Just a short blog today, it’s been a heavy week, one of memories, sadness, inspiration, smiles, kindness. Days are like that now. Hours are like that. Seconds can be like that. A mixture of moody darkness but with sparkling flecks of bright light speckled by people. People, family, friends, strangers all throwing mood changing light into our different life. It can be a simple smile, a silly photograph, breakfast in bed, a surprise bunch of flowers, an email, a telephone call, a private joke, a walk in the woods. Happiness comes from within but also from outside, to be happy I think we have to create happy – for others and then we will have a chance of being happy too. This week friends of Tes did a wonderful thing and raised over £2000 for the British Heart Foundation, they wore red, baked cakes and smiled. I was asked by the British Heart Foundation to be interviewed on the TV and also for local newspapers, to raise awareness. I said no at first, not really being able to face the publicity or reliving the moments again. It only took me a few seconds to change my mind, to know it was right for others, to perhaps bring a smile to another family in the hope research by BHF can prevent even one more tragedy.
Red for you Tes.
