My name is Lily-Sue, but my mummy calls me Munchkin (or 'Munch' for short!) I am 8 years old, and this is where my mummy will help me write all about all the fun things we do together. I hope you enjoy reading about the adventures of my mummy and me, Munchkin, with the occasional appearance from the siblings - Beastie and Plumlet.

Mummy had her heart touched this week by a very special group of people. Whilst times have been tough and uncertain, these wonderful individuals have come together to show us that any obstacle is possible to overcome when you have precious people in your life. So while we have little to offer in return, mummy wanted to say a few words to show you all how much we are truly touched by the tenderness and selfless acts that you performed just for us. 

This week I was witness to sweetness
Of the most random kind,
And I know tenderness like this
Is often hard to find.

My story is long and complex
So I won't digress too much,
But some people will reach out a hand
And deep in the heart they touch.

They don't do it for recognition
Acknowledgement or self gain,
They do it for the understanding
To show empathy for your pain.

For when times get quite tough
And you don't know where to go,
There is someone there to take the load
To stop you feeling low.

These people might be strangers
Acquaintances of all sorts,
But the bond that builds is priceless
When you discover you're in their thoughts.

You know this verse is meant for you
I need to name no names,
As they don't do it for the praise or glory
Or any kind of fame.

They do it because they're loving
sensitive and kind,
A random act of kindness
That's rare and hard to find!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
You know who you are!
