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.

My beautiful baby girl

  1. So glad you were able to speak about your daughter to the press, although I know how hard it can be to do so. So special that her friends raised so much money. Sending gentle hugs from across the pond… from a mom who lost her son suddenly as well.

  2. Lovely again Dwys. Hard for you to be going through this but I am sure you have helped many more people than you know.xxxx
