This is a tough one to write this week.
Yes, I've been struggling with my depression, and some general health issues, but that isn't the reason it's hard.
Earlier this week an old friends daughter lost her fight with Cystic Fibrosis.
She was an utterly beautiful girl, who was always smiling.
My thoughts are with her mum, dad and brother, all the time.
It's so hard to write about cheerfulness, when your heart is aching for a genuine reason, but I do have one.
I am grateful for modern medicine.
It gave us 20 years of this beautiful girl.
It gave her the chance to be the inspiration she was.
It gave us a chance to understand more about this dreadful condition.
It gave her life.
So, today, walk outside and take a deep breathe for B, who is at peace now
