We had our retreat last Monday-Wednesday and it's somehow my last retreat as a student. It was really a great moment for us to reflect and reconnect with God and to our loved ones. What I loved the most was when we were given that personal time, a personal time of silence and reflection for three hours. I never knew that I could actually stay and have my personal time for straight three hours. Actually, me and my roomie, Janina felt the need of some extension and we can't believe that we actually didn't talk almost the whole time. We were busy writing our letters for our loved ones and even if we felt some weird stuffs inside our room, we just didn’t mind them.
I loved those letters, I loved how I get to express my feelings for a person and I loved reading letters telling me how much I am appreciated and loved. Last Saturday, I just received a special letter. I didn’t expect that I would read a retreat letter of four pages and it’s not the first time to receive a letter from that person. I was sick that time and it actually made me feel better... a lot better. Sometimes you’ll just realize that the traditional letter writing is still the best way to express yourself and touch other people’s lives. ;)
