For All That We Have.

Good Morning to you all,

.

This is being written in a grey and dark location in the UK, a complete repeat of yesterday in fact.

How rubbish is that!

Has the weather run out of new ideas.

Is it not interested in being surprising anymore!

.

So, I shall be equally boring to match, for absolutely the same reasons as yesterday, and do exactly the same things today too.

So there!

.

Not a lot has actually been happening here lately .

When you meet the people on the street, they all seem depressed by the winter and spend most of the conversation telling you about it, along with excruciatingly minute descriptions of their various aches, pains and illnesses.

I prefer to stay in case I catch something from them!

Seriously though, they are definitely in need of the summer sunshine arriving before they all depress each other to death.

.

Being ‘down’ is a bad thing in my opinion because it lowers your immune system and you are less healthy than you should be because of it.

Staying ‘up’ is not only more pleasant for others who spend time with you, but much better for your own personal health and wellbeing.

I always aim to be happy, and so I should be because I have a lot to be thankful for.

.

I was in tears the other night watching a documentary showing a little girl visiting the beach in Australia.

She was suffering from an inoperable brain tumour which had blinded her.

There she was, tiny and frail, visiting a lifeguard whom she had made friends with after he had become known through making television appearances. She had liked the sound of him I think.

She was a beautiful child who was grave, dignified, sweet and charming with everyone.

It was mentioned in the credits that the programme was dedicated to her memory, as she had died later on.

.

In the face of such sweet acceptance and bravery we should all feel humbled….and lucky if we have the gift of a normal life.

That is how she made me feel anyway.

It is noticeable how often these children are so serene and ageless in the face of their suffering when they have so much to cope with and so little time.

It makes me ashamed of myself for the times I behave less than well.

.

So, I shall appreciate today to the full because I am lucky enough to be able to do so.

.

Have a wonderful day yourself.
