My friend Louise was recently diagnosed with terminal cervical cancer, when she told me about her diagnosis we sat, cried and talked a lot. She was telling me about how she wished that everybody would be more grateful for the things that they have instead of always wanting more because you just never know when it’s all going to be taken away from you and you’ll wish you could have longer to appreciate what you do have.
That conversation has been on my mind for a couple of days now so I decided to do something about it! I think that we could all be a little more grateful in one way or another so I’m going to set myself a challenge and if you want to join in too then you’re more than welcome.
Every day for the next 30 days I’m going to post a blog post talking about something I’m grateful for; whether that be a person, item or something else. If I succeed with the 30 day challenge then I might extend it beyond 30 days! If you don’t have a blog then you could always do the challenge on social media or even just in your own diary.
Today I’m grateful for Lou and our friendship, and in fact all of my friends who have been with me through thick and thin, good times and bad, without whom I’d be completely lost.
Friendship is a really important thing, friends are the family that you pick for yourself and in some cases they’re the only family that you have or need.
I love all of my friends dearly and I hope that they know that.
I’m going to put a link at the end of this paragraph to the Macmillan Cervical Cancer page, if you’d like more information on Cervical Cancer or if you’d like to donate then everything you need can be found by clicking here.
Thank you so much for reading this post,
In Omnia Paratus,
