Someone I know died yesterday. I hadn't known her very long and I wouldn't say I knew her very well, but the nature of our acquaintance meant that I felt quite close to her. It was such a shock, one minute I saw her sitting on the wall, smiling as she always did and within a couple of hours she had died. It was a very sad day today and I imagine the next few weeks could prove even sadder as she had young children. I will miss her as will everyone who knew her. She was very well liked.
The photo is one I took last Autumn at school, isn't it lovely? On days like this I need something to make me smile and see the beauty in the world.
