There are those I interact with regularly and whose smiley faces and little FB messages cheer me on. There are emails from people I knew long ago and people who I have never met. There have been parcels and flowers and pictures of recovered children that warm the cockles and phone calls and texts that are little rays of sunshine.
I really can't reply to them all but please know I do read them and I appreciate not only the words but the thought and the time that goes into them. Love you ALL.
I do have one correspondent who deserves a special mention just because she is madder than me and, most annoyingly, wittier than me. She can paint a picture in three words and I eagerly look every morning for her message because it always make me cry with laughter.
Just for your info, M, I have slightly less hair than Barbara Woodhouse and defo no pie crust collars, but otherwise the analogy is pretty spot on.
Here's one for you.
