In sickness and in health

Last week certainly threw a curved ball with Jay, nina’s boyfriend and Jane, Elaine’s spouse in hospital. Both share the same birth date, just a coincidence I’m sure! 

   
As we waited for news it was good to see the well wishes received for their swift  return home. Jane was home by friday, Jay on Sunday.

Nina was really upset by the enforced separation but to her credit she coped admirably, and also with her new job, no mean feat.

It always strikes me how people cope in difficult circumstances. Some can take a positive from it, others fall to pieces. But I find that it’s not what happens but how you deal with it that is important and being surrounded by those that love you and you love in return can sustain and fortify you through difficult, challenging times.

I know that I have a loving and supportive extended family, that pull together offering what comfort we can, even if it is only a phone call or text.

Sometimes it is the smallest gesture that can work wonders, laughter can quite often be the best medicine.

I’m sure Jay and Jane will recover quickly and be back to their best soon, safe in the knowledge that we are always here for them. Sharing lives together is through the bad as well as the good times and having that special someone there definitely helps to face up to difficult challenges and see light at the end of the tunnel.
I am so proud of Jay and Nina and how they have coped this week, together.🤐💕👏🏻👏🏻
