Be careful out there

A couple of my friends are having a pretty rough time with their health and that of those close to them these days.

Reading about them reminded me of having a big operation many years ago and how that made me realise that we are brought up to expect that everything will be OK. That it is our right that everything should be normal and we get upset if it isn't. In fact everything is fragile and risky and we should think ourselves lucky when it goes OK.

Here's hoping they all continue to improve.
