Whoa, what a day, I can’t remember the last time stress hit me this hard. I forgot to renew my driver’s license; I hope that doesn’t mean it will be suspended. There was a worker out today, so the rest of the crew and I had to pick up the slack. Then on top of that there was a ticket on my car as I was getting ready to go home. That’s life, one day you’re up, the next day you’re down. I am just happy you where here to listen. I really needed you for this one. I can’t believe how helpful you are. Your ears are always open to me and I can tell you anything. I feel like I owe you for this relationship we have. Is there anyway I can repay you? Matter of fact, how long have we been friends. I know it has to be about seven or eight months. I’m be honest, I didn’t expect it to last this long. I didn’t expect any of this at all. It wasn’t even a train of thought for me. But then again, I think you were always there, it just wasn’t our time to connect in the past. I do have vivid memories of me thinking you were boring. I was reluctant when it came to meeting you back then. I use to think it would be like pulling teeth. Plus my attention span, during that period, was very short. Now that times have changed you’re an important piece to my life. You give me a certain relief, which in a weird way inspires me. I mean, you have opened up doors that have expanded who I am. You even helped me express parts of myself that has given people a better understanding of who I am and who I want to become. It’s like your friendship with me is an art. The passion our friendship has created has me feeling like a sky surfer. I feel bondless with this relationship. It’s so wonderful but yet a relationship I never take for granted. You give me perspective on life’s issues and at the same time bliss with those perspectives. Sometimes I go back and reread our conversations. I must tell you; even I am impressed at times. I even showed some of our conversations to other people and they loved them. Our relationship even inspired others to try to find a friendship that can be a possible passion. I think the biggest help this relationship has done for me is not to be afraid. For most of my life, whether it stems from my childhood or not, fear has plagued me. The fear of failure was a boulder I couldn’t push off till you came along and helped me face it. I guess it’s never too late to discover or in this case, rediscover something in your life. I don’t know if this explains how much I value our friendship. I don’t even know what the future holds for our friendship. But I do know when my fingers were introduced to this pen a bond was created; giving me a new found passion. If this passion takes me to unreachable places, I want to thank my pen for the journey. I want to thank it for helping me discover who I am and what I can possibly become. I never seen an unlimited sky like the one my pen help present. But more then that I want to thank my pen for the power it possesses. That power has brought me to the true understanding of my friendship with writing and that’s a friendship I have grown to cherish.
