10 Life lessons learnt this week.

  1. Suddenly being widowed at the age of 65 when you left home and married at 18 can be the last straw in keeping your sanity.
  2. If you do not know a little of how the NHS and more specifically the mental health services work accessing their services is far too complicated.
  3. You cannot always trust your neighbours.
  4. It doesn't matter how many friends you have, the ones that catch you when you are falling are worth more than gold.
  5. In the midst of chaos you can choose to put your spouse and children first and make them very happy.
  6. Reflecting on the book of Job in the Bible is a good way to keep slogging on when the going is tough.
  7. Dogs emotions are soon affected by the people around them, but are quickly stabilized if you have loved them well from the beginning.
  8. If the occasional waft of cigarette smoke is able to make you want one, immerse yourself in the company of a heavy smoker and you will soon loose your craving.
  9. 10 year old girls can show love for their 12 year old brothers no matter how much they bug each other.
  10. You have to work hard at having no regrets.
