What's Really Important?

It's easy to get so caught up in day to day life that you forget what's really important. I'll give you a clue, it's not reality television or what someone said online. It's not what you have, it's who you have in your life that makes it special.

Family and friends are what's really important. Spending time with people you love; chatting, laughing, listening, caring, a welcome hug and a warm smile.

Especially when you've been best friends with someone for seventeen years and are as close as sisters. Someone who knows everything about you - good and bad - and still loves you, that's what's really important.

Yep, that's about it.


In loving memory of my beautiful friend
11 March 1969 - 16 November 2012


I miss you. 

My life is richer for having known you.

  7. Oh Sandy. I am so sorry for your loss. I know that this has been coming, but it is still such a shock. I remember the beautiful post about the fashion show and I remember crying with you when you told me her cancer had returned.

    The world is worse for the loss of a beautiful friend
