Dear Old Friend,
I saw you in the store today and a feeling of joy warmed my heart at your presence. Yes, it has been some time since we’ve seen each other but no matter how long, that warmth never changes.
I wanted to tell you how important you are to me and how much you have touched my heart and impacted my life. I wanted to tell you how brave I think you are for all that you’ve been through and overcome. I wanted to tell you what an amazing person I think you are and that I love you dearly, my friend.
But the grocery store is no place for such deep truths, and so instead we spoke about the weather and the possibility of rain. We said our “it’s nice to see you’s” and went on our way.
And such a shame it is that there are so many places that are not the place for such deep truths.
