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?
