Day 24: The person who gave you your favorite memory

“The worst part of holding the memories is not the pain. It’s the loneliness of it. Memories need to be shared.”
Lois Lowry, The Giver

The hiatus was longer than expected. I had one memory, one story and one person in mind but I was just putting things off because things started getting crazy busy. I realized that I need to finish this project soon. It’s almost the end of the year after all.

Dear Partner,

I want you to know that when I look back that 14th night in February, I smile. It was the night I realized how valuable I am in the Lord’s eyes through you. You may not know what you did or even remember what you said but each word that came out of your mouth moved me. As recollected from my memory, you told me that it was such a rare instance to find someone like me. You told me that I was a rare find. It was the first time somebody said those words to me and they affirmed me. You told me to wait on love because it was worth waiting for, to not rush into these things because for a person like me, you were sure that whoever it was, was going to be worth the wait.

Thank you for being a big brother to me. Thank you for our trekking adventures–hiking to the waterfalls. Thank you for the joyride to Sta. Lourdes. Thank you for listening to me and for trusting me with your stories as well. I would like you to know that I am blessed by your life and that I am glad that you’ve found someone who’s worth the search.

I hope and pray that you touch more lives, the way you have touched mine.
