Thursday night I went to bed defeated and exhausted by the demands of school and of life. However, I was surprised the next day when I awoke to find a letter taped to my bathroom mirror. It was written by my significant other. Within a few minutes, I felt my heart bloom and rise back up from the depths of my stomach. His words of love and encouragement and his reminder of God being with me in every step of my life gave me such a sense of euphoria and refreshing vigor that I forgot my lack of sleep and my overbearing stress for the rest of the day.
