I hope you are doing well. Does that sound weird?

Is it okay to make inquiries about your well being and wish you well? l also want you to know I am thankful for your blessings.

My worrying is not meant as an act of disrespect.

As you know, I come by it honestly, an inheritance from a long line of worriers who worried about everything.

And at the same time I feel that I should be more content and happier because I am an adult who has acquired the wisdom, common sense and maturity to know you love me unconditionally.
