I’m sat in bed and I got to thinking after receiving another WhatsApp from my beautiful nephew in Australia (a nephew who was, and still is, like my baby, my own son even though he’s 39 now with children of his own)! He’s continuously asking me am I ok and when I answer yes, he asks am I sure. He tells me he misses me and he’s thinking about me etc etc etc. So, I got to thinking, you know what, life goes by so very quickly and we never know what it will bring with it, missing someone isn’t nice, as we all very quickly got taught. I thought, he doesn’t have to miss me, not whilst I’m still on this earth, why should he. Why?! I haven’t a reason Consequently, I’m going to see him. I booked a flight just now. I have been lucky enough to visit him several times since he moved there 4 years ago, in fact I only came back from there 6 months ago but so what. I’ll go again. Life is about spending time with people we love and care about whenever possible and whilst we can. I always knew that but, I know it even more so now!
This is what internet banking, online flight reservations and the inability to sleep very much does for you!!!
I just hope my Manager has the same outlook as I do when I go into work tomorrow and ask him to cover my shifts at short notice. Yes, I hope he does for his sake, my sake isn’t bothered, I’m going regardless…:))) x
