Dear sense of humor,
I just wanted to get a few things off my chest.
I consider you to be one of the best things that’s ever happened to me, and you should know that. In fact, I couldn’t imagine life without you.
I’m grateful I found you so early in my life, and that you’ve remained such a big part of it today.
Thank you for always being there, even though at times I couldn’t reach out and instead, tried to go it alone.
Please forgive me for turning my back on you now and then, there were times when I just couldn’t keep in touch.
You’ve made me who I am today, and can only hope ours is a long and lasting relationship. You’ve helped me stare seriousness in the face, you’ve lightened my step, you’ve shaped my perspective.
You’ve never had a sharp word to say, and I appreciate that. You’ve grown with me, shared life moments but have demanded nothing from me.
I love the fact I can take you anywhere. I’ve never been afraid of introducing you to anyone, even strangers. People seem to take to you right away; you have a knack for making everyone feel at ease.
At times, you’ve been a bit off-color, but I’ve always loved that about you.
You’ve been a very important part of my life. I couldn’t have gotten this far without you, and I wouldn’t trade you for the world. I hope you’ve never felt taken for granted.
I am your biggest fan, so please don’t plan on going anywhere. I’m going to need you just as much, if not more, as I grow older. I will be looking for you as I notice the wrinkles and the joint pain, and most certainly during my conversations with my reflection in the mirror. In fact, you may not have a moment’s peace.
Take care old friend, I’ll see you soon…
