VOF Love Letter to my Mentor

Dear Mentor:
Although I do not know you, I do know love. So I will tell you why, even though I do not know who you are, I love you.
Love is nurturing, like we will surely be to each other in our journey through this stage.
Love is caring, as in the way I promise to care for you from the moment we begin.
Love is tender, as I know you will be when you need to guide me through my mistakes.
But what would love be without the passion, the spark, the lust for more? I promise, my dear mentor, to show all this in my writing so that everyone can feel my feelings, dance my dances and share my hush moments vividly.
My kind of love for you, as you will soon find out, is hectic and full of laughter, because when I get nervous I prefer to laugh and continue than to stop and cry. Searching for the answers, looking for truth, standing by the side of the ones who need me, that is where I wish to find the fountain of my inspiration, and in the ocean of our mutual love and understanding is where I hope to find the right path to the achievement of my best writer self.
For all of these and much, much more, I want to tell you my dear mentor, you are very welcome to join me and lead me in the right direction. I promise to not let you down and make every assignment of this stage, a memorable form of love.

Hi Khushbu

Nice hearing from you. Did I ever tell you how happy I am that you are here? Congratulations sister!

Yes I have sent it some time ago already. I just was not 'into it' to post it here. Now I am happier and more willing to dive into posting, so I decided to show my letter to all of you.

Warmly,

Jackie

Oops, didn't realize it was posted here too since I followed the first link that took me to the fans one. Like I said there, I do like it, very nice!

I am so glad you are feeling happier! I wonder what our next mini-assignment will be, any ideas?

I thought your letter was very touching and showed how you plan to grow as both a writer and a leader.

Thanks Maria

I thought it would be a good idea to share this with the group and see what kind of ideas we can gather from this.

I am glad you like it. I am Ok now, standing on my feet, ready for the fight, thanks to your warming care for me. It really helped me to write a poem. Believe it or not, I actually could do it.

Hugs,

Jackie
