To my sorrority executive board

Hi Elizabeth :)
I am addressing this letter to you, and to exec as whole.
I see that the date party is postponed, and that it is out of your control.  That reminded me of something I already know.  Exec works so hard for Pi Phi.  Little details that never even cross my mind can make or break something.  Your dedication amazes me. So much planning and coordination goes into pretty much everything we do.  It is clear that all the work you do is done with care, love, and Pi Phi values.  I am so proud of our Pi Phi leaders, and our sisterhood as a whole.  I am truly honored to call you all sisters.  I really appreciate all the effort you guys put into our organization.
Thank you so much!!!

Laura <3

Hey Meghan,
I am sure you knew that this was only a matter of time. I am so freaking happy that in the past year we have become so close.  Sometimes, I feel almost like we are siblings.  We work so well together.  You really help me a lot, not just academically, but with personal things too.  Thank you for being there for me, thank you for laughing at my corny jokes, thank you for being my study buddy, and most importantly, thank you for being a friend.
I love you,

“Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others.”


Why I started

Today, I was browsing through Facebook.  A friend of mine posted an article, "102 Things You Should Really Give Up for Lent."  Being that I always look to give something up that challenges me in some way, I clicked on it.  Truth be told, it was not actually my cup tea. But I did follow up with the link in article's description, and I am quite glad I did.  As a matter of fate (by the Grace of God if you rather), my eyes skipped to #8.
