Imagine my surprise when last weekend, this beautiful parcel arrived, from a mystery sender. I wasn’t expecting it and was actually wondering if it had come to the wrong address!
Upon opening the card first, I learnt that it was from a follower of my blog and new thyroid friend Ruth, all the way from Canada. She’d read about how I’ve not been feeling my best lately, so sent me a package of lovely things to brighten my day up.
I was so touched. It was a really thoughtful gesture and she clearly knows me well!
Ruth included some bath roses, which I haven’t used yet as I’m saving them for a real pamper day/evening as well as some other bits like Dory and Nemo sweets (which were delicious!)
I felt really lucky to know such a wonderful person and the fact that she took the time to put something like this together was lovely. As I’ve said before, the thyroid community are so, so supportive.
We need to continue to look out for and look after each other. Sometimes, no one else will and we can even neglect ourselves and forget to self-care. I know I’ve been guilty of that recently.
