Little Things

At the end of what can only be described as one of the shittiest weeks of the year, I arrived home to find something that usually gives me such joy. I got two letters from my Mum.

Bearing in mind what a shitty week it’s been, anything with my favourite cartoon cat Garfield on it would be most welcome. Except it arrived like this:


Luckily I could still read most of the hand-written message inside, and the back of the card displayed the message that was gone from the front:

Take life one cup at a time.

As I prepare to pull the covers over my head to escape the world that has gone out of its way to make my life unhappy this week, I feel grateful for one thing. That my Mum knows me so well. Even half a Garfield makes me smile through the tears, and you always know what to say to make everything seem better.
