365 Days, Day 21
“Sometimes in our confusion, we see not the world as it is, but the world though eyes blurred by the mind” (Unknown)
Sometimes as you get older, life is a bit blurry around the edges. We get bogged down by the blurry overwhelming mundane boring necessary things right in front of our noses. We forget to look at the bigger picture.
Actually it's just as well things get blurry as we get older: Tom still thinks I am the same "gorgeous" (!?) slip of a girl he married. Mwhahaha, little does he know that I have become all floppy and gravity has taken it's toll. But if he THINKS I am still gorgeous, then that's what I am! Thanks Tom for always loving me and boosting my confidence, and carrying me, and for being my best friend. Love you forever!
Spoke to Aliki today on Skype; she lives in Athens now. After 9 years away, they are moving back to South Africa. She commented on how, at our age, it is difficult to make friends in a new country... I agree with that: it is hard. But I have made a few friends here: thanks Gill for taking on a blurred-round-the-edges-South-African as your friend :)
And thanks Sherell And Stussy for our continued friendship and always including us in family-times: love you X
