It's hard to put in words, Sweetheart,
The things I'd like to say,
The many loving thoughts of you
That fill my heart today,
But I hope you will understand
Just as you always do
And know the love unspoken
That this greeting brings to you.
and my eternal love!
What a sweet card. I know this is not much of a blog post, but it's lovely and sometimes we all just need something lovely.

Once my mother and Mrs. Ruhstadt sent her a small package for her birthday. They barely had enough themselves, since the food rations were very meager.
But they did send her some soap, a candle and ”coffee substitute” (Bluem’chen Kaffee is slang for it might smell like coffee, but it is not), a small well washed NIVEA tin filled with margarine and a small home baked cake.
The cake was so much examined, by totally it (was cut) into pieces (something could have been hidden in it)
Ella wrote to my mother:
Everybody in camp got only a tiny bite of my crumbly cake, but it was a celebration and my most beautiful birthday since a long time.
I could still cry when I think about it, how very cruel!
