childhood friend: Jovelyn: Yah, I know it’s been that long! But, you’re in my birthday list! So, happy birthday! Although, we’ve known each other when we were kids in elementary, junior and then high school, it boils down to still remembering each other! You can say keeping in touch; making a phone call, emailing, or writing letters from a distance is overrated when life hits you with so many changes, huh! But, I hope you enjoy your birthday! I hope we at least make the attempt to keep in touch when we can once in awhile, though, OK? And when you finally do get a chance to read this, well, I hope that everything is all well with you and your loved ones! Happy Birthday!
