One day I was feeling very low; everything felt like it was not going right. I was away from my family. My parents were in different state. I was not satisfied with my work life. Due to hectic work life, I was not able to get together with my friends and somewhere deep inside I was feeling frustrated by the same old daily routine of waking up, going to the office, coming back, having dinner and then sleep. As it is rightly said that sometimes it’s better to hold on instead of giving up and mourning, I started my day with the usual stuff like checking my mail box, surfing the net, etc. To my astonishment, when I checked my mail box, I saw an extraordinary envelope sealed with a lovely sticker over it. I was very much surprised when I saw personalized birthday cards from my childhood friend.
I was totally surprised and very much excited to see my birthday card. That moment I realized, “Oh, my birthday is in 2 days!” I got very emotional seeing a birthday card from my best friend with a couple of quotes describing me and our childhood days. I could actually feel the closeness and deep friendship by continuously looking at my birthday card. I forgot all the hectic work life and tensions. It was lovely to have a personalized birthday card from one of my best buddies!
