My Dear Friend!
I was so glad for the gift you sent me from America. I bought so many necessary things with the money you sent me. I am glad that you remember me and you always surprise me. I was so happy and I hope you never forget me. This has been a very prosperous year for me and I hope you have a great time too.
I had a great time for the New Year. I spent it home with my family. The most beautiful gift from God was the fact that I spent the New Year at home with my family. I didn't go anywhere, but I stayed home with my family. There is nothing better than being with your family. It it a habit for us to light fireworks at 12:00. I didn't have many, but I had enough. How about you? How did you spend the New Year?
This is my last year at school. I am so scared of the exams. (This absolutely concerns me. Florenc is 14 years old and will turn 15 in July. In poor families in Albania, boys often leave school at 15 to go work for their families. I don't want this to happen to Florenc. This came as quite a shock. I could lose my boy in just a few months.)
I was so happy for the New Year because my mother was with me, but now she is at the hospital for some cures.
Enough with me, how about you? How are you doing? Are you feeling well? Winter is here. I like winter very much especially when it snows. Do you like the snow?
I am so happy that you remember me every month. I hope to meet you one day!
He sure does look like a grown-up, doesn't he?
