My Maternal Journal

A few years ago, a stranger sent me a beautiful text on Valentine’s day.  I was genuinely perplexed as to who might have written this to me, so perplexed in fact, that I presumed he (possibly it was a she) had sent the message to the wrong number.  My response to the beautiful words was thus:

“is this 4 me? I’m married with 4 kids, black lab, cat and goldfish, live and work in leafy South London. Happy Valentine’s Day nonetheless.”

I never heard from the stranger again.
