birthday celebrations in the mail

27th January, 2021: I received these cards for my birthday from friends and family across England. It makes me miss the a lot, and I am sad that I couldn’t be with them that day (as I live away from home). But there was also something so special about the thought that they took some time out of an evening drawing and writing these cards, thinking about our memories together.

Then within a few days, these cards were physically transported miles and miles away, into my hands for me to enjoy and feel their love from afar, despite the physical distance. I feel as loved and cared for as I have in all the years I spent celebrating with them.
