Dear Monday- it’s a bitter sweet day. My sister’s birthday is today… sweet. It’s day one after closing a chapter in my life… bitter. Oh Monday, even after months of not paying homage to you, I can still say I hate you as much as I did the day I took a hiatus from writing.
Dear Miranda Lambert- Thank you for writing the songs that you do. I still turn to your music on tough days. Dear Diamond…you shine like the sun.
Dear Career- Thank you for devouring my entire life. Heaven forbid you let me keep any piece of me.
Dear Lady on The Plane- I know you think I am a nut case. It’s ok. Even on my blowfish puffy face days, I am cuter than you. Go back to pinning that dress that was so not made for your body type.
Dear Airport- I bet you are pretty proud of me for getting their with some room to spare. Rare I know. Something in me today just said that I needed to be on time. It was nice to slow down for once.
Dear BBJ and Wifey- I am proud of both of you for not letting people get in the way of your dreams. Keep on truckin’ ladies. You are both making strides!
Dear Bring Me Down- I still love you. You were my first country audition song. “Baby baby bring me down, you can look me in the eye and break my heart.” Johnny High Music Revue…oh the memories
Dear Lady on the Plane Take Two- Ok so maybe you do have a right to think I am crazy. I’m freezing on this damn plane and have resorted to pulling clothes out of my bag to keep warm. NO not a jacket. I could only hope for that. I layered myself up. Blue jean shorts on my lap. Button up on my lap. I’m sure I look psycho.
Dear SeaShells- I’m on my way to the shore to sell you. I’m looking for a new life and hanging by the seashore seems like a splendid idea.
Dear Country Girl in Me- I want to buy a ranch with horses. Lots of wide and open space so I can breathe. These city walls and confines of a plane leave me feeling suffocated and yearning for a bit of simplicity.
Dear Friday- I am dreaming this week away. You tell me what I want to be when I grow up. So far wife and mother don’t look too promising, so give me a plan B please. If it weren’t Monday at 7:22 am, I would say we can discuss it over a little whiskey. “You can’t love yourself at the expense of someone else.”- Miranda Lambert
