Yesterday a young man with a bright future died in a tragic accident.
I don't know him but I do know someone who does and I know the family is sad.
I felt sad all day thinking of a family with broken hearts.
I felt powerless to help them or even to know how I should act,
knowing that they are suffering so.
On the way to uni this morning I popped into the supermarket to get a couple of essentials,
and walked past some super cheap daffodils. They were so cheap that I brought a bucket
and a bottle of water and got some flowers and put them in my car for the day.
I just wanted to remind myself of the circle of life,
there are dark days, but brighter days will come.
I popped them in vases here and there,
a bright spot in the gloomy days.
Sometimes it feels like there are so many big things happening in the world,
things that you have no power over and can't do anything about them.
On those days a vase of daffodils does brighten the space
and the knowledge that bad as things might be,
eventually they will get better again.
