The letter was left on the floor; the words in the letter were something she didn’t think would happen. In fact, she knew it couldn’t be true despite the paper she picked back up and held in her hands. The words within them were not only good news but the best news.
Holding it with trembling hands and tears that she never knew were falling, she couldn’t help but smile.
Her dream would become a reality. It might take many years for it to happen but the letter was proof it would. Having worked so hard for the scholarship she pressed it close to her heart, to remember what a dream turning into reality felt like.
