I listen to the gentle murmuring voice
Of our city, awake despite the hour
And I linger, unwilling to return
To the television world inside — droolingmonkey

Giving Back

From next month,I will be working as a support person in the intensive care at our local hospital.I will give love and strength to anyone who needs it and I will take care of the patient while the family has a break.I know how much this is needed.In this same place I have seen my sister die... 3 wks after being hit by a car...and I have seen my older brother in a coma for 6 wks with meningitis.
He lived :)..I was lucky to be surrounded by family but some people have no-one.
I want to be that someone who makes a difference..even for a moment.

In the last 12 mths I have lost a lot of friends of all ages including Dr John,a lovely old man who has been commenting on my blog for yrs now....
Ian who was an alcoholic and chose his own inevitabled death..but still was only 43.
Kathy my best friend Claud's mother..Ive known her all my life.
.Today I lost another one.Liz Prior and I lived in a house with 4 other girls when Jake was a baby.She helped me take care of him.We are the same age and went to school together.
She was a good friend.We ate food at midnight and had lots of dinner parties with friends over.

But to look on the bright side....Im sure that I have GAINED many more friends than I have lost..And every time theres another funeral we catch up with more old friends LOL!!!

The biggest,hardest lesson I have learned in life..Never waste a second!
I hope I can spread a little bit of Gods sunshine around :)
