weekends like that make me want to be a better friend. to write more letters, call more often, and let less time go between visits. relationships are work and i can certainly do more of it on my end.
i talk to my dad every morning and i never forget to call my grandparents on sundays, but sometimes i let emails from friends pile up or take longer to respond than i would like. i don't love that about myself and august is the month that i am going to work on that.
in the meantime, thank you all for being here, sweet friends. you bring so much goodness to my life and make my world feel full. i am glad of you.
