You have been one of my closest friends for many years and yet lately there have been important things happening in my life that I have kept from you. I can tell you sense that gap, but aren’t quite sure what to make of it. My fear in telling you is not that you won’t continue to be my friend, love me and encourage me, but that you won’t understand and it will frustrate us both. Sometimes I have a hard time even looking you in the eyes for fear you might figure it all out and bluntly ask me. Even then, I’m not sure I would be able to speak the truth but you would know. You know me too well.
