To my best friend

Saturday, November 10, 2012

Dear Darlene,
I don't think I ever take the time to tell you I appreciate you for the person you are inside and out. Your other friends tell you all the time that you a good person and I am sorry your reply is " I am just me no more no less". Although I know how you so desperately want to believe that I also know you are so much more.
In your life you have met every trial that was thrown at you with a strength that is most do not have. When you wanted to stop and quiet you found that inner strength and you kept right on pushing. Strength is wonderful gift isnt it ? So long as you dont use to it push others away. It is alright to need someone sometime .
Your caring capacity far exceeds the people in your life . I have often wonder how you can encourage others and not ask for that some encouragement back . Again that is just your nature is it ? The old adage give till it hurts really applies to you. You give till you have nothing left give to yourself. But you must remember if you can not give to yourself eventually you can not give to others because you are all used up.
Your heart has been bruised and shattered and yet you still manage to continue to believe . You refuse to give up hope even when there seems none left . When your days get dark and cloudy and nothing seems to make it better, you dont ever say I am done, Breath that is your simple task because you know if you can breath through today tomorrow will be so much better.
People say you inspire and motivate but you dont see it because your modesty gets in the way. You really should learn to accept the things that you do with an open heart that you so easily give to others.
This week you are given the task of remembering yourself of all the challenges this will be the hardest for you because you dont do this nearly enough. It is easy to remember the bad however there is plenty of good that you really need to remember as well ...

Your loving friend,
Your Inner Tink

    A good assignment and wonderful, moving letter. Thank you for sharing and believe it because it is TRUE! When we start seeing ourselves through someone else's eyes... the new us... it is the start of a huge amount of growth. Self talk is powerful but it takes practice to start treating ourselves like a best friend.

    emoticon for sharing this blog with us! It is awesome that you remember your friends and how much you appreciate them! We can never have enough friends! I feel God puts people in our lives for different reasons and if it wasn't for friends, then how would we get through some of the trials we have to go through? God bless you for thinking of your friend in such a special way! emoticon emoticon
