This year I didn't send you any present or a Christmas card. Not because I don't want to, but I gathered that you don't want to receive anything from me. The last year's Christmas present I posted to you (twice) and your Birthday present both came back to me unopened. They are in their original envelopes as I still hope that one day you may wish to see me or you will provide me with a valid address so I can send them to you. In the meantime I will keep writing to you here.
For me this Christmas is a very difficult one - as you know, I lost my son Leo, your half-brother and dealing with the loss is especially hard at this festive time. I always however have hope for the better future and even at the darkest moments of my life, this hope keeps me going. Do never lose hope dear Atria, no matter what live throws at you. You are stronger than you think and you can handle anything if you believe in yourself and in a better future.
Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year full of new opportunities Atria!
