A Letter to You...

An inspiring email which I received many years ago:

My dear friend,

As you got up this morning, I watched you and hoped you would talk to me,
even if it was just a few words, asking my opinion or thanked me for
something good that happened in your life yesterday, but i noticed you were
too busy trying to find the right outfit to put on and wear to work. So I
waited. When you ran around the house getting ready, I knew there would be a
few minutes for you to stop and say hello, but you were too busy. At one
point you had to wait fifteen minutes with nothing to do except sit in a
chair. Then I saw you spring to your feet, I thought you wanted to talk to
me, but you ran to the phone and called a friend to get the latest gossip.

I watched you as you went to work and I waited patiently all day long. With
all your activities I guess you were too busy to say anything to me. I
noticed that before lunch you looked around, maybe you felt embarrassed to
talk to me, that is why you didn't bow your head. You glanced three or four
tables over and you noticed some of your friends talking to me briefly
before they ate, but you didn't. That's okay, there is still more time left,
and I hope that you will talk to me even yet.

You went home and it seems as you had lots of things to do. After a few of
them were done you turned on the TV. I don't know if I like TV or not, just
about anything goes there and you spend a lot of time each day in front of
it, not thinking about anything else - just enjoying the show. I waited
patiently a gain as you watched TV and ate your meal, but again you didn't
talk to me. As you did your housework I waited again, as you did what you
had to do. At bedtime I guess you felt too tired. After you said goodnight
to your family you plopped into bed and fell asleep in no time. That's okay,
because you may not realise that I am always there for you.

I've got patience more than you will ever know. I love you so much that I
wait everyday for a nod, a prayer, a thought or a thankful part of your
heart. It is hard to have a one-sided conversation.

Well, you are getting up again and once again I will wait with nothing but
love for you hoping that today you will give me some time.

Have a nice day.
