Being grateful for what you have.....
I have been feeling a bit sorry for myself this week. Sam and Izzy both had ear infections and were grumpy and nobody got much sleep. I was too tired to do any sewing and was generally feeling a bit miserable. Then I got an email from a friend asking me to sponsor her for the Bristol half marathon and it made me cry. Why? Because my friend has suffered the most unimaginable, devastating loss in the last year. I won't go into detail here but last year her 2 young daughters died within months of each other (and of their new baby brother being born). This would have destroyed most people but my friend is determined to raise money for Bristol Childrens Hospital where they were both treated in their honour and that is why she is running the half marathon.
I know times are tough but if anyone can spare a few pounds to sponsor her then please check out her website which gives more information. She is an amazing woman with such courage and suddenly my week just doesn't seem so bad after all.
