Thank you Anand, for sharing your very beautiful story of love. Congratulations on your 40th wedding anniversary! May your and Luisa’s married lives always be filled with love, understanding, peace and joy!

The one who was next to your penpal at MNL airport

A "W😊W" love story...


Happy Holidays Anand – Fantastic story!


very lovely story that can be a plot in hollywood movies

Frankly Speaking

“One ancient rule of warfare has been followed: Ceasefire before dark (and a goodnight hug).”
Technically what must have followed is called Sleeping with the enemy. 😀


Beautiful & inspiring! We all here at Friday Reflections feel honoured for your sharing such a personal account of your life with us.

I cannot help but mention again - wonderful!

(Ur story sends a tingling sensation up my spine to the top of the head.)

Anand - a beautiful story of a loving couple. May you and Luisa experience a continued lifetime of happiness.

What a beautiful, beautiful story! There is a certain magic in letter writing as one puts more effort in expressing their thoughts and the magic of the pen sometimes makes one willing to share honest ideas.

Very nice and sweet. Happy 40th Anniversary.


What a love story! Congratulations on your 40th anniversary, Anand! May God continue to bless your marriage and family. 🙏

By the way, I also collected stamps when I was young. And had penpals too, not as many as yours though. 😄

To Humble Warrior
The photo is from Tongatapu island in Tonga. May 3,2018.
As you must have noticed the photo was taken after sunset when darkness had set in; the time for Ceasefire. (:)

That is a Beautiful story; Congratulations on your 40th wedding anniversary!


A truly uplifting real-life story that pre-dates Facebook encounters, and is a testament to honesty, persistence and commitment ! Best wishes for continued joy !


Do you know the wonderful song called "Do you love me?" from the Broadway show, "Fiddler on the Roof"? The song reminds me of your happy marriage. Happy Anniversary Anand and Luisa!

Thank you for sharing. Happy 40th anniversary.


Thank you very much for your sharing. It was a very nice love story. Wishing you a happy life forever!


Thanks for sharing your lovely Love story with your beautiful wife Louisa...God Bless both of you


Hearty congratulations on your 40th wedding anniversary!
I enjoyed your real life story very much. A global romance, it was fascinating! And the best advice for all married people was 'a cease fire before nightfall'!

A beautiful love story and a match made in heaven . Stay blessed

Lovely story, with a very happy message. Congratulations on 40 wonderful years.


A lovely Love story Anand and Luisa!
" ceasefire before dark..." So simple and yet so profound.
Wish you a wonderful new year, and another 40 years of life together.


First I knew very well the story but I have a dispute on your storyline. My oldest sister (yes you’re own very wife) is funny? Hahaha!!!!! Honestly, I really like your story and even the whole word have turn their back on you and my dear sister(you know who I was referring to) one thing will never be forgotten! I got a chance to live the life here in the United States and because of her I have a permanent job. Remember, the company that I work for originally wants her because I do not have work experience yet (because I was a newbie in this country). Thanks to her for that, I am forever grateful! Love, Amy




How simply and beautifully put....from the heart! And I remember all those times having been a miniscule part of it just like that of a bystander!!
Wishing you both a super Wedding Anniversary and many many more to come😃
