Dear Future Woman who’s also named after the Mountains,

I find myself worrying for you. But I know you are with me, whispering to me, helping me make choices and changes to become more like you. I have faith in you. To bring forth all of the wonderful things I seek, and want.
I hope you have a wonderful lover and perhaps a perfect little moon-baby. Maybe a few! You picked out a really amazing lover, huh? Someone who takes polaroids because he knows you love them. And lets you decorate the apartment because it makes you so SO happy. I hope you don’t make a big deal about things, at least not for a very long time. And remember to go run if you want to use strong words…
Remember that everything is just an experience. And never forget to LOVE, okay? Please stay innocent, loving and beautiful. I get worried about how taxing our world can be on my sensitive self- just always be light. Always. You got that?
I hope you stay strong in boot camp. I wish you are a crazy, kick-ass, ninja, rock-star when you go. That you combat those head games with steely eyes and be a bad-ass who doesn’t cry like I am when people normally yell at me.
I hope you still do yoga, have gotten better about mailing out letters- and have stayed diligent about keeping in contact with your old, dear friends- even when you make hundreds more.
I wish you stay soft, and supple; ever-adapting like I always have.
Please remember all of the love your mother has taught you to share. Remember how giving and loving she is, remember the beauty of being able to stay and visit with your family when you were my age. Sharing the bed with your sister and our silly fights over clothes and me being overly-sensitive.
Don’t ever accuse your parents of not doing the best they could, whenever they could. Because they say how proud of me they are all the time. They transformed me into a kind person, be that person when I come to meet you, maybe learn to be kinder, and more giving, listen more too. I am trying to stop talking so much, hopefully it works by the time I meet you.
Pick a good husband to have as a lover. Perhaps never stop referring to him as that? A lover. I am praying that a man is being ripened and grown to meet you. I know he likes board games, and loves to stay in, play them while cuddling on Friday nights. He will go on runs with you and practice yoga. He takes lots and lots of pictures, like he can’t be any prouder to love you, and leaves sweet notes all over the house for you to find.
I’m excited to meet you and hear about all of the fascinating stories I can listen to. You have so many possibilities at your beautifully trimmed fingertips, cherish them, notice them and take advantage.
The girl you’re named after.

Dear ex,

Hi. I know we were not together for a long time. And I know you feel as though you have hurt me. And you did. But what I want you to know now is that I have forgiven you and I want to make things right.

I just want to thank you.

Thank you for ending it when I could not. Thank you for being there for me and listening, even when you probably just wanted to run away. You saw that we weren’t right for each other, and took charge of the situation, even though you knew it would result in someone getting hurt.

Thank you for respecting me. Thank you for not just being with me because all of our friends are paired off together, and it would have been easy for us to fall together. Thank you for not settling for “good enough,” and not letting me settle either.

I hope one day we can go back to being friends. Not like the way we were before. I don’t think we could ever go back. But I hope we can be friends again. I miss my fellow fifth wheel.

To the man who opened the door for me today,

You didn’t just make sure I caught the door as you brushed by, on your way to wherever you were going. No. You stopped, opened the door, and stepped aside to let me in. Thank you.

It really is the little things that can make someone’s day.

Dear Future Husband

Dear Future Husband,

I am so excited to meet you! You have no idea how many years I have longed and waited for you. This road has not been easy. I have been deceived, calling other by your name in my heart. These men who have let me down, broken my heart, betrayed my trust, and left me oh so much more anxious for YOU!

You may not be the first man to love me, kiss me, dance with me. But I promise that you will be the last.

I have reserved all the depths of my heart for you. I have secrets that I have guarded, only to share with you. This fact alone will tell you that I never doubted the fact that you were yet to enter my life one day.

I may not know your face or your heart yet, but I already love you desperately.

You inspire me, free me, make me want to be a better person.

I am so excited for our adventures together, traveling to strange places, Christmas Eve with my family, and swimming in the freezing Pacific Ocean. I am excited to share my heart with you, to share my love with you.

In the meantime, I will wait, as I have been for these last 23 years. Waiting in expectancy for you to walk into my life and steal my heart away. I will pray. Praying as I have been since I was a small child, that you will fall in love with Jesus first. Praying that you will know your identity and strength in Christ. Praying that you will grow into the man you were meant to be, the man who will come and win my heart.

You will be mine and I will be yours, wholly and completely. Unified together. Solid and true.

Oh my dear Future Husband, I love you! I know with all my heart that I will know you when I see you. I know that you will be unexpected and unmatched by all those before, those men who tried and failed to win this heart of mine.

I will wait. You are worth it.

Love, Your One Day Wife

To The Pita Pit Guy

I really enjoyed my experience at the never busy establishment that you work at. Every time I go there I hope you’re working. Is that weird?

I wish I would’ve asked what your tattoo meant because it’s pretty legit.

Anyways, I hope you’re having a wonderful day. Keep making awesome, delicious food.

Dear Crazy Ass Lady

Dear Crazy Ass Lady, You frustrate me beyond belief. I can’t even believe that I wasted an hour of my day talking in circles while you rambled on about moot points and useless details about your temporary bank card, only to end up saying the exact same thing I told you 30 times in the previous 45 minutes. What makes it worse is that you ruined my day. You put me on edge and I allowed you to dictate how I reacted to every other circumstance that came along today. I hate you for that. There are only two possible explanations for what happened today: 1. You are bat-shit crazy 2. I’m the shit crazy one, assuming that everything about our conversation was revolving around me and how “not crazy” I am. For all I know, you have a ton of stuff going on in your life that is so much bigger than your debit card, you just needed an outlet. I’m pretty sure it was the first reason ’cause I know I’m not crazy. (Durp) – Dave PS – I’m sorry.

Dear Flag Lady

Dear Flag Lady

I can’t imagine how your brain passes the time all day, standing in the cold and rain; likely receiving not-so-positive responses from those you must delay.

With the seemingly endless project happening near my house, I admit I have lost patience with all people. Hearing the non-stop construction noise is so grating. You my dear orange & yellow traffic controlling friend, you set my mood right when I drive by you. Each morning and afternoon I’m stopped, though only for a moment, and you present me with a smile that just makes my day, that makes me forget about the mud, noise, and other insignificant things in my life.

I truly hope that you are treated with due respect, but somehow I get the feeling that even if you are not you will still make it a priority to brighten up others’ days.

i just wish i could make you understand that life experiencce is hard and sucks sometimes and you are going to have such heart break with him. it makes my soul cry knowing how much you are hurting and you stay. how many times do you have to get hurt and let down to turn and walk away?? to know that you should respect yourself a little more than what you do. i cry silently for you, you just don’t know it.

The Asshole Has Yet To Die

Dear Rainbow Bright, I’ll be honest, when I first saw you the only thing that popped into my head was how difficult it must be to pick out your clothes so that they match your rainbow coloured hair. That and why the hell would anyone colour their hair and dress the way that you do. But after my “cooler than you” finally took a seat, I wondered how many people’s day you brightened simply by gracing them with your presence (which I’m assuming is as bright and colourful as your appearance). I often, and by often I mean very often, pride myself in the fact that I am a completely different person than the immature, selfish, arrogant asshole I used to be. Truth is, I have lot of work to do yet and I’m sorry it took a few laughs from a 3rd story window at your expense to realize that. Don’t let anyone change the way you express yourself and your beautiful personality; especially assholes like me. – Dave
