A lovely note from a friend via email

"Hello Molly

Thank you for coming to my birthday celebration. We met fifteen years ago and you still looked very much the same. It is truly amazing how you have maintained your youth and beauty and keep it, my dear.

Many of my friends at the party did not believe that you are almost half a century old. Anyway age is just a figure to remind us of the year we are born for documentation purposes only! Always remember as the days tick away we fill our lives with joy and happiness all the way.

You have grown in wisdom and your sharing had touched many of us on how you managed to overcome your depression. It is a great lesson that many of us had benefited from your generous sharing. I am surprised that you managed to discern of an incident concerning my personal self in a very logical way. Thank you for giving me that assurance and it was an eye opener which I did not see.

Well I hope that from now on we can be on better footing because I am also in your same situation. I could understand that our friendship drifted apart because you and I were on different playing field. Now that we on the same boat, it will be much easier to find more things in common.

When I bumped into you a few months ago, I was a bit apprehensive intially to talk about my shattered dream but somehow I managed to overcome my shame and shared with you about my brokeness.

Well in life we sometimes have to face the harsh realities. By putting on a strong front does not necessarily mean that we are alright instead we carry that useless troublesome burden on our shoulders with stupidity.

When we live in self denial we are not only destroying our soul, it so robs us of our peace of mind. In my pain and distress, I came to realize that letting go with love gives me peace and joy to live a more meaningful life with or without my life partner.

Have beautiful and lovely day and thanks for joining the party.


Christy"
