Today through one of the long suffering husbands restaurants I received a package. It looked like an IKEA light but on the front it stated clearly ‘ this is not an IKEA light ‘ so intrigued I opened it to find the most delicious delectable framed picture of a cupcake. Made of wool, silky silvery threads, fronds, squirls, candy colours with a cherry on top. It is a small and perfectly formed work of art that looks good enough to eat.
Intrigued I read the enclosed letter.
It is from a reader of this blog. The letter was moving, funny – I mean laugh out loud funny – moving, sad, heart warming and sent to say Alison’s Diary blog has helped her through a few dark days over the past few years.
As I read the letter I felt tears rolling down my cheeks.
She had no idea.
The timing was impeccable.
Yesterday I was discharged from hospital after a two week stay and have recently had a few dark days of my own.
Whilst I read her letter she put a smile on my face, sadly lacking over the past wee while, and helped me remember how I felt before all this recent drama. She unwittingly has helped me in just the way she says this blog of disorganised outpourings has helped her.
So thank you.
Thank you for the letter
Thank you for the picture.
Thank you for reminding me a blog is not just a blog it is two way support mechanism for the like minded.
And thank you for getting me from the bed to the desk to the pc to the blog. Here we go again…..
Most of all thank you for it being today of all days.
Onward and upward……….
