My Love Letter

 

Dearest heart,

I haven’t been able to stop thinking about you all week. I can’t believe we’ve spent so much time apart.  Yet, we picked back up right where we left off and that has been such a comfort to me.

Thank you for always being there.  For keeping me company when I most need it and always knowing what to say.

I feel bad for having kept you at bay for so long. What was I thinking? My time is consumed by so many other things nowadays.  I think back to the days when it was just you and I. Lazy days spent on the couch or maybe lounging on a beach somewhere.  I can’t wait to get a few of those days in.

I’ve been working hard on school assignments this week and it has been difficult to keep focus. Today I woke up and got started on my homework but you kept popping into my head which is why I stopped to write you this letter hoping it appeases my hunger for you.  All I can think of is getting back to cuddling up with you and continuing the adventure.  And then I feel a little guilty because a couple of times this week I did run to you instead of doing what I was supposed to be doing.  But, can you blame me?

All these years you’ve known me.  All of these years you’ve given me exactly what I needed.  Even those times you’ve made me cry, I’ve gained something from our interaction.  I can tell you that now that I’ve found you again, I won’t let you go.  No matter how busy I get or how crazy things seem to be.  I promise.  Because I love you and I simply cannot imagine a life without you.

with all of my heart,

Sili

PS: Don’t act like I’m the only one that feels this way about books!

You can find me and my reading addiction over at the Read and Play Community for one more week! By the way, how do you use books to ignite your child’s imagination?

  7. Oh yes!! This is how I feel about my books too. I still love my actual books which I refuse to get rid of even though they are taking up large quantities of space in the house. Now I have my kindle which more books loaded on it than I can read but all through the day I longing think of how I can’t wait to get back to that book. You are not alone on this one!!

  8. Oh, amen! How I love books! Lately, I’ve been reading more blogs than books, and editing my own novel, but will so reclaim that heart that I, too, left behind.
    Blessings, Sili!

    I know… lately, I haven’t been able to devote much time to the things I always loved, including reading, but yes, books can be what shape you in a big way. :)
