I heard some sad news yesterday. A friend of mine I'd lost touch with just before Christmas is in a bad way.
I used to invite her and her daughter round for meals as I know she was struggling financially. Eventually she moved in with her mother for a while for support. I've now heard she's since turned drugs, her daughter removed from her care and there are several loan sharks looking for her. 
I tried sending her a message to say hello and ask how she was. She replied asking for money, I of course declined and she blocked me.
It's all very sad.
I am so grateful today for all I have in my life. 4 wonderful children, a kind supportive husband, loving friends and family. 
I'm also reminded that we are all only a few bad decisions away from disaster.
It's a sobering thought.


P.S - You have no idea how many chocolate buttons I had to bribe them with to take these photos! It was a nightmare! I've no idea how child photographers do it!

  1. That poor girl. Things like this make us realise just how fortunate and blessed we are.

    Lovely photo!

  2. Your photos are lovely. Yes it is good to reflect on what we have to be grateful for. So sad for your friend.

  3. Sorry to hear about your friend. I am reminded of a friend of mine in the US who is struggling at the moment after her husband was made redundant with very little notice or payoff. It doesn't even take any bad decisions for people to come a step too close to disaster. You are so right in reminding yourself to be grateful for where you are & thanks for making me remind myself that as well...
