It’s funny how one word can get you off and thinking …
I managed to be one of the lucky few who got the last Harry Potter DVD delivered a day ahead of release, so of course as soon as it arrived I looked at it with longing and waited patiently until I had built another album, designed an album, checked in on FB, responded to numerous emails … and did my housework … I know, I know, I don’t know how I managed to delay it, I hadn’t seen it yet, I waited.
I’m a sentimental soul, I am affected deeply by certain things and I am loyal to the core. This is what is known as a codicil.
So, I sat and watched … I laughed, I cheered, I roared “YES” and I cried … wait, I SOBBED. I’m going to clear that up in a second.
I rebranded with my “Love, Life” strapline … why? Well, I love life, I shoot LOVE and I shoot LIFE … and I respect both. I am appreciative of my Life and what I have been through and achieved in my (ahem) xx years … I am appreciative of those around me … BUT
One word cropped up a couple of times in the HP movie … that word was ALWAYS. Both times, it got me sobbing to the core, thinking “OMG I would LOVE to have someone who is there for ME always”.
I know, right?
So, I’m sitting sobbing quietly, the movie credits are rolling, and John (my long-suffering other half) says “whats up” … so I tell him what I just told you guys and say “I would dearly love to have someone, anyone, say they would be there for me always, just one person”.
(Grab some hankies ladies)
John looked at me and said, in his usual casual, offhand fashion … “Gill, don’t you know that I have always been there for you and I always will?” …
After 15 years together I am so thankful that someone has my back, no matter what. What more can I ask for.
Have a fantastic weekend and December (Christmas month BTW!!) … and remember to tell your other half something nice every so often.
Thank you for reading this … Gill x
