A letter from a friend

Looking into my perpetually empty pigeon hole after lunch today gave me a pleasant surprise. It seems that it is not so perpetually empty after all. I have a letter!

From the envelope and the handwriting, I recognized the sender's warmth and childlike playfulness harbored within the envelope. I smiled to myself. I see, she refuse to wait for me to return home. She is impatient. I guess it's all my fault that I left our friendship floating in the empty sea. But I did left an address. I guess that's how the letter reach my pigeon hole.

Reading the letter made me smile even more. She hasn't change, still the same as before. Clueless and innocent. She lamented that I did not send her any letter  and that I only communicate to her through the Internet. The reason she prefer writing letters instead of emailing or IM-ing is that she is lazy and its inconvenient for her to go online. I don't know what to say. That's the exact reason for me not to write letters.

With the letter, she attached a badge of which she called it a pin-tag. With the badge, is a bible verse. John 3:16. A verse I am very familiar with. One of the first verse I knew. A verse I recently talk to Fei Fan about. Amazed.


Silly child, why would I hate a gift from a friend?

For God loved us so much that He sent His one and only son that whoever believe in Him shall not Perish but have eternal life - John 3:16
That's sweet.. I wish someone writes to me too... My mailbox is always empty since the first day I came here except some citibank statements which are not fun receiving..
