How nice was this?!

Amongst all the sadness that was yesterday’s bombings we did have a lovely ray of sunshine. We’d just finished dinner, cleared the table and was about to commence the washing up when there was a knock on the door.

A friend was standing there with these for me and gifts for the children!

I don't even mind there's a carnation in there!

I was more than happy with the thank you on Sunday for helping her over the week-end but for her to bring these last night, it was so thoughtful (but really quite unnecessary…).

It was reassuring, especially for the children, that even when faced with yesterday’s evil, there is still kindness and gratefulness not only in the world, but on our street!

May these two gestures never be questioned with… “mum, how much longer?”
