Best friends and long distance
My best friends (who are more like sisters) live 3,000 miles away. We grew up next door to each other and rarely spent more than a week a part. Since graduating college, getting married, and temporarily settling in California we're lucky if we see each other twice a year.
Over the months spent a part, we've sent each other little surprises in the mail to the let the other know they haven't been forgotten.
Yesterday I got this in the mail. It was a simple card with a little message. But it came among a slew of medical bills and test results, so the timing couldn't have been better.
Relationships of any kind take work, kindness, and thoughtfulness. If you have a good friend miles away, send them a little something to let them know you're thinking of them. It will undoubtedly make their day.
And all it takes is a stamp.
