Mail Time

To begin with, let’s just get over the fact that it is 10:38 p.m. on a Friday night and I am at my computer writing a post. I just can’t go out unless I write one, ok?

Not true.

The truth is I decided to be responsible. But I will be out in the State College craziness tomorrow night–AFTER WE BEAT NOTRE DAME.

T-Shirts Floating Around Campus:

“I Don’t Give A Notre Dame.”

“Notre Lame”

and my personal favorite, a new one:

“They’ve got Jesus. We’ve got JoePa”

Moving on to my real post for the night. Whatever happened to writing letters and sending cards? It’s the best feeling in the world to get them in your mailbox. Even if it says something simple. Or something not so simple…

There is something you have to understand about me I have 3 best friends. (and they are better than your best friends :)) One in particular who is an amazing card sender. She manages to send them at the most perfect times—and she doesn’t even know it.

I wrote a while ago about how awesome my 2007 is going. Or not so much. In Febuary I recieved a card from Megan. After I upwrapped the string that held the chabby-chic, floral designed card shut I read the following: “LB- I LOVE YOU! Love, Megan”

That is all I needed at that time. Perfect.

And just recently I recieved a card with a photograph of three little girls hugging that read “Who’s to say why friends last-I’m just glad they do.” Megan wrote:

“Like I said, the beginning of the (school) year always reminds me of the sleepover in 7th grade that you invited me to at the bus stop. In a way, this time of the year is like the anniversary of our friendship. So, happy 9th aniversary best friend! I love you and I am so glad to have you in my life. I hope your first week of senior year (YIKES!) is going well. Don’t work too hard on your marthon training and LSAT studying! I miss you! Love always and forever, Megan”

I told you I have the best friends. And it’s little notes like this that help me put my life into perspective.

So in honor of our 9 fabulous years of being best friends Megan I am going to write YOU a letter. Right now. But while you wait to receive your letter on the other side of PA know that I love you too. And there is no doubt in my mind that we have another 9 years ahead of us—and I’m excited about what is to come!
