Reflection

For this week's word of the week there can only be one word

REFLECTION



I spent the early part of the week remembering little snippets of conversations that I had with my niece over the Easter Weekend - one particular highlight took place in a toilet cubicle at the local farm attraction (at the top of her voice) "Auntie Carrie you should probably have a wee now too", quickly followed by "Ooh Auntie Carrie, I like your pink knick-knicks - are they on back to front?" I will now be sure to wear more appropriate underwear on family days out!

On Wednesday it was the 5 year anniversary of my Dad passing away. Of course it gets easier over time, life has to go on. But just occasionally it hits me like a sucker punch that he's not here. I had a quiet day looking at photos and just remembering him and reflected on how life has changed in the five years since I saw him last.

Two extremes of emotions perhaps but then life has a habit of doing that!
