Blogtember: Love Letter

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

So, the charge for Day 10 of Blogtember was to "Write a public love letter to someone in your life. (It doesn't necessarily need to be romantic.)" There are definitely more than a few people in my life that I could write love letters to, but in the interest of time and space, I'll try to contain myself.


Dear Constance (AKA: Meeper),
Where do I even begin? I met you before I even moved to Florida, thanks to the Facebook group for our med school class, and then when I got to this strange state where I basically knew no one (except my dad), you welcomed me with open arms (flippers?). You were my rock throughout my crazy med school experience, no matter what happened. You are one of the most passionate, dedicated, kindest people I have ever met in my life. You fight, and you fight hard, for what you want and those you love. You're the kind of person who will go out of her way to alleviate someone's suffering, and that's not just because you're a (seriously awesome) doctor. You have a huge heart (and I don't mean in the cardiomegaly kind of way) and the world is a better place because you are in it. You have never once judged me, even when I felt like I was at my worst; you have never been anything but my cheerleader, and I don't know what I would do without you. I admire you in so many ways, and I am so blessed to call you one of my best friends. I love you, Meeper. Thanks for being you.

Love,
A


Dear Sarah (AKA: LF),
Oh, my Little Friend. August 14, 2004 is a date that will live in infamy... or maybe not, but it is the day I wandered into your dorm room during freshman move-in days at Wittenberg and introduced myself. I'm not sure whether we were more excited that we were both 4'11" or both from NJ, but the bond was instant and we were essentially inseparable. That year was crazy for a hundred reasons, but I always knew that I could knock on South 202, even if it was after midnight and I was holding a box of Crispix and a bag of jelly beans. You were my study buddy, my lifeline, my touchstone for when I was homesick and lonely. You understood me in a way that no one ever had, and I seriously still think that we share a brain. Even when I transferred, you managed to keep me involved in your life in Ohio, and I always felt like I was important to you. You are the best listener, and you always make me laugh, even from hundreds of miles away. You are a sweet, kind, loving woman and you give so much of yourself to others. Even though you are crazy busy being a resident, you always make time for the ones you love, and I know that you and I will be friends forever, no matter what. Seriously. The miles between us may be many, but you are always in my heart. I love you, Sare. Thank you for being a part of my life.

Love,
A

Dear Levi,
Wow. Just wow. I have literally known you for your whole life. I remember being super excited when you were born, and I have said for years that you are my best friend in this world. I am so lucky to have you as a brother, because you are amazing. You are smart, hysterical, honest, and caring... you are seriously one of the best people I know. I am honored to be related to you (although sometimes I wonder how that's possible because I am a giant spaz and you seem to just get it together, haha.) Somehow, my "little" brother became my mentor and someone who I look up to (literally and figuratively!) I am so proud of you and the man that you've become, and I think the whole world should know how awesome you are. There are very few, genuinely GOOD people in this world, and you, my friend, are one of them. The amount of good that you will do in your life is going to be unreal, I can just tell. I am lucky enough to call you my brother, but some of the best fortune in the world I've gotten is the ability to call you my friend. I love you.

Love,
A (your Little Big Sister)

The prompt said to write a love letter (singular) and so I've already broken the rules... but before this post gets seriously out of hand, here is a list of other people whose behavior and existence warrants a love letter:

Left to Right: Kristin, Emily, Victoria, Julie, Pam, Jenn, Ken (sidebar)

These people are seriously the best. I am so blessed to have such amazing friends. I love you all, guys. Don't forget that.

Love, seriously love,
A
