this post brought to you by the letter that i wrote

Today, I wrote an envelope.

It was readable.

I’m sure it looks like it was written by a seven year old on crystal meth, but I WROTE IT.

And, Dude, I’m mailing it.

There’s this part that knows mailman will laugh when they see it. They’ll get a chuckle from the handwriting on the envelope.

Or maybe they’ll just think it’s a kid writing a letter.

Which is ok too.

I’m forcing myself to send the letter that I wrote.  I could have my husband write it for the receiver’s sake, but I’ll hope they understand.

I won’t lie.

I’m just proud it’s the first thing that might be read by someone else.  It may not look good.  It may not be the best letter ever.

But I guarantee few letters have been labored over and contemplated more.

    If people will pay thousands of dollars for a painting autographed by a dog, I dont’ see why you couldn’t make an enormous personal profit (or a sizable donation to charity) selling ENVELOPES PERSONALLY ADDRESSED BY ANISSA. Maybe? Because I would totally buy one.

    If you need the practice, I’ll gladly send you my address! I am all *bummer* lately and your inspiration is NOM! This is so very awesome.

    If I had been in your shoes, I might have been tempted to frame it ’cause that is a pretty major step on the recovery road!

    An Anissa original! That’s what that is! You have proven that with hard work and “Anissa determination” you can kick your brain back into line. If anyone can do that, it is YOU!

    Saying I am proud of you just seems like such small words compared to what I really am but don’t have words for because I have watched people come back from what seemed like the impossible. That is what you are doing. You are coming back from what seems so far from impossible and you are making such huge strides. That envelope going through the postal service is a miracle and it is a lot of hard work and determination from you!

    Keep moving forward Anissa. Nothing is impossible:)

    Love, Tracy Solomon

    You have written me checks for cleaning and your handwritting left handed is better than mine.

    You amaze me to no end! I don’t know you, nor you I, but… Girlfriend I am very proud of you!!!

    I want to send you envelopes!

    WAIT one MINUTE! Does that mean the right hand is working enough to write or that you’ve trained your left? Dooooood. Either way, I’m so friggin happy for you!

    I want an envelope from Anissa! To prove to myself that I’m not the only adult who is proud of writing an envelope. And just for the record your envelope will arrive at its intended recipient…mine always have :) Thankfully, I have not seen a Postal Service label saying “Return to Sender: Written by 7 year old on crystal meth”


    I’ll let you know if I do!

    For now, be proud and be strong.

    Postal Service strong!

      Well, the letter itself is pretty boring, but the envelope?….let’s just say no one will ever have an envelope like it again.
