For one last check on my Flist before bed/studying, I spotted this lovely gem of a meme on lady_alatar's journal. I think it's a great way to get out some of the stuff that's been going on with me, without giving anything real away.

It's kind of funny, because a friend of mine was doing something similar in a Gchat the other day. I think this will be very, very long and good for me. Here goes forever. Some of you will know who you are I think.

Dear ________:

I never thought we'd be friends at first, but suddenly God connected us. Now I don't know how I would live without your understanding of my spiritual side. My favourite moment this summer was when your car broke down at Starbucks and that guy just showed up and helped out of nowhere. =)

Dear ______:

You used me to get back on the road to selfishness because you thought I'd understand. The problem was, I did. Anyone perfect must be lying. And you were.

-Twyla


Dear ______:

You know, I kind of suspected it. And I think in my own way there was even some reciprocation for brief moments. Confessions on my side? It wasn't Pride, or Prejudice that drove my decision. It was your choice. Me, or those who don't exist. You chose the phantoms. Now you have to live with them.

-Twyla


Dear ______:

I was so disappointed in what you did that day. I'm sorry you feel that way about me, and in this case I don't think I deserve it. We didn't have to go this way, but I guess you lost interest in me because of our irreconcilable differences. I didn't have to like it, but I accepted your situation and moved on. But you always resented me for being honest.

-Twyla


Dear ______:

You wanted my forgiveness for what you said - you thought you'd said too much. In reality, I don't think I've ever felt so touched about what a friend said about me and not to me. You proved how well you knew me, how much you cared. You'll never betray me, and I love you for who you are. God brought us together as friends and he keeps us together through hard times and stressful situations. Every time you say you wish you could protect me it makes me feel safer. Thank you. I can't say thank you enough.

-Twyla


Dear ______:

You are so vibrant. You inspire me. Going to your place that night made my life brighter when I was sinking. I seem to be constantly in awe of you, but at the same time, we have a lot of things in common. I think it's fantastic that I'm one of your very few female friends. I am honored beyond belief.

-Twyla

Dear ______:

What is it you like about me? Why do you understand me so well, even after I told you how I usually feel about people like you, even you in particular? If ever someone asked me if I had a friend who showed me unconditional love, your name would come up immediately. There are no words to describe what that gift meant. Intensely personal, showing your understanding. I can't express it.

-Twyla


Dear ______:

Was it just a summer fling friendship, or do you really want to be friends with me? WHERE ARE YOU? I miss you. A lot.

-Twyla


Dear ______:

It hurts more because this time it was possible. That easy flow between us, the efficiency. I wonder if you're leaving, but you probably don't know. I wish I had the picture you asked me to take of you. But it was probably sent to someone far away, where you want to be. I wish you joy.

-Twyla

Dear ______:

It's funny that in such a short time we've shared so much of ourselves. I wish you weren't leaving so soon. I have only months to get to know you and so I'm going to put you near the top of the list. If nothing else, we've got eternity, right?

-Twyla


Dear ________ and ________:

FINALLY. It was music to my ears. (Eh, you know who you are!) Boy: I was cheering for you the whole time, really. Especially after that one day when you drove me home. Girl: I think you made the right choice. Enjoy!

-Twyla

Dear _______:

Please move on. Don't settle for one day being settled for. I kind of wish I knew you better, but our friendship was always pretty surface. I'm pretty sure I've offended you on some level that you won't admit, though. I can't change that, or meet you on equal footing it seems. You are so hilarious, though. And I hold you in high esteem.

-Twyla


Dear _______:

Never would have guessed you'd be the last one standing. We were the most similar after all. Someday maybe I'll be as blessed as you are. Until then, I'm so happy for what we have as friends now when all around has fallen.

-Twyla


Dear _______:

When we're in the same room, we connect. At all other times we don't. I can't quite understand that. Maybe our allegiances are different. I loved your music though. We have more in common than most people might think.

-Twyla


Dear _______:

I just met you, but I'm fascinated. I'm a bit afraid to ask you out for coffee. Because honestly, I think I would be asking you out. And I don't want to do it with screwy motives especially because I'm curious on every level. Please let me know you're interested in getting to know me better. Because I'm at the edge of my seat about you.

-Twyla


Dear _______:

You were the best thing about Urbana. I desperately hope we can keep up properly via email. I don't want to lose you.

-Twyla


Dear _______:

The night you walked me to my hotel I had to wonder if I wasn't selling all men short. I shouldn't be surprised any more by simple chivalry like that. But I enjoyed all the time I spent with you, and I'm glad you're interested in keeping up with me. It's nice to have contacts over there of my own - no more middleman!

-Twyla


Dear _______:

You're on my list of people to get to know better. It's been wonderful when we've had times to spend together without the whole gang, and just as great with them. I love that sharp part of you that tempers the bubbly part. Sharp to match your wit, your intelligence, your sword. ;)

-Twyla


Dear _______:

I really hope he works out for you. It sounds like he's amazing. I am honored that you chose to tell me, that you keep making such an effort to keep our friendship alive. Thanks to having that class together, I've found something unique in you, too. We challenge each other in different ways, and it's a great, fun ride. Lastly, the pizza aliens and the balloon guy are great memories. We're so spontaneous!

-Twyla


Dear _______:

It's funny how fast we hit it off and how personal we can be. Thank you, U of S. Cheers to you B.C. people, you always seem to get along with me.

-Twyla


Dear _______:

You've confused me a little bit, and I hope I see you on campus again soon. It was weird when you put your arm around me that day for a second to scare me when I was booking it to class, but it had a strange charm. That day at Starbucks was so odd. I'm glad you think I'm the coolest and I'm waiting to understand you. Maybe that's what makes you cool though? That I can't?

-Twyla

Dear _______:

I wonder if I know you yet? Our future is uncertain. I'm waiting for Him to bring us together. I love you already.

-Twyla

Wow, that was great therapy.
