Today is the first day back to school for my son. He was not looking forward to it, but I’d got him safely into the class when I turned around and saw one of the other mum’s I had met through my son’s kinder.
What she told me, absolutely floored me, and with tears in my eyes, I type this, reliving the news that my son’s friend has lost his mum. She was murdered in her own home. Taken from her four year old son, I still cannot fathom how this came about, or why, all I know is that the world has lost a genuinely warm and loving human being. And a young boy, will cry for his mother, taken from him, far too young.
So tonight, when you kiss and cuddle your loved ones before bed, tell them how lucky you are to have them in your life.
