Speaking of letters… (I posted a little something on Facebook today)… One of my dearest, oldest and closest friends surprised me in my hospital room after a traumatic, scary delivery of our first daughter. She wrote this letter 8 years ago… and I cried again yesterday just as hard if not harder when I read it again. This time though, I was able to read it with my daughter.
I want her to know what living honestly and being genuine is all about- (KEEP IT REAL!) and I want her to know the value of friendship… and that a true friend is an amazing find. I want to share this amazing letter (tissues handy- consider yourself warned)…Written by someone who has known and been friends with me since the summer of 1990, right after I graduated high school and moved to Richmond. She might kill me for posting this… but I want to share both the letter of friendship, but also the first thoughts on the miracle of giving birth.
