I visited a neighbour today who is in a nursing home and promised myself to stay at home no matter my age or condition. The good news is: she will return home next week because her husband decided she’d be a million times better off if he looked after his wife himself. Then I visited the home of another survivor of a severe Acquired Brain Injury today and his family and am in awe of their love, positivity and determination.

There are many people around us doing heroic works of love every day – often unknown to us. They are my heroes and my saints.
