Dear Annie,

Although I could have mailed or texted you, I felt a handwritten letter to my dearest bestie would surely make you smile.

I have been elated on receiving the good news from you. After extreme trials and tests you have become pregnant. God has answered your genuine faith and hearts desire. He will abundantly bless you with…

“Mummy!” interruption guaranteed when you have a super-curious toddler in home. Instead of paying him attention how dare his mother start writing a letter?

So, after a short break the mother returned to her heartfelt wishes for her friend.

…a cute bundle of joy. I would have really loved to be with you on this journey. Despite different stories, we could have shared a hearty laughter together. I maybe physically absent but this personal touch, delivered to you by post, will stay with you forever.

Sweetheart, don’t get dismayed. The rules in this game of motherhood (battlefield later on!) are unique to each mother. You simply pamper yourself with healthy food and sleep. Stock up your energy from now on.

All the very best for your journey ahead. Have a safe and successful one.

Writing in a hurry. Bye till we meet again.



The mother carefully kept the love-letter in the envelope out of reach of the T-Rex roaming in the home.

In his absence, she would post the letter. And Lo! Despite such precautions taken, the letter got stolen. Yeah! That attractive envelope!

The sincere student had etched myriad designs, numbers and letters on it with colours. He had managed to make an airplane out of the letter. It would take him to Kolkata, he assured her while going to school.

Would the mother smile or cry or tear her hairs as she failed to deliver the letter?
