Rest. Oh, how I need thee. It has been an incredibly busy year, and it probably will not get any less busy anytime soon. I need to find a place for us to spend time together, Rest. I am so sorry that I have neglected you for so long. You promised me that I would be refreshed every time I visit you, but so many things get in the way and cause our distance to increase. You advise me continuously that you are a necessity in my life, but still I decide to overlook your desperate pleas.
I’ll do better, Rest. You can consider that as a promise. Even this letter is a sign of progression, and a revelation of the importance to allow you to massage all my cares away, even if for a moment. I realize from the time I have spent with you in the past that it is amazing. Not only that, but I realized how healthy it is from all the times I have left you.
I cannot allow our distance to prevent me from taking the initiative in coming back to you. My pride has been swallowed as I humbly write this letter in admission to your prudent instruction. You care about me, even when I don’t care about you, and that alone is quite a noble gesture. Repeatedly, you could have just decided to retire from your mission to make me better, especially from all the times that I have rejected you. However, you stood steadfast in your mission, and demanded my attention.
I applaud you for that.
My desire is that you allow this letter to be twofold: first, a sincere apology of my stubborn neglect. Second, an oath that we will spend much more time together, even when there are important things that are setting up hurdles in our relationship. Forgive my excessive yawning and the ongoing exclamation of the two dreadful words “I’m tired,” and have patience with me as I strive to convert those negative feelings into deep relaxing sighs, complete with a smile.
