"Think of all the beauty still left around you & be happy. " - Anne Frank
This week has thrown my usual positivity. It started last Sunday when my boyfriend suffered a stroke on holiday and has since spent seven days in an Austrian hospital. Thankfully, he is doing well, but getting him back home is proving to be more of a drama than anybody ever imagined. Although, it seems an air ambulance might be being organised as I type. We have our fingers crossed that he will be firmly back on wet, British land by mid next week at the latest, anyway. Here's hoping!
It's very easy to be sucked into a black hole of negativity, but even having something as simple as daffodils around (they're like little rays of sunshine, aren't they?) has helped perk me up a lot. Anyway, when this quote was retweeted on Twitter, it stuck with me & as I was doodling this morning to take my mind off things, I thought I would add it to my page.
What makes you happy, when you're having a rough time?
I think I'm going to bake some cookies next (because sugar solves everything!)
[update 25.3] : he is safely back home after a trip in an air ambulance. i can't thank you all enough for the support, i'm extremely, extremely grateful.
