Have You Ever Had A Pen Pal?

The only pen pal I ever had lived in another country.

Letter
It began when he was nine.

Someone contacted me that he and the family were in very bad shape and needed help.

So, each month I would scrap what I could from our pot and send it on.

Ever so often my pen pal would send a letter in his little child’s hand. It filled my eyes and touched my heart.

As time went on the letters became more mature, the writing more legible.

Then one day I received a notice that my pen pal had turned sixteen; he had taken a job to help support the family.

Instantly, I knew…

There would be no more letters.
