My mailman left me the sweetest package the other day and I am just now writing to say thank you....shame on me for not doing so sooner. How can I say thank you and let you know how much I truly mean it?
The day you sashayed into my life was a gift from God. You are one of the funniest, prettiest, and generous Southern belles it has ever been my pleasure to meet. You make me smile with your comments, giggle at your antics, swoon with your talent, and you allow me to be one of your friends. This my darling girl is the real gift...the gift of friendship.
You provide me with the warmth of a hug...even from long distance. You lift me up when I'm feeling blue (how on earth do you know when I need that the most?) and never fail to show me the beauty in the humblest of things. You are a joy in my life and a chance to be young...even if for just a little while. Being around you, I forget just how old I am and for just the tiniest moment...I'm 34 again...thanks to you.
By now I'm sure you've realized I'm not just thanking you for the lovely papers, but for being Jodie...thoughtful, crazy Cajun, sweet potato you!I hope I never get so jaded that I take for granted the little gifts in life and the joy that comes from simple things such as love freely given with no strings attached. It's an art you have perfected and one I hope to achieve.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart to the top. I miss you and I love you too. All my love, Debbie
