A single photo and a story from my week.

This week, I had the overwhelming urge to tell my mum that I love her, that she is wonderful and that we are lucky to have her. I sent her a text and sealed it with kisses and her sweet reply had me welling up at my desk on Tuesday morning – it was clear to me that she was so grateful for a feeling that took me 20 seconds to convey, that she knew was true and that I know she knows every day, but that having it in writing made it all the more transparent.

I bought this card a few weeks ago for its charming sentiment and beautiful, swirling text and I’ve been thinking lately how it’s not so much a reassurance to myself that I am loved (and delightful, don't you know), but a special reminder that the people in my life need to know that that is how I think of them too.

This weekend, reach out to someone and tell them you think they are wonderful. It will make them (and you) feel untouchable.
