I met a friend for coffee in Starbucks today. An old friend, whose children used to be in school with mine. A friend who I haven't seen for two or three years. We met there at 10.45 and finally left at 2.30 because we had so much to talk about.
Now if I think that we have a difficult few years, then this friend has had far worse. In fact, if I was to write the story of what she has experienced in a novel, it would probably be considered too far-fetched to be true. Sadly, it has been her reality.
But she is bouncing back. She is a strong, beautiful and intelligent woman who has been put through hell but is reinventing herself.
I admire her so much.
Three notable things:
1. Hubby has been off work sick for two days, but is going back tomorrow.
2. Son 2 got very upset about Indian dancing at school yesterday.
3. I've posted new pieces on the Your Messages blog. Check out each day!
