E and M popped in on a random visit tonight at 10.30pm. Luckily I had a bottle of Fresita in the refrigerator. We popped open the bubbly and got to talking. M has been in Palestine all summer working on a refugee-camp. It kind of puts things in perspective...here me and E have been complaining about men or the lack of them (which ever is a problem...) all summer while M has been broadening her horizons and developed her understanding of different cultures.
I keep this blog in order to remember the good things in life. Tonight was a reminder of that.
Here's another reminder of how good we have it: http://www.newsweek.com/photo/2010/08/15/best-countries-in-the-world.html
Live each day to the fullest, don't take life for granted. Recently heard that a friend (not one of my close ones, but a good person who is loved by many) is terminally ill. That too puts things in perspective.
