Hi darling girl,
If you ever read this, and maybe you’ll stumble across it when you Google your name one day; this may sound really indulgent, but I wrote to you on the day I really wanted to talk to you, but you wouldn’t answer. I’ve been texting and calling you for days on end and console myself with the fact, that if you need me, you can and do call. The tables soon turn and today I really needed you. I needed to know you’re eating, that you’re safe, that you’re happy. I know I will see you real soon, but I missed you today in a kind of blurry vision and bubbly snot kind of way (I miss you every day). I couldn’t tell you, so I thought I would write it here. One day, you may read this and I could get the chance to tell you that today I needed a hug from my daughter, so tight that I could smell your hair.
Love you so much small thing,
Hello Dear Reader,
I love this time of year, of rebirth and renewal.
As ever, I personally steer right away from any commercialisation of Christ. He’s not for sale or to be profited by. He doesn’t need twigs decorated with eggs, chocolate at high prices, chicks, rabbits or any other pagan fertility symbolism. We don’t need wrapping paper, gifts or any paraphernalia to enjoy his message of peace.
If you want to know how I manage Christmas or Easter on a budget, the easiest way for me to explain how we do it for free is to remember that every day is a day of faith and love and family. With that in mind, neither costs me a single penny and I see no reason whatsoever to succumb to commercialisation.
Have a wonderful day as we can marvel in the love and forgiveness that is there for all of us.
