My Fairy Godmothers

As I’ve mentioned, things have been a bit rotten lately so have been wallowing in a little self-pity…then something unexpected happens and reminds you that there are still genuinely nice people in the world. In my case, it was just a touching gesture by a few individuals (some of whom know me well, one of them not so well), but it meant a lot to me and went some way to restoring my faith in the season of goodwill. Nothing has visibly changed: I’m still ill, still half of a zero-income family, still going to miss my grandma this Christmas, still worrying about the future BUT I know have people in my life who care and that’s what makes a difference. “God bless them, every one,” as Tiny Tim may have said.
