A full day. Packed. With all the emotions. In the morning, we all went to the funeral of an uncle who had sadly passed away. For some, it was the third visit to the same graveyard in less than 12 months. How do you keep your inner strength to carry you through these sad times? But then, it was the first time to see the son of one of the cousins, a gorgeous baby who immediately too to Pádraig and vice versa. A new life coming into the world as others depart. Is that what life is about? It just continues? And then back home, Pádraig had a special request: and out came the MOTOMed. It must have been so nice to exercise not in the enclosed space of his room, but outside in the fresh air. I went to meet a good friend who is an expert in ‘volunteer management’ and got a crash course in how to approach this best. (More about this later.) Finally, another good friend came in and we spent a few hours writing invitations and envelopes for An Saol Day, prepared a press release, and a letter to invite politicians. About to have a bite to eat now.
