Hello my dear !
Now I' m writing to your letter and I' m happy. It' s very pleasant that
I have such the close person as you are. It' s a pity that you are far
from me. But I will hope that we will meet one day. I think we will be
glad to see each other when we know each other better. Masha asks me
about you every day. I say to her that I' m constantly thinking about
I very often go from school in public transport. Went by the share
taxi today and observed quite touching picture. At one of stops
elderly couple came. The grandmother sat down on an empty seat, and
the old man got up near her. I rose to give way to the grandfather.
When I suggested it to sit down, he very lovely smiled and told:
" Thanks, the granddaughter, you sit.
I do not depart from it far, and absolutely
I will lose that beloved" , - and, smiling, stroked it on hair.
From such attitude of the elderly person towards the beloved, I had a
tear. I remembered the grandmother and the grandfather on the mother' s
line. . They already died. . Mine the grandmother and the grandfather
got acquainted still when they were children.
It was time when the Great Patriotic War began 1941
They were still children, my grandfather was 13 years old, and the
grandmother is 12 years old.
They endured war, experienced great hunger of military times.
They survived. In 2 years after the end of war 1947, they got married.
They had no sexual relations prior to a wedding. And they were loyal
each other to death!
They died almost in at one time, 1999 of death of the grandfather, and
2000 of death of the grandmother. I could be proud of them! They
carried by love and fidelity, through all life. .
It ' s a pity that many Russian men became alcoholics. I remember that
many-many years ago my mum and I had to make a fence around our house.
But what could we do? Mum and I? When my mother came to a shop to buy
nails, three men asked her what for she needed nails. She told they
and they began laughing, when learnt that a young lady and her little
daughter wanted to do. They came to our house together with my mom and
everything was ready in the evening. They refused to take money. The
only thing we could do for them just to feed them with pancakes after
their work. Since that moment, to one of a favourite dish I had
pancakes. One of the man asked if the had something to paint the
fence. My mum answered that she would buy paint a little bit later.
Next day in the morning the 2 men came and they brought their own
paint and painted the fence. We wanted to pay them for it some money,
but they refused. They said that the paint was left after the painting
of their fence.
Yesterday in the evening I was thinking of my future. I' m happy that I
have my favorite job. I would like to develop in the area and to make
successful career. I don' t know how to spend this month my holiday, I
don ' t want to waste my time useless. I must think it over. Of course I
will write letters to you. But it will take only the part of my day.
What to do in the rest? I must find a decision. I hope, you are not
sick and tired of my letter. But I want to tell you much. I think you
are not against of it, because I suppose you are my closest the man of
my heart. Don' t forget to write letters to me.
