they change, people change, and sometimes when they change it makes you think about what you have, or don’t have even. Life is very fragile and in a flash your world can be flipped upside down.
Today, we went to see an art exhibition in Hullbridge organised by a couple that we have known for many years, a lovely couple indeed. It was a pleasure to see what they had and the fact they are taking time out to do something together that they clearly enjoyed despite the stress the day had caused.
So the thought behind this reminded me that as I am about to start another long 5 days on the road, leaving my wonderful wife of 30 years at home whom I often think about whilst out on the road. In my day job things can change as the recovery industry is a dangerous one as often seen on social media because it rarely makes mainstream news. Maybe, just maybe there is something we can do together..
In regards of lives thrown upside down another family we know are potentially facing a life changing health scare, this family has been hardworking for the entire time we have known them. Having watched my father go thru a battle for a little less than a year fighting the big C I know 1st hand how brutal health changes are. Then watching my mother throw herself into life for the next year and to suffer her own life changing health scare at the end, brings it crashing into reality a reminder how fragile we are.
So often life is taken for granted, we don’t tell or show our loved ones we love them and appreciate them until something tragic grabs our attention and then, like this and me, got me thinking.. what if and how would I cope? No idea is the honest answer, I would like to say I would be fine and would cope and all this type of things, but nobody really knows how strong they are until they have to be.
Time to work smarter, not harder.. But what..? or how.. I miss home time with my wife and the family, on the other hand I do enjoy my day job because of the people I meet and help on a daily basis.
Whilst this is in my mind and fresh, off to get ready for the next 5 days on the road and in the truck..
