A few weeks ago, I wrote about a huge regret I had, losing my best friend Amber. For those that didn’t read that post, you can catch up here.
I mailed the card out and basically tried to put it out of my head. I figured one of three scenerios could come of it:
- Amber could not give me any reply, in which case I’d be okay with it and at least be happy with the fact that I tried to repair our friendship.
- Amber could reply in a negative way. Although this isn’t really her style I did try to prepare myself for it nonetheless (and I tend to be a glass half empty kind of girl so for me it was a possibility).
- Amber could reply back in a positive way.
Well. Last night I came home to a really pretty card from Amber. In it she wrote:
Hi Krysten ~
Thanks so much for the warm wishes – it was very nice of you to send a card. I too am sorry things ended the way they did. I hope you & Dustin are doing well & enjoying life in River Falls. Jono and I have been doing well & Annabelle (their new baby) has been amazing. We are very much looking forward to our new lives as parents. Hope you are well =-)
Definitely nice. And honestly, I was worried coming home to open the card. So it’s a good thing.
But… now what? I actually don’t have Amber’s number anymore and even if I did, I’m really not a phone person. I always feel awkward on it and this feels like one of those situations in which the phone just wouldn’t work. So do I leave it at that? Do I write a letter? Do I ask if she’d like to get together for lunch sometime?
I feel so unsure. As I’ve mentioned, Amber was a good friend for a very long time. I would love to meet up with her again and even if we can’t get to the closeness we once had I would love to see her. But… I seriously feel jitters! Like I’m asking a boy on a date or something!
What would you all do? Would you write back? Would you include your phone number? Would you ask her to lunch?
