Linked with Kate Motaung today!
If it’s Friday, it must be five minute free write! Today’s word prompt is:
dear…ready, set, go:
My first thought was of my mom. She probably wrote the word “dear” more than anyone I know – because, you see, she was a letter writer. She wrote letters to everyone. I still have some and now that she is gone I treasure her big, scrawly, cursive writing. She lived her weeks in order to have material to put in letters. And, every letter included a weather report. My mom was a “dear” – a true character!
Isn’t it odd that we would write a letter to someone we don’t even know by calling them, Dear Sir or Dear Madam. Are they truly a “dear”? They might be the most miserable person on the planet and we have just addressed them as “Dear”. Weird. It’s almost like saying, “Good Grief.” Is there anything good about grief? You get my drift.
Think of all the times Abby was called “Dear” – I hope she was.
And, Dear Reader, thank you for reading my rambling this morning….you truly are…
