i've been in a letter-writing mood the past week or so, which can be either a very good thing or a very bad thing depending on what kind of letter i write. i don't write many letters - my emails, even to close friends, tend to be pithy to the point of terse. mostly when i write someone a letter its to tell them one of two things - how much i love them or how deeply i'm upset with them.
last week i had to write one kind of letter. today i wrote the other. for my father's fiftieth father's day, i sent him a letter to tell him what a truly great father he'd been, how lucky i am, and how blessed.
because another thing i've learned in the last few weeks is that there's a world of difference between people who've had a good daddy... and those who didn't.
and furthermore, the war will end. blessed be.
