Friday's Letters

It's a Friday and it seemed like a good morning for some letter writing.  Nothing like expressing to your heart's desire.  Here goes.........

Dear 2015....please slow down!  We are already 4 1/2 months into you and it seems like it ought to be no later than February 1st.

Dear Cancer....you are just awful, awful!  You have stricken so many precious friends of mine.  Some have beat you and some have not.  I pray daily that very, very soon there will be a cure for any and all types of you.

Dear PBS....I'm not sure how I feel about there being only one more season of Downton Abbey but I'm sure you will come out with another equally as good program in 2016.  I can't help but wonder if the last season will have as much drama as this past season.  It was over the top with drama!

Dear Weight Watchers....your Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Sundae is the BEST night time snack and all for only 140 calories.

Dear New House....you are taking a really l-o-n-g time to finish. But, I know you will be so worth it in the end, but if you could speed up just a tad, we'd be so happy. 

Dear Disney....you outdid yourself on the production of Cinderella.  What a great movie!  It had a great lesson, super special effects, wonderful acting, and beautiful costuming.  Yep! it received 5 stars from me.

Dear Week-end....I'm looking forward to some special time with our family.  Our daughter and grandson are coming in for a quick visit, but any time we can all be together is a special time.  This will be Bridget's first time to meet our precious Andi Kate.  She has a real treat in store!

Dear Dining Chairs....I can hardly wait to see what you look like with your newly covered seats.  I love the fabric and know you will look like brand new chairs. It's just a little facelift for the new house.

Dear ThredUp.com....I will give you a 4 star rating as an online consignment shop.  I sent you 3 bags of clothing and you paid me a very good price for them.  I love that you sent me the bags to put my clothes in and you pay for them to be mailed to you and then you pay me upfront for the items you keep.  And, with my permission, anything you do not keep you donate to charity. I will be using you again in the future.

Dear LikeTwice.com....Unlike ThredUp, I will not be using you again for consigning my clothes.  Your payout for the great clothes I sent you was embarrassingly low.   You did send cute postage paid bags to send the clothes in but I was not happy with your payout.  Sorry!

Dear Daddy....I continue to hope and pray that you are going to get some improvement in your eyesight as a result of your cataract surgery.  I know you had high hopes and as of yet, there has been no improvement and that makes me sad.  In fact, right now, you are probably seeing worse than you ever have.  Hopefully when I take you back in 3 weeks you can be fitted for glasses that will give you some improvement.

Dear Presidential Candidates....I cannot believe that you have already started campaigning for an election not to be held until Nov. 2016.  All I can say is that I pray our country has the sense to elect a person that will get us on the right track or at least put forth an effort to do so.  Meanwhile, we'll endure!

Dear Readers of my Blog....thank you for giving of your time to read my writing.  I do not take that for granted and I appreciate it so.  Your kind comments are what make each entry worth my time and effort.  You are the BEST!!!!

  1. Hi Lea! Have you watched Mr. Selfridge on PBS? I think it is just as good, if not better. Have a great weekend with your family.

  4. I know ... how is it possible that we are 2/3 of the way through April already? I'm with you ... it feels like it ought to be no later than some time in February for sure ... not that I'm complaining. I'm glad to be done with winter ... and am glad to be just 3 weeks from leaving for Hilton Head. But still ...
