Today's letter is for Tara. She is a young twenty-something seeing her share of hardship these days. Her hands and plate are full and she could use a little less heartbreak and a few more miracles. She is working on getting a degree while taking care of her family. She has a lot on her plate and has been struggling with stress lately. The letters being sent to her hopefully will serve as a reminder that she is not alone in all this and she will get through the trials-safe and stronger.
School and taking care of your family-You are an awesome young woman! Many would buckle under that weight, but you are doing a great job! I know you could use help though so just think of me as an extra pair of arms to carry some of the weight. Whenever it overwhelms take a deep breath and picture a friend there to carry what you can't!
There are times it feels like you are drowning in a sea of frowns-grab onto a smile and let it rescue you from pessimism. I have your name in a journal on my desk and every time I think of you I will draw a happy face. That way there will be plenty of smiles to hold on to!
"A smile is a curve that sets everything straight."~Phyllis Diller
