Post it

This isn’t the post I planned to share tonight. No, that post was a bit sad and reflective of my (sometimes) miserable lot in life and I went on and on about how isolated and alone I feel most days.

This is the picture I was going to share with that post. It was just a little something I drew on a Post-It Note whilst waiting for my foster daughter to finally finish her breakfast this morning.

But why did I decide not to post the sad stuff? Well, partly because I reminded myself that no matter how isolated and alone I feel most days, I will be living in a city again soon – and in my favourite country in the whole world.

And partly because I checked the post on my way home from work today and there was a card waiting for me reminding me that no matter how isolated and alone I feel, I have amazing friends all around the world who care and who are there for me.

I’m still a bit sad and reflective, but at least now the light of hope that shines on my future is a little bit brighter.

See! I keep telling you guys that a simple card can make all the difference in someone’s day. Maybe we should all make a point of sending a note to someone we care about this week. Maybe a thank you note to an old math teacher or a letter to a friend’s mom letting them know what a great job they did raising their child?

  1. I love the idea of sending someone a little note or card – it really does make a huge difference. I’ve been so low lately, and I know how comforting it is when someone takes time out of their busy day to just think about me and really care. 🙂 xxx

    1. Yuck! I know how hard it is when you’re waiting for a visa–and it’s worse when you’re 1000s of miles from home. All of the uncertainty really drags you down!
      But I’m keeping you in my thoughts and hope that you’ll be on a visa high very soon!!
