No man's land is silent now
Just heavy heart and blood do lay
Upon the fields of battles past
We pray to God the peace to last.
Ninety three years; so long ago
And still brave souls leave home shores
To seek the right, the light, the peace
And pray to God that war should cease.
My thoughts as another Armistice Day is here with us. I prepared this image a couple of days ago to load up today.
And then tonight - my world suddenly changed - Steven (husband) a fit (or so we thought) healthy, non drinking (well only occasionally) non- smoking, non-over weight man felt unwell when we were both in the gym - we had met there and both had our own cars - he came over to me and said he didn't feel well and was going home - I said "tara - see you soon then" but when I arrived home he was not here - I could see he had called my mobile so rang him back, wondering where on earth he was. A nurse at the hospital answered his phone. It transpired when he had got to his car, he felt really ill and knew something was very wrong, so he drove himself to the nearest emergency department - thank heaven he got there in time - he was having a heart attack - unbelievable! They say he will be fine after carrying out emergency surgery earlier tonight - but I am frightened, so very frightened. So, for all you folks out there who think you can work all the hours God sends and take all the stress that your employers throw at you - please take time to look after yourselves - try to find a balance, I know it is hard, especially in these difficult times, but please try - tomorrow may be too late.
