Today is a sad day. We heard of the death of our Bestman and friend Bob. We never lost touch with him but we had not seen him face to face for nearly forty years. Last year we met up with him at our Golden Wedding anniversary and again this year with five other friends from the park we used to go to as teenagers.
Playing football after dark Meeting mates down the park Two lads growing through their teens. Full of hopes , fun and dreams.
Both became each others right hand man. One made best man, so grand. Each had the others wing Staying friends was their thing.
As years went by the meetings dwindled Though memories were often kindled. Eventually a yuletide greeting With promises of a reunion meeting.
The years and miles kept them separated. Til an anniversary meeting was fated. Soon the years just fell away As they celebrated 50 years since that wedding day.
Then a meeting with friends from the park. Food and beer talk of aging, having a lark . Talk of knees and operations Grandchildren, bills and vacations.
A simple operation on the cards Who’d of thought the outcome could be so hard. The heart once so big and strong Could not cope and he was gone.
We are left behind unbelieving Only just back together, now left grieving.

To reach for the stars ✨ is what we all have in our hearts. Whether we admit it or not , we might tell ourselves we are reaching for success, fame, love but truly we are reaching for the stars. Why? Because we are made up of stardust and to the stars we must return.
Too many people spend their lives racing around in circles trying to beat others to their goal. Look at America and Russia, those two countries spent a lot of time and money trying to get into space or to the moon first. All this while too many problems on this planet have gone through the roof . War , Famine, Greed, Plagues and Destruction of our planet too. Okay I will change track before I get too preachy!
Two by two we pair off in life, it may not last but it might. Too many relationships fail, sometimes by too much effort on side and sometimes not enough but that is life. We all know that don’t we.
Well I think it’s time for me to wind this up before I get too deep and offend one or two of you.
Have a great Saturday, be kind to yourself and others too, try to do at least two kind things today.
