Words to take your breath away.

Looking for something tonight, I stumbled across a stack of old letters from The Aunties from when I was away at Boarding School. I despised boarding school and I begged to go there. I judged a book by it's cover. Letters I received from them during that time were fill of encouragement and love and those words still offer reassurance today.

Aunty Hop's letters in particular were near poetic. I probably skim read them as a 15 year old at boarding school, but I use to smell them all the time because the paper would smell like home and that's what comforted me then.

The letters no longer smell like home, but their words mean more to me now than the scent I no longer recognize.

Their words remind me every day that I am loved.

And these words.

That's awesome that you could highlight parts of the letter.
