(8) Just a chance that maybe we'll find better days... (8)

Hey friends. I encourage you to read Kyle and Nick's posts tonight. I'm confident that they have great things to say to you.

This is what I have to say to you. Me, myself. This is Christopher Thatcher. Here I stand.

Hey friends. There's something about this song that sends me into a totally different mood and mindset. No matter how things were a minute ago, this song turns on and I'm suddenly contemplative and open to everything.

This openness is rare. It only manifests itself when I'm listening to this song or up having a conversation with someone I feel really close to really late at night. Openness is good, the truth will set you free, right?

I know that, but it still doesn't stop me from being pretty closed with my emotions. It's rare that I'll tell girls how I actually feel about them. I can tell my close guy friends how I think of them, but it's hard to open up and express that to the ladies.

But, on the rare occasions that I do open up, interesting things happen.

Bah, can the eloquent language, it's too slow. That's the garbage can version of can anyways.

There's been more talk about girls than usual throughout the blogs. Me, Nick, Kyle, everybody. There are reasons for this, but they're not that secret. It's just been too long, that's all.

I'm really having a tough time saying this. But I think that it needs to be said. Here goes try number three, wish me luck.

If you girls honestly knew the way things really were, things'd be different.

I'm not saying I'm madly in love with anybody. I'm just saying that the truth is really good to you girls.

Because honestly, somewhere out there you've got someone who cares about you like you wouldn't believe. Someone who really hopes that you're doing alright, someone who wonders how your day has been. Someone who won't forget you, someone who wants to stand outside the front door of your life and fight all the bad things that want to get at you so you don't have to.

It is certain - beyond any doubt - that this someone loves you. Maybe they're in love with you, but chances are you're their precious little sister, or daughter, or maybe even mother.

The fine gentlemen of this world are crazy about you. You mean so much to them. They won't tell you this often. Maybe they'll never ever say it.

But they're out there, we're out there.

If you could really see the truth, things would be different.

I wonder if this made any sense. Here is my proclamation for the evening - 100% openness. If you feel like talking tonight, here I stand. Let's talk.

Good song.

Some things need doing. I'm going to do it. I said I would, and I'm going to. I won't let you down on this one. I gave my word, and I won't take it back.

Friends, thanks for coming here tonight. I don't know what this means to everybody, but I do appreciate it. I really do hope that you are all alright tonight. I hope that you're all happy, but I do not wish a fool's joy on you. I wish for you an abundance of reasons to be happy. I hope that you'll face challenges, but that you'll overcome with strength. I hope you'll still appreciate the beauty of God's earth, and the magnificence of your own self. I pray that things will work out for you, that you'll be able to follow your dreams.

The truth is very nice to you friends. Don't ever forget that, even if the truth is too special to share all that often.

Good luck everybody. You have unlimited potential and possibility in front of you, and an eternity of progression behind you. You are here now, facing the next step with courage. You have a noble and great purpose. Don't forget who you are, or where you came from.

We're all in this together. We're all going to make it through together. You're special.

You're amazing, and someone out there loves you. That's the truth.

We do care. Honestly. This guy's got it right.

We should be more open, but how would we feel if we were rejected? Crappy. Therefore, total nondisclosure policy on all emotions.

But we do care, take solace in that fact. We can be your umbrella against the world, if only you let us.

Wow, that sounds UNBELIEVABLY corny. Please, girls, disregard that comment. Stricken from the record.

Thatcher, you have done it again. Way to use scripture references. The Truth really will set us free!

I couldn't have said it better myself. Girls, there's always someone who cares, no matter who you are or what's going on. I can't name all of you who I care for, and there's plenty of guys who feel the same. God made you special. Take heed, ladies.
