How blessed thou art.

Or something. Do you know I've been thinking about how lucky I am to get to spend time with my children everyday, watch them grow up, have snacks over the kitchen table and just be well about. I was intending to blog something poignant and real about it today, and was planning to stop moaning about money, and when things go a little wrong, and being, sometimes a little under employed in the intelligence front.

However, I've just heard from a good friend that her partner has been seriously ill for the past few months. And its caught me off guard. They're such lovely people, and full of life seriously. They really don't moan about the tiniest details and enjoy what they do.

He's over the worst now, but it really make you think sometimes. And get well soon P - we're thinking about you - and will save some strange ingredients for you to produce yummy cocktails with next time we see you.

I can testify that there is nothing like being reminded of your own, or a loved one's mortality, to put life priorities into perspective.

I think the apposite phrase here is 'don't sweat the small stuff.....'
