Today’s letters go out to two women in need of a little boost! One letter was requested by a loving sister, and the other by a devoted daughter. Isn’t family the just the best?

one hundred and eight:
Your sister bragged about your recent thirty-pound weight loss—holy, holy, look at you! That is so amazing. I know that kind of lifestyle change takes serious discipline. I heard mumblings about a new hair do too! You hot mama! Kelsey and Justin are lucky kiddos. And can we just talk about you and your adorable high-school sweetheart Ralph? I love that you two have stayed together all these years (my parents were high school sweethearts too). You should be so proud of yourself and all you’ve accomplished! I know your sister is (+ me too, even if we’re strangers!).
All the best,
one hundred and eight-in-a-half:
Your daughter Rachel told me about your husband’s health—I am so very sorry. And then she told me all about your Wonder Woman efforts to support your family. I am awed. I hope you know how much your family appreciates all the sacrifices you make. They think you’re pretty darn great. And so do I!
I’m crossing my fingers thing improve on the work front, and that your husband recovers. I have to imagine your days are long and often thankless. But please know your family loves you so much. And stranger in New York is cheering you on!
All the best,
