Precious time

Time.  

Sixty minutes every hour and twenty four hours each day.  

Choices about how to spend them, wondering about whether we do it well enough all the time.

The FH has been on the phone to his friend tonight.  They've known each other probably only about 5 years at the most but they share a lot of common interests, so they get along very well.  Friend T has leukaemia, and he has told the FH tonight that he isn't going to make it.  He's spent weeks in hospital and now he has come home to spend what time he has with his wife and wider family.  The FH has been in tears here tonight.

Really makes you think.  Sorry that I haven't any other thoughts tonight - kind of absorbs all of your thinking when you hear news like that.

How very sad. Sometimes life really knows how to floor you. It is 10yrs almost to the day since I lost my best friend, and I still miss her so very much. With love X
