I have been appreciating the simple things in life lately...............health, family, friends and loved ones, music...and more music, flowers, mountains, gardens, trees, news of good things happening, the sea, books, art...and of course I could go on and on. I am sure you can all think of a few things yourselves.
An old friend and I were driving home from the funeral of a mutual friend.
Our friend was our age and she had a beautiful family and home, a wonderful busy, joy filled life that she lived to the full, and she was killed in an instant on a quiet stretch of road in the country on a sunny friday afternoon in a horrific car accident.
We were reminded once again how utterly precious life is, and our relationships too.
I had a quiet day to reflect and I finished my jumper.
