Beautifully Thoughtful

It is so easy to focus on all the people who are insensitive, all the things that upset or hurt me. It is easy to focus completely on myself and my grief, because it is all-consuming.
But there have been so many times this month where people have been so thoughtful.  The gestures that let me know they are thinking of me. The people who’ve given us angel ornaments and angel things, the light up candle, the special bauble and glittery butterfly for Anabelle. Each of these things gestures have been shining moments amongst the huge difficulties we are facing this Christmas. It touches our hearts that other people remember and think of our daughter too.
It is hugely touching that people remember us.
Today in the post we received a truly wonderful surprise; a voucher for a night’s stay at our “happy place” hotel including dinner, breakfast and 2 mini spa treatments. The ladies in my virtual world community have taken the time to contribute and organise this treat for me and Jon. It was completely unexpected and we are overwhelmed by their kindness and generosity. I think it is a beautifully thoughtful gesture.  It made our day and is another bright shining moment.
Spending time in our happy place is something we will look forward to and has bought smiles to our faces.
The same ladies have organised a part 2 to their surprise. A part 2 after all they’ve already done – this friendship community really is quite something!  I am to understand that part 2 is something for Belle and they are hoping it will arrive with us tomorrow on Christmas Eve.  I think Anabelle has been a spoilt angel this Christmas; people have added to her tree, given us and sent us things in her memory. I really do hope part 2 arrives tomorrow in time for Christmas, because we are both looking forward to finding out what else these fabulous ladies have done to mark her first festive season.
And so to everyone who has taken the time to think of us and Anabelle, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
