She had sat down to write this letter many times before, and each time given up before putting pen to paper. This time, she decided to write before she could think.

The feelings flooded out effortlessly. Anger, sadness, pride, and relief. She was on her thirds page when she realized she was crying.

Three tears fell in big fat drops successively on the words “like family,” distorting the hastily scribbled letters into watery tendrils. Though her hand starting aching, she continued on.

Finally, she signed her name, put the letter in an envelope, and threw it in the recycling bin.
