If your house looked like it might burn down, what would you save before you ran outside?
Amy, Rosie’s very close friend, had that problem last week. . . . hold on a minute, pause there. If your house looks like it might burn down, that’s bigger than ‘a problem’ right? And ‘a dilemma’ would take too long to think through. She had that… that…that split second decision to make. And amongst a small number of very important things, she grabbed a card Rosie had written her. And really really thoughtfully told us about it.
It’s ok. The house didn’t burn down. And she’s ok. But it got us thinking. People, cats, dog for sure would be top of the list. But there’s some pictures, a bear and a couple of handwritten things I’d be devastated to lose. And I’ve never really thought before about what I’d want to save.
Last week was full of thoughtfulness. Including Cal sending me a lovely card, some flowers and some chocolates; and Sylv finding a couple of pictures of her, Rosie and me which she framed as a present from both my daughters.
Thoughtfulness is good, isn’t it.
