Feel free to plagiarize this today:
You’ve been on my mind this week/last night/for the past month.
It’s been about a month/year/decade
since your dad died/since you changed jobs/ since we last talked/ since you set out on that cool quest/since you gave up on that quest that was killing you.
I’ve been wondering how you are feeling/how your courage is after the surgery/ how it feels now that you’ve been training for this long / what you miss most about your dad.
a gift card for coffee us to use together / the crescent wrench I borrowed and never returned /the daisies you like/ a letter of recommendation to the writer you’ve always wanted to meet.
And I finally put away my tools/fixed the fence that let our dogs into your yard / tore down the fence that got built between us/ realized you were right/ admitted to everyone else that you were right and that I had been wrong about you.
I’ll be in town next month/at church next week/home in a couple days/on your porch when you read this.
I hope you are doing well/we can laugh again/ you can tell me stories about your mom/you are safe.
As always I love you/ I’m talking to God about you/ I’m cheering for you.
