I came home from work the other day to find a care package on my doorstep. And inside I found all of my favourite things – Old Dutch Ripple Chips with Dill Pickle dip, Wine Gums, dark chocolate with sea salt, a 6 pack of Red Stripe beer and a magazine. But the best part of it all was the letter included in a plain, white envelope.

I opened the Wine Gums, sat on the couch, and read. And cried. And then read again. And then called my dear friend Trisha, as she wrote the words. And through my tears I thanked her so much for the package. She said that I am always so good at care packages for others and it was time I got one for myself. She said she isn’t good at them, but she did fabulous – it was the perfect care package.

Please read her words here. Please, please, please.


I drank a Red Stripe and kept her letter close to me…
