If Christmas Is Hard Print
If Christmas Is Hard
I wrote and illustrated this poem in December 2019, knowing that Christmas can be a difficult time of year following a loss or bereavement. It was shared by the charity Your Voice Cornwall on their Facebook page, from there it was shared over 50k times and thousands of heartbreaking comments started pouring in.
I sat in my pjs by the Christmas tree on December 23rd replying with condolences to as many comments as I could. Seeing how much comfort these words were bringing at a difficult time, I immediately decided to make it into a card and print in 2020 to raise money for Your Voice and spread comfort to those who needed it. I was blown away by the response to these words. If you need them this Christmas, I'm sending you love. x
Your Voice is a wonderful charity who provide mental health support to women in Cornwall.
