Nostalgia: LETTERS

3 Jun


It’s Thursday and it’s time for Nostalgia moment! Thanks to Sis Rose for creating this stimulating, inspiring, dramatic, gripping, stirring, thrilling, moving, sensational, rousing, exhilarating, electrifying, intoxicating, rip-roaring meme…..:) Kudos to you sis! Anyhow, my entry for this week is LETTERS.

Some of you knew that Greg and I met through a pen pal column. Yes, we’re pen pals! You know the snail mail type of thing….lol! It was October of 2003 when I wrote my first letter to Greg. And he responded a month later. No wonder why it’s called snail mail….it takes like forever to receive each others letter, but we have managed to correspond even if it takes us forever to get the letter.

Internet was a huge thing during that time, but I don’t have enough time to go to an internet cafe and besides I was busy with my feasibility study. I chose to be discreet on my penpal business and told nobody. I decided not to tell anyone during that time because I don’t want to disappoint myself. You know it might not work out.

After 8 months of corresponding each other, Greg finally made a decision to see me in person. To cut the story short, Greg and I met the day before my birthday (08/19). From then on we started building a LOVE relationship.

We get teary-eyed and get choked up every time hubby and I see our letters. These letters are very special and memorable to us.  And it is now placed on a fire-proof envelope….lol! I can’t wait to share and let our daughter read these letters.

We have been married for almost 6 years and until now I still can’t believe that snail mail works for us. It must be a DESTINY!
