Loss and what to learn

On the 8th January we lost an amazing woman, my Mum aged 41. Words cannot begin to quantify and describe the loss that my family and I now face.

It really does drum home quite how precious life really is and that you simply cannot afford to take ANYthing for granted, in particular your health.

Wake up every day and ask yourself, what can I do to make the most out of today? What can I do to enrich the world? I know it is possibly sounding like I have gone utterly nutty however just think about it, what right have any of us that are firstly alive and secondly of good health got to waste an opportunity to not enjoy what is around us or lastly but most importantly who is around us. To not would simply be an insult to those who have sadly lost those opportunities.


He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much


  1. Oh Roxy that is such sad news, so sorry about your mum, and what a beautiful picture. So scary to think that I will be 41 in 2 years, that's far too young.
    Your words are so true and hope you do make the most of every minute, remember your beautiful mum will be with you in your heart forever.
    Sending you lots of (((hugs)))
