That old saying "there's nowt as queer as folk" is so true. People can be funny old creatures can't they.. there is good and bad in everything but recently I've been thinking a lot about people in general.

Some people are the most amazing, kind & thoughtful beings. They are your rocks & you know you couldn't get through without them. People who put you before they put themselves and who despite having their own problems, are always there for you no matter what. They make you laugh. They make you cry (happy tears are ok!). They do little things that make a huge difference to your day. They are completely selfless & genuinely care. You can't ever imagine those people not being in your life. You don't want them to ever not be.

Other people unfortunately aren't so fabulous. They probably think they are though. Some people can be very selfish but then that's life I suppose. Then you get the ones who don't really care. They might make out they do when in actual fact they don't really. As hard as it is, c'est la vie!

Then you get people who are pretty much strangers yet they show so much kindness towards you. How does that even work? People you don't really know can sometimes be a thousand times more thoughtful than those you do. Another one of life's mysteries!

Throughout childhood, school, college & university if you go, in the workplace, socially and right through to adulthood, you will come across so many different people. Some of those people will be a part of your life forever. Some will impact on you massively but they won't always be around. Some you hope to always be there but for whatever reason it doesn't always happen. Some may be around but won't always make you feel happy. Some will make you happy just by you knowing they are in your life somehow.

Even though my daughter is such a little person, I see how much people influence her. Other children have a huge impact on her & we all know how funny kids are but they can also be mean. It breaks my heart seeing her upset sometimes but it's all a learning curve for what life will throw at you. People can be mean whatever age you are!

I suppose I'm just very grateful for the people in my life who make me smile, who think of me & who care. The people who are just there. Whether I've known them for 1 day or 30 years it doesn't matter. For every not so fabulous person there are a whole load of amazing ones.

If you're reading this & you know you're one of my rocks then thank you & I love you.

    1. Aw Lis that makes me smile lots. Thank you sweetie xx

  2. The old saying is very true! I always find it funny how people will come and go from our lives in the most natural way and how some just stick around aways. I've found that a lot go when faced with a sick friend, but I guess they aren't really true friends. I love how I've made amazing friends online, you being one of them! Your sparkly, fun personality really lightens up the world!
    I think Lucia will grow up to be a lovely caring person just like you.

    1. Aw Emma :-) thank you hun & I feel the same about you! One of the only good things to come from this illness isn't it..the fab people we've met xx

    2. It's so true! The best and most unexpected silver lining! Xx

  3. And you my dear are one of the first types. Even though I know first hand just how big your heart is there are still times I think Wow! this woman goes above and beyond to make people happier. But then again you are a fairy princess and it's just in your glittery blood to deliver sparkle and cheer. This world is a melting pot of so many different characters and no doubt each person we meet good or bad leaves some imprint on us and shapes who we are. Xx

    1. Oh you little babe. That's so lovely xx you are pretty amazing too!
