forgot momentarily about how all of our lives touch other lives, infinitely. We change everyone around us unconsciously, whether we like it or not.

I pray that I live my life well and fully and that I keep finding things that I love and that inspire me. I pray that people are put in my life like Tami, with the gift of encouragement at just the right moments. I pray that Tami realizes how important she is to me, and how much I love her.

    It’s crazy right? We have SOO much more influence on the world than we believe. I’m glad I could encourage you in the same way you encourage and inspire me. I love you a lot and even thought we don’t get to see each other often, you’re always on my mind!
