To My Dearest Self,

you haven't forgotten, have you, how beautiful this life can be? are you writing, dear? are you creating? don't forget how precious and precarious this all is. don't become complacent, love.

i want you to remember that you were happy, strong and beautiful. you brightened peoples' lives. you had an allegiance to doing what is right, even if it was for a moment.

and speaking of moments ... you had amazing moments. remember the poem at the pond? remember the view from the cliff at rimrock? sharing beautiful sentiments with justin? watching parker coming into this world.

your loving relationship with God is so crucial to this happiness in spite of circumstance. as i write, i am experiencing something so tragic and sad, something you've already overcome, and i'm proud of you for how strong you've been throughout. i praise God for this strength and forbearance.

always have hope, love. always remember the beauty in the journey.

keep growing in love and strength and please pass it on.
