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.

A beautiful tribute, Sue, all the more so you thinking of others and the sacrifice they made, and when your own heart must be heavy with the events of last evening. I wish your husband a speedy recovery following surgery.
I shall keep you both in my thoughts and prayers.
God bless!
Ronnie.

What you say Sue is very true.I think all this ''modern day stress'' placed on some people is responsible for ''younger'' people having heart attacks nowadays.I know of quite a few acquintances of mine,which this has been the case.I am a believer when they say the first one is a ''warning'',so I hope you and Steven heed this warning !!
Take care.
Mick.

Glad to hear Steve had the wisdom to take himself to hospital when he did Sue, and he is very lucky to live in an area where such treatment can be administered so swiftly. I do hope that everything continues on the right path for him and he makes a good recovery. As you say a worrying and frightening time for both of you, therefore all the more reason for you to look after yourself at this time of high stress and strain. Take very good care of yourself.
A beautiful tribute you have created here. Moira

Oh Sue, you must have been so scared, what a horrible shock for you - and for Steve, of course. Hats off to him for keeping his nerve and getting to the safety of hospital. We should never take anything for granted, should we.... And of course, after this warning, you won't, I know. My thoughts are with you both.
And - almost a by the way in the circumstances - a lovely image, pleased to give your the 30th vote Smile

Thank you so much for all your lovely words and thoughts - you will never know how much they mean to me today after what has been the most difficult 24 hours in my life for many a year. I know we never meet but I consider you my friends and my sustenance - I wish I could do more than just say "thank you".

Please forgive me for not looking at your images - I will catch up as and when - hopefully in the morning when I have had some sleep.

And it is still the 11th day of the 11th month. If I feel as I do today, I can only imagine how those who have lost loved ones, or how those who have been injured in recent conflicts feel. I so respect the bravery, stoicism and dignity of all concerned.
