"My dearest love. I woke up tired today. even more so than yesterday.
How that's possible, I don't even know, nor do I want to.
It's hard to find a motivation when you are this drained.
My body aches but I'm used to feeling this way.
Seventeen down, seventeen to go. That's not so bad, right ?
I think of home often and of you even more.
Yesterday, I saw the sun shining, it appears for a few minutes, just after two.
For a moment I found myself smiling, as if those short rays of light were enough to get me by.
Maybe that was enough. Thanks God. I needed that.
I surely needed that."
