"Mary! Mary!" Cindy called out. "You got the letter in the mail you have been waiting for.”
Cindy runs out of her bedroom and grabs the letter. "I can't believe its finally here."
Cindy tears into the envelope and reads the contents to herself. Slowly the excitement on her face turns to sadness.
“Well, what did it say?” Mary asked.
“I got rejected, they said my book was just not what they were looking for.” Cindy started to cry. “Oh Mary, that is the third rejection letter I have received and I just don’t think I can handle another one. I just know God had me write this book for a reason, I feel like if it got into the right hands that it could heal someone and make a difference.”
“It is exactly why you won’t give up.” Mary said. “You book on how to deal with sadness through scriptures is great. I know God has just the right publishing company for you, you just haven’t found them yet.
Cindy still felt sad, she also felt like maybe she should be reading her book on how to deal with sadness. That thought made her give a little smile. Cindy wiped tears from her eyes and replied. “Your right, God knows who it will help and when it will be the right time for it to be published. I will look for another publishing house in the morning.

Well, there's not a writer on this site who can't relate to this!

Be careful of your verb tenses--you switched back and forth from present to past a few times.

I like the caring and supportive relationship between your two characters.

Well said! So sad is rejection, at least we know one place we will always be accepted!

Good message. You may want to consider additional spacing between the paragraphs for more clarity and punch. Keep writing and believing! Blessings... Angel
