I hope we will be friends, but I admit I’m a skeptic. It is important that I let you know just how terrified you make me feel. The next twelve months hold many changes for me, and I’m not sure I’m nearly grown up enough, much less excited enough, to face them all. I just thought I’d let you know up-front, I’m entering this acquaintance full of trepidation and with my guard firmly in place. My prayer is that throughout the coming months you’ll change my heart.
I hope I have your understanding and cooperation.
I went on a hike with my funny people, got my first free Starbucks of the month, read Lord of the Rings, and pondered my impending doom… now less than 25 short days away.
