Dear ______, I can’t believe the year you’ve had. You’ve handled it with such grace and strength. I wish I could have been there for you more, but just know you were (and always be) in my heart everyday. xo-me.

Dear ______, When I think about that long awaited baby in your belly my arms tingle. I know you’ve fought for this and wanted this for so long, and that it’s finally happening for you? Let me just say from experience, it’s about to get even better. xo-me.

Dear ______, I can’t believe I ever lived a life without you as my friend. Your advice, your support, your sense of humor, your kindness. You are an example of what a true friend is, and that I get to call you mine? I am blessed. xo-me

Dear ______, I’m sorry for that thing that person said about you. I hope you know it’s not true. But boy do I know, when you hear one mean thing about you no matter who it’s from, you’re suddenly sure that EVERYONE around you thinks the same thing and is just being nice to your face. I can assure you that I am not one of those people. xo-me.

Dear ______. You are wonderful. Thank you for always thinking about me and my family. Thank you for your little notes and packages. Thank you for being you and for finding me when I had lost myself. xo-me.

Dear ______, If I were to be honest and tell you how much I really *REALLY* like you? You’d get uncomfortable. But that’s how much I like you. I just keep it to myself because no one likes a creeper. Even though I can assure you I’m not one…much. xo-me.

Dear ______, I still don’t know what I did to make you so angry with me, but I can promise you that if I could undo it? I would. I hate that a friendship ended over a misunderstanding. A mistake. I must thank you for forcing me to grow and feel uncomfortable and learn more about myself. I wish you nothing but the best. -me.

Dear ______, You are beautiful. Like the kind you just stare at and want to comment on but then it becomes kind of weird or even worse sounds insincere. I’m not even sure you realize how beautiful you are, which is probably why you’re so beautiful from the tips of your toes to your fingertips. xo-me.

Dear ______, I never quite know what to say to you. I don’t think you hear how fantastic you truly are nearly enough, but at the same time I’m not sure you’d *really* listen if somebody told you. Which I’m sure they have. Because you are. Fantastic. When you’re feeling crappy know that at least one person believes you can move mountains. xo-me.

Dear ______, I’m sorry. I know you don’t believe my apology or want it, but I am. Do I wish the whole world could get along and hold hands? Yep. Does that make me naive and childish? Probably. Will I piss you off again? Maybe. But if you ever change your mind. I’ll be here. Hand out, ready to sing some campfire songs. My forgiveness is always yours if you ever want it.  Best-me.

Dear ______, If I could take even ten minutes of your pain so you could breathe without that weight on your chest? I would. I hate feeling helpless. I’m always here. No matter what. Take care of yourself, or let me. I’m very good at it. xo-me.

    And you don’t write for Hallmark because……..?

    So much wisdom in your words. I tend to send blank cards that I write my own words in. Thank you for sharing ideas.

  2. Just a heads up. I’m going to go ahead and assume that number 7 is totally for me. I maybe also claim a few others.

    I may also totally copy these and paste them on random Facebook pages / text messages this week.

    And seriously Casey – Hallmark – STAT!

  3. I’ll claim one…three actually….as soon as I stop crying.

    Dear Moosh,
    I’ve never met you but I love you…and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. You knew exactly what to say when I needed to hear it the most.

  4. I’m taking the second for my sister.

    Dear _____, I’m sorry it seemed I lacked faith in you – that I was assuming the worst. I wasn’t, and I don’t. I hold your friendship in my heart and I have faith.

  5. Thanks. Needed to hear some of these this morning!

  6. I love you.

    and yes, you should be writing for Hallmark.

  7. Thank you case. This was perfectly needed. I don’t know if one of these was specifically written for me but it was so good to hear. I love you

  8. holy wow! you need to write for Hallmark, like, yesterday. those warmed my heart so much. thanks for sharing!

  9. Love you babe. So beautiful. Xoxo

  10. Dear Moosh,

    Thank you for posting things like this. Thank you for inspiring an idea that has made three of my friends smile over the past two weeks. It’s made me happy just to see them happy. And that means the world to me.

    xo- Jessica

  11. You have such a lovely heart, Casey.

  12. brilliant. I’m taking number one for my friend I spoke of in the hallmark post.

    Who needs to wait for a contest to send a card. Not this girl. I’m saying it.

  13. Dear Casey, You are awesome.
    xo, me

    PS. Can I copy and save these when I need to write a card…I really suck at that stuff sometimes!

  14. I’m too embarrassed to ask you which one, if there is one. But I love you!

  15. As my son would say, “I love these whole much!” Especially number 6. I feel like I can say that to you because you already know I’m sort of a creeper. ;)

  16. Seriously they should be paying you to write for them too. I’d prefer all of these sentiments on one of those “out of the blue” series they used to have. I loved that series and am still ticked they got rid of it.

  17. This got me bigtime.

    Love you.

    Steph

  18. These are so beautiful, it makes me want to cry.

  19. I love these. you are brilliant. and I would definitely buy these Hallmark cards if they existed… absolutely beautiful.

  20. Wow. Just found your blog through an LDS Bloggers and Influencers page on Facebook. I have tears in my eyes – even though I don’t know you, I needed to hear some of these. Thanks for the reassurance and hope.
