“Pages”


Tom had been gone for months, and Esther struggled to remember moments of a life once shared. While packing away Tom’s things in the closet, she searched for tangible pieces of that life.

Suddenly, there in the corner was a box of cards and letters that told the history of their years. Hope stirred deep in her heart as memories came flooding back; Esther knew she had found what she sought. 

Between the pages of these cards and letters, Tom and Esther’s love lived on.

  3. so sweet. I still have some of the love notes that Left Brain has written over the year. even if it's just a little note on a scrap piece of paper. I suspect these will be the things that matter later on.

  7. Feelings are so much better expressed on pages than on mails, messages or even social medias. Nothing can replace a love living through letters! A beautiful story here :)
