I remember a day I was sooooooo sad and lonely.
The sun was shining, I was sitting dipping my toes in the pool and everything should have felt like bliss!
But it didn’t!!
Homesickness had kicked me right where it hurts!
…….in my heart.
Desperately I took myself off to the cool climate of the local library, a place full of strangers.
I felt more sad and alone than ever and the tears were now streaming down my face!
So many tears I couldn’t even see pictures on the pages of the book I had chosen let alone read the words!
So I started to doodle….this lead me to start writing……this lead me to start writing letters.
Letters to friends back ‘home’ telling them how much I missed them.
I thought how cross they would be with me for sitting here crying and feeling sorry for myself.
My tears started to dry up as I thought fondly of my friends and the good times we had shared.
For me that day was a turning point……
How my friends would have given anything to be sitting in the sun dipping their toes in a pool!
