Adissa is 15 years old. She lives in Ouagadougou, the capital city of Burkina Faso, in West Africa.
Adissa sent me a wonderful letter in French. It is also very colorful, with beautiful drawings around what she wrote.
In English, Adissa’s letter says:
What is a beautiful day?
A beautiful day is a day on which you accomplished something good. A beautiful day is a day on which you had beautiful surprises that you didn’t expect, for example:
– a good mark for your homework
– a delicious dish
– a beautiful present.
A beautiful day, that’s a day on which you bring your help to your next one who was in need.
Merci beaucoup, thank you very much for your beautiful letter, Adissa.
I felt so much joy when I read your letter. I also love these days when you accomplish something good or have a wonderful surprise that you didn’t expect. I hope that you often have beautiful surprises like good marks, delicious food or a nice present. And thank you for mentioning that a beautiful day is also when you bring your help to someone who needs it. This is so true and lovely, Adissa. Lots of love, Karina.
