A Letter from Future Greta!

Greta was shocked when she opened the envelope and saw that it was a letter from someone. “Jeez who writes letter these days…” As she opened it, she grew more curious; she read the first sentence aloud in surprise, “Dear 25 year old Greta, you are making the greatest mistake of your life by marrying Jeffery.”  “Seriously, who plans pranks like this!” She continued reading, “You may find this difficult to believe.

It was her who gave him a new life, inspiring him to live and love his life. If he loses … Continue reading Once in every Seven years
