A friend writes that she is blue, and has been reading about gratitude to lift her spirits. 

Dearest friend: You sent me a pink card so special that I have had it pinned above my desk for some time, as a reminder that you are one of the kindest, most giving people I have been blessed to know.

“Once in a while, you find a friend … who’ll be a friend forever,” it says.

Do you recall sending that after your surgery, when pink was the color we all needed to cheer us, knowing that you were hurting, our “forever friend.”

Today, I send you loving thoughts, long-distance hugs, and this e-reminder that meeting you that first day of grad school was one of the best moments of my life.
