and there’s one person in my life that is constantly throwing the ball in my court, even when it sometimes just kind of bounces off of me và rolls back lớn her side. She is hands down one of the most important, influential people in my life.

In fact, whenever I listen to that Dave Barnes song, “God Gave Me You,” her face is the one I think of when I hear the line “you’ll always be love’s great martyr, và I’ll be the flattered fool. & I need you.”

Her name is Claire.

When I first met her, she was a tiny little gal. Sassy & silly and sometimes scary, but so cute & so fun. And now she’s gone from being this little tiny fireball to lớn this beautiful grown up fireball.



So a few months ago, Claire was driving through town & we were able khổng lồ catch up briefly. Time with her is always too short, because she is wise beyond her years & pee-your-pants hilarious và such a joy lớn be around. It was right before I took a leap of faith và told Ryan I liked him, & Claire was there to lớn get caught up on the whole thing – which almost had me at my breaking point.

Shortly after she returned to school, she sent me one of the most heart-filled, beautiful collection of words in the khung of a letter. Claire’s a word person. Lượt thích she will out of the blue send me a text message that sometimes makes me fall lớn the ground because it is full of love and affirmation. So then all the Ryan stuff happened and I kind of texted her about it, but I refused lớn even begin to overshare any part of it because I wanted lớn tell Claire. In a letter. With words I have to lớn carefully choose because my hand would get too tired if I constantly started re-writing the letter because of a poor choice of words, you know?

I was scrolling through the Blogging for Books site, looking at the different books that were available to đánh giá and I saw this book, The World Needs More Love Letters All-in-One Stationery & Envelopes

. Let me tell you, I was on that like stink on poo. As I anxiously checked the mail every day, I kept thinking “Claire.” Then when I opened the envelope I thought “Claire.” One of my favorite parts of the package is the prompts of love letters listed inside of the covers.

The stationary in this book is perfect for this kind of thing. You tear out a page and it has everything you need. One side is lined for the letter, & the other side has a line for the address.
