Tuesdays Letters

I thought I’d take some time on this Tuesday night, to write a few fun letters (because who does that anymore?), set to some random and very blue pictures that I came across from our last trip to Europe.  So here goes:

Dear Random Pictures from Europe,

You’re lovely.  And I’m glad I came across you.  I’m so thankful that we got to visit such amazing places and I’ll never forget the memories that we made.


Dear Powerhouse Gym,

Thanks for a great workout tonight.  It was much needed.  I was concerned when the class schedule changed because I was quite comfortable in my regular gym routine, but it looks like everything is going to work out just fine.  Sometimes change is good.  And since my legs are already sore, it’s good to know that I’ll continue to get stronger and healthier while having fun and working out with friends.


Dear Anxiety,

I need a break from you.  I spent a lot of time with you last week, but it just didn’t really do much for me.  You take a lot of time and energy and don’t really give anything back in return.  I’m going to work on trusting more and worrying less.  Just thought I’d let you know.


Dear Christmas KitKat on my desk,

Even though half of you tasted so good, I’m now filled with regret.  I mean, who even eats a Christmas KitKat, twenty days into the new year?  I’m ashamed.  While I’m working hard to let go of my anxiety, I should probably grab and hold on a little tighter to some self control.  Even though I shouldn’t, if I were to blame anyone, it would be the gym, because now that I’m working out a little more, I find myself really hungry all the time.  Either way, that’s no excuse to eat old candy bars that just happen to be sitting on my desk.


And finally,

Dear The Rest of This Week,

I’m excited for you.  I’m excited for Hangtime tomorrow, I’m excited for Youth Group on Thursday and I’m excited to work out some more on Thursday and Friday with any friends who should happen to want to join me for the morning classes.  All in all, I’m going to try to work hard to enjoy life, just as it comes.  To enjoy the busy times and to enjoy the peaceful moments that come in between.

Thanks so much,

Laura Herr
