23: The Last Person I Made a Pinky Promise To

Dear Kita,

I love the sacred oath that is the pinky promise. Once those two small fingers become intertwined, you know the other person will guard that secret with their life. It is a deposit into the bank of friendship, where there is no overdraft protection; so when you make a withdrawal, you better make sure you can cover it.

Your credit is good.

I wish I could guess just how many text messages we have sent or how many FB messages we have composed. My best estimate is “a whole bunch.” In every conversation, we have shared secrets—our hopes and dreams for the future; storms we are facing at this very moment; past hurts with scars that like to reopen every now and again. I think we feel the same way, for I know I do not share these thoughts with just anyone. My confidante has to be someone with my best interests at heart, and I believe that is you.

So, as we continue to traverse this path, I hope you know you can trust me. I will continue to lift you up in prayer and I know you’ll do the same for me. Though neither one of us knows what the middle chapters look like, we already know the ending: we win.

Your secret is safe with me.

Love You To Life,
