This time is forever more going to be a time of year that is that little bit darker for me than the rest. With dad passing things got dark very quickly last year and I was most definitely not looking forward to this Christmas but as the year passed things got that little bit easier.
There have definitely been dark days and happy times in our household.
Then on the 14th December the shade came again. I cannot mention the name of the person but they were incredibly special because they helped a lot of people in ways that some do not even know yet. This person was one that made everyones day a little brighter without even saying a word – a smile, a hand to hold and even just a wink.
This person made you aim for the best and forget about the worst. With all of the insignificant little things in the world that people make a big deal out of perspective was something that this individual could make you pick out with a fine tooth comb. They will be missed most of all by their family but also by the entire medical and nursing team on our unit/theatres.
Darker times seem to be coming thick and fast the older I get but with that in mind I will persevere and hope for the best in 2018. This may or may not be my last post of 2017 but for now it feels like things have been rounded up as I am loving Insta, Twitter but the blog is really taking it out of me. Let’s see shall we!
