I have been lying here beside her bed for a long time now. Every night before going off to sleep she tells everything about her day. Telling me her highs makes her feel proud about herself and sharing her lows with me makes her feel better. She shared with her dreams and her inner most feelings. This has been her daily practice for a long time now. I took over after my predecessor retired when it was full. I have got to her well ever since. She loves to write and that is evident from the blog that she writes. But the things she writes in me are special as all of it comes from her heart and not just her imagination. She made me feel special as she considered me her secret keeper.
The time spent with her has been the best. I was nothing but a notebook lying in a corner until she picked me up and decided to make it her diary. All my fellow notebooks went on to become the boring school and college notebooks and those words and numbers were so boring. I was lucky that she chose me to be her diary. And now since only a few pages are left in me, I was thinking who would take over from me.
I want my successor to be special because she is special and deserves only the best. And the next few months are going to be very important with lots of special memories. She is in her final year of college and I am sure that these are the memories that she would like to carry with her forever. And that is the main reason why I want my successor to be special. As I was lost in these thoughts, the constant ringing of the bell woke me up. It was a big parcel for her and I didn’t know what were contents. When she came back from college that day and she opened the parcel. She was happy after looking at the contents of the parcel. Curious to know what the package contained? Here it is:
The package contained three beautiful books. I was curious to know what they were and the next day after she left for college I explored them. The three beautiful books were from Matrikas. When I searched about them through my trusted sources I found out that they have a lovely range of stationery products- notebooks and diaries. I suggest that you can try them out. I was glad that I had found successors!
The first book in the package was Matrikas Cube Works Journal. It had a lovely design with computers, tables, buses doodled all over it. It’s hard bound and I am sure that all here memories will be safe and sound in this. Also it has this elastic strap to make sure that if she decides to keep any papers in the journal, they do not fall. The paper quality was lovely and it was evident that she loved it as she had already started writing in it.
The next product was the Mother Theresa Journal. I loved the cover with Mother Theresa’s picture on it. It also had a short biography of hers. What I liked most about it was that there were sections to make a list of books to be read, works to be accomplished, places to be visited and also monthly planners. I am sure that she going to be more organized with her work after using this. And she loves collecting quotes that inspire her and she has now started writing the quotes in this journal. I good choice I must say.
And the third product was Matrikas Cubeworks Ring notebook. The cover is a lovely pink with doodles all over it. The paper is of good quality and the notebook looks funky. She has started writing her poems in this notebook. Earlier many poems were lost as she would write poems in pieces of paper and she would forget where she kept them.
I am glad that she has received these books. My work is now over and I can now retire. I thank Matrikas for sending her these books. She loves them and yes they can be lovely gifts for your loved ones too. Do visit their website. You can like their Facebook Page here.
