Letter to J

My four-year old niece had a hard day at school the other day. The Writer shares the store here. It was a painful “first” for our young lady. I know the Writer & the Major have already talked and loved her through her experience. I thought I’d take some time to try to impart some words of wisdom on the subject as well …

Dearest J,

What a sad moment you experienced the other day! You, in your young years, have probably already forgotten it.

I wish that we could all keep the innocence of youth and continue to forgive and move on so easily.

I guess there was something in the air that day because a friend hurt my feelings, too, and I was so upset that I went to the counselor’s office. In tears.

I don’t know why friends do what they do to hurt each other’s feelings and I wish I could say it gets easier as you get older.

Stay young as long as you can, little one! Don’t try to grow up too fast.

Treat other people the way that you want to be treated.

Look for joy in each and every day.

Enjoy each day and laugh, dance, and sing. If you have an audience, cool! If not, cool! If your audience joins in, VERY cool!

Continue to forgive easily and move on.

Be like a duck. When ducks swim around in the water, the water rolls right off their back. Hurt feelings should roll off our’s just the same, right?

And finally, remember you are loved!

~Always, Aunt Lisa
