He was born in the same year as me and so it focusses the mind somewhat when this happens. I have never seen a church so full as was the one for his memorial service. So well loved was he.
I don't normally Blog about personal issues as lets face it no one is THAT interested! However this event has made me take stock.
I am a very busy stained glass artist working hard to make a living and keep the roof over our heads and food on the table. This has never been a highly paid profession and still remains very hard work, as are all crafts if you do them properly.
But, I have decided:-when my daughters come home from school and want my time , they will have it.
When my husband wants a cuppa and a chat, he will have it.
When Floss looks lovingly at me and says she needs another walk, she will have it.
When I spot a day out, a visit that just has to be done, I will do it.
I will drink the tea and chat to my friends. I will make time because that is the one thing we don't have too much of.
