Good morning Babe,
It cracks me up, I always refer to these letters based on the time of day that I am writing. I know the odds of you receiving this letter in the morning are rare, but I still want you to have a good morning – every morning!
I can’t even explain to you what our video call with the family did yesterday. It lifts everyone’s spirits in a way that only you can. This entire family misses your presence every minute of every day. I hope you saw what a wonderful Father Nate is. Although I felt bad that he made Brooke wait for him to bring the baby in, I know exactly why. He wanted so badly for you to see her for the first time in his arms. And that was not just a show for your benefit. He is every bit as much as a father as you taught him to be! I am also so grateful that he was able to watch Dan for the last 8 months because that little man is a great role model for what a Dad is supposed to be!! These girls are so lucky and what an experience to have them all in my home during such a devastating life phase.
I am going to tell you again, you looked amazing! The boys went on and on about how wonderful you looked! I am so proud of you!!! I hoped you noticed how your boys hung on every single word! Please make sure you get the forms mailed out as soon as you are able so the boys can get the baby’s set up under your visitation schedule. You deserve to hold your grandbabies!!!
Thank you so much for getting your letter ready. You made jokes last night about me thinking you were going to take months to take care of it. I never once thought that. I know you are my partner and I never doubted your willingness to do your part. You forget that I know you inside and out. You are the reason that I am fighting this battle so vigorously! You have taught me so much about myself and about faith, family, integrity, and inner strength over the past decade. You did that! I have always been strong, but you are the one who taught me what being strong means. I will be forever grateful for that I and I will never be able to repay you for the unconditional support you have given to this entire family no matter the battle. We are all only repaying you! ❤
I can’t wait for you to get my latest news release. It’s not that I am not always proud of what I write because I am so critical about every little sentence before I am done with my final draft, but this last one came from somewhere I wasn’t expecting. For some reason, this one came out so effortlessly. I typically take at least 3 days to write a piece. I like to leave it as a draft once I finish so I can go back in and read it after a good night sleep. I will typically add a few things that I forgot or delete a few things that don’t feel appropriate the next day. I also find that by the third day, I won’t typically make any changes and that is when I feel confident to publish. This one came out like it was being transcribed instead of created. It was by far the easiest one yet. Let me know what you think once you get it.
There is a song that hit me the other day so you know me, it is now on my playlist. I so badly with you had the ability to listen to it because the music is what does it. The words are great, but the sophisticated melody that goes from the softest piano to a heart thumping ensemble of violin and strings that seem to vibrate your soul as the final chorus sings a strong version of the softer chorus with an unexpected change of words that make you feel like you are effortlessly rising from a laying position to a warriors stance in the blink of an eye!
