I watched The C Word tonight, a BBC film starring Sheridan Smith telling the story of Lisa Lynch’s battle with cancer.
To say I wasn’t prepared emotionally is an understatement , what an amazing portrayal by Sheridan. This girl really is one of the finest actresses of her generation.
The story was very poignant due to my wife’s closest friend being in the middle of her own battle at the moment.
My troubles and anxieties pale into insignificance compared to anyone going through such real life threatening challenges.
It’s truly blown me away and I’ve come across the following quote which just about sums things up for me right now.
“When you arise in the morning think what a precious privilege it is to be alive: to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love” ~ Marcus Aurelius
And on that note, be safe and happy wherever you are.
