A lady in a grey anorak gave me a very cheery "hello" this morning as we were climbing into the car to set off on the school run.  It was nice and put me in a good mood ...

Resilience - The ability to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.

Nothing has changed.  There is still joy to be had.  When our hearts have stopped aching for the loss of precious, innocent lives (and they will because, by our very nature, we are resilient), we will remember that there is so much more good in life than bad.

Be happy.  Be optimistic.  Be just the way you were.  Don't be afraid.  Because that will mean that evil has won.  And evil deserves nothing more than contempt.

  7. Well said. And is it me or are people talking to one another more? I have been shopping today and I ended up chatting with a lady at a bus stop, exchanged words about the weather with a man I bumped into as I bundled out of a shop. Just encounters that on another day would not have happened. Maybe we are all just being nicer to one another as a result of hearing about such unbelievably bad things.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. Anyone ever told you that you're a peach? xx
