Letter 1: To my best friend!

Dearest of them all ❤ Do you know I had just entered a 30 day challenge of letters? Creme de la creme of the whole deal is, I get to write to you first.

One of my Sai friends recently raised a pertinent question – Is there someone you trust with your innermost thoughts without fear of judgement, other than Sathya Sai Baba? – and asked me to blog about it.
