Life is just so precious. Fragile. You never really know what is going on inside these bodies of ours - they look so darn healthy/normal on the outside. And then something happens to make you all too aware of how quickly things can turn upside down. We had a health scare yesterday with a member of our family which brought this so very obviously to our attention. We are lucky in that everything should be ok in a week or two, thanks so much to one very smart person who picked up on it. Still scares me senseless even so. The words brain and surgery should never be in the same sentence. Ever.
So I'm going to try not to hold my breath for the next few days. Try to take a page out of Thea at For The Visionaries blog and "remember why we are alive and remind us to sit down, look up at the sky and just breathe". Well said. So please be healthy everyone, and do have a wonderful Christmas with the lovely people in your lives if I don't pop in before then.

My sister-in-law is well and hopefully coming home from hospital tomorrow, YAY!
