I’m writing this as a prequel to my conclusion of #100happydays next weekend. I’m on day 95 or so now and I have to say all of them have not been happy – BUT I have managed to find a happy moment in each day, which I am thankful for. Here are some of the shit bits:
- A friend of mine died last month at the age of 41, which was a seriously untimely death.
- My mother had a hip replacement that incurred some extra problems that really messed up her summer, but it is her 81st birthday now, so happy birthday!
- My mother in law (Grandma Janet) is now seriously ill after a fall and I really don’t know what is going to happen next.
- I seriously don’t know what is going to happen next
The photo above is the one that was on the birthday card to my Mum today. Both our girls were born with a full set of grandparents which is quite an achievement as we didn’t start producing them until we were 40ish. The photo makes me realise how precious life is, these beautiful girls have perfect bodies, active minds and are ridiculously talented in every artistic and linguistic way. More importantly they have a whole life ahead of them, I can’t wait to see what they do with it.
