I had already written most of my usual sunday mid-morning roundup and was on the verge of hitting ‘publish’ when I realised what the date was today. Yes, I really have been that self absorbed lately that I completely missed the fact that four years ago today a good friend of the family died along with 2,748 others.
So, if you will excuse me, I am not going to post the traditional right now – it seems callous and wrong.
Instead, I would like you all to take today to sit down with the people you care about, tell someone you love them, and ring those people you’ve been meaning to talk to in ages but haven’t got around to it. Life is too short and you’ll always regret it if you let that chance slip by.
