And as I read the email, it did transported me from the silent world of ease and brought me into the land of extreme rejoice! You might wonder what good news did that email delivered. Well, for instance it did delivered not just happiness to me but did also brought hope - a hope that promises to supply the amount of passion and eagerness that my heart would want.
And without further introduction, here's the content of the email that I'm talking about:
