My Dearest Aggy

Hello my dearest best friend,

At the time you’re writing this letter, a friend of yours had just suddenly lost his mother.

She was fine, until one day she wasn’t and just like that, yet another child lost his mother. Just like you did.

As you were sitting there, paying your friend a visit and his mother, your last respect, you watched your friend closely as he described what happened to his mother and you couldn’t help but thought, “I was here. I was right in that spot he is in right now.

And you’ll realize that you have done well and survived.

You suffered the greatest loss in your life and you’ve managed to wade through the murky waters.

Let me tell you something about losing your own mother and how it had helped you when your friend lost his.

You wouldn’t have known how it feels like and would have been so lost as to what to do and how to act, if it wasn’t for your own experience in dealing with the loss of your own mother.

The moment you laid eyes on your friend, you know. You understand.

Your loss had taught you what your friend needed at that very moment.
Your loss had taught you what you could do to ease a bit of the pain.
Your loss had taught you what to say and what not to.

Your loss has made you a better friend, a better person.

I know you’re in pain right now.

I remember all those hours you spent kneeling in front of your mother’s picture on the altar.

I remember the tears, the moment you realized your mother can no longer hold the grandchildren she had wanted so much in her arms. Nor would she ever again set foot in all the countries she wanted to explore. You cried so much your head hurts.

All the promises left hanging in the air…

But you’ll be okay.

You’ll be okay because your mother had taught you well before she left.

She had left you with an arsenal, to ensure that not only you’ll survive, YOU’LL THRIVE.

So hang in there.
Hang in tight, love.

Because this too shall pass.

It really does.

Yours forever and always,

The Stronger You
