As I hike up the hill, I look off to the right and an envelope catches my eye. I think “Ha! Someone lost their electric bill!” I’m curious. I walk over and pick it up. Definitely not an electric bill. It’s a plain envelope, not sealed, and plainly labeled “Cody”. There’s no one around for miles. I open the envelope. It’s a letter and a picture.
I know we both made choices that weren’t great. But it’s ok. I will always have a little piece of us. My decision to keep her was my choice, and your choice to move on was yours. I’m sorry you never got to know her. Every time I look in her eyes, it’s like looking into yours. Her name is Elizabeth and she is amazing.
I fold it up, tuck the picture and letter back in the envelope. I wonder which one dropped it?
