This morning I woke up bright and early-enough to send out some correspondence. I've been putting off sending out mother's day cards, but the Thursday before Mother's Day is probably the latest I can wait. After sending out the traditional cards to my own mom and step-mother, I decided to send one more, to my friend Ly, because even though she's half way through her pregnancy I have yet to congratulate her.
Ly and I went to a boarding school for high school, and met because we were roommates our freshman year. During school vacations and summers, my friends and I would send each other letters, which I used to be so good at and do so rarely anymore. Ly's letter were some of the best because she writes letters almost like she talks, so that when I read them now I feel like we've just spoken on the phone.
