I hope you’re happy. I hope I’m not too scared of the future that I ruin things for you. I hope you’re not full of regret.
I hope you’ve taken advantage of being out of the house to write letters and send care packages to people you may not have met IRL yet. I hope you have met at least one person from a friendship created through the internet.
I hope you’re not bitter about her anymore. I hope you have a job in computer science, or if you’ve changed your mind, that you’re happy with whatever you’re doing. I hope it’s making a difference in the world.
I hope you still create. I hope you still sit down with a formless ball of yarn and a crochet hook, and end up with something beautiful hours later. I hope you’ve figured out how to be more organized about all that.
I hope you’ve learned how to empathize, rather than just sympathize. I hope you still welcome a conversation when you don’t talk, and I hope you’ve learned that sometimes you have to talk, and that it’s okay to open up.
I hope you’ve kicked the fingernail biting habit.
I hope you never fall out of love with stories.
I hope for the best for you, and I hope my present will support your future.
