    The acknowledgement was always secondary to the act.  But I am now left not knowing if she ever saw it at all.  That is not quite the same as knowing she saw it, and chooses not to acknowledge it.  Not in terms of what it does for me, but in terms of whether she even knows I cared enough to send it.  

    I admit, it's a very fine line; one that I will have to live with.

      of delivery is fraught with the same risk. An email could drop in her spam folder; a letter could be misdirected or thrown away before opening; a phone message could be erased, accidentally or not.

      The only way you could KNOW she received it is if either she acknowledges it, or you had an actual conversation with her to deliver your message.

      Otherwise, you have to go on faith, that your reach has been "enough." And then you have to forgive yourself if you have not yet, and you need to let go of the need to know. Because you will never know unless she tells you.

      You know all this. Yes?
