    • heart Dearest Ruby,

      This letter is one of the hardest for me due to the fact that you were my very first friend on fab. Your phone calls brought me out of very dark places in the beginning.
      You are a wonderful mother of three boys and what you have shown them and done for each of them is a greater strength of character than I will ever have.
      Your a gracious soul, with class and dignity that knows no bounds.
      When I got your letter .... I cried because I’m so ashamed of not following through on a promise I made to you. Yet, here you are caring about me still.
      I never understood in the beginning the constant pain you live with because well I didn’t at the time to be honest. Yet u were always worried about me....
      I think to be honest when I started getting iller I kept your grace in my mind and knew that was what type of woman I wanted to be remembered as.
      In order to to do this letter and you justice I must own my mistake so Please understand why I do....
      I’m so not proud of this and I’m not asking for forgiveness but no one will understand unless I own what I did. So here goes:
      I promised you things I didn’t deliver and I have them to this day... It’s not because I couldn’t it was because I put my own selfish needs first even known that you needed them .... Yet, u forgave me once and I did it again.... I’m ashamed but I own it yet then out of the blue a letter arrives in the mail from you worried about ME....
      What a beautiful heart you have. What graciousness and kindness....
      Your a very quite soul until your pissed lol and fierce omg fierce for the people you love you will go thru hell and back for them. And then stand back , smiling not wanting anyone to notice you.
      Like your issues of life are not important then.... But they are because you make even the person that owes you an apology a priority above yourself.
      The tears in my eyes right now are because of your witty , loving sence of humor. The pride you have in raising your boys is breathtaking to me.
      I can only inspire to be that mom.
      I love you
      That’s all I’ll say here Thank you for showing me how not to be selfish.

      Love it
