A Thank You Note

Dear A,

I had a dream about you today.  Though the plot was pretty nonsensical, so many details were from my memories of our time together.  I enjoyed the dream because of those details.

Because we haven't spoken in a long time, you probably don't know that I am married to a wonderful man.  He is smart and funny and kind.  It took me a long time, but I finally found someone who completes my life.

We recently had a daughter. She is a healthy, precious infant, yet I'm totally freaked out about motherhood. There are so many things that could go wrong!  I want everything to be perfect even though I know that is ridiculous.  Nothing can be perfect, and I try to tell myself that, but still...

I want you to know that I truly cherished our friendship.  Not only did I have fun with you, but I also learned from you.  I don't think I ever shared with you how much of an impact you had on me.  I will always appreciate the times we shared.

I hope that all is well with you.



  1. What a precious note. I hope you were able to send it. It's easy to drift apart from people who have meant so much to us. I'm glad your dream prompted you to write this note because it's a good one. Thanks for sharing.

  2. What a wonderful note. I love the last paragraph of thanking this person for their friendship and what you learned from them. Thank you for sharing!
