My Lovely Friend Lynn

When I was asked to pick my Thorntons Christmas Hero and bring a smile to someone's face I immediately thought about my friend Lynn.

Lynn is like a ray of sunlight, always cheery in the face of adversity she really makes me smile. However recently she has been having a tough time. She is a single mum and has always looked after her mother herself. Her mum couldn't be left alone for long and Lynn was always there for her and her son Evan. Evan helped his mum out as best he could but it was difficult on times for Lynn.

On a rare day out with her son, her mum passed away. Lynn was devastated and took it really badly. Since that day Lynn has been really low, and the worse thing is due to circumstances she may have to vacate her house by Christmas.

We have a small group of Facebook friends who look out for each other and Lynn in one of them.

I chose this - Christmas gift bundle for her, a gorgeous selection of treats, besides a massive selection box, and advent calendar for her son.

Christmas Gift Bundle For Her

When I asked some of the others to sum Lynn up these are their words.

"She inspires me to help others with her kind & generous nature, helping others is second nature to her which she does without a second thought"

"She's a huge heart, full of laughter, witty and lights up any room with her beautiful smile"

"Despite whatever personal problems Lynn is having she always puts others before herself. She is a truly selfless person and I feel honoured to know her."

I hope I brought a smile to her face, like so many times she has brought a smile to mine.
