In this day and age I am always surprised by the love I receive. On Saturday I went for my annual eye test and was seen by a lovely lady. There are bits of the test I don't like and I was not looking forward to it as I had a bit of a head cold and was not feeling myself. This lovely lady got me through it. As we chatted she asked if I had been on holiday yet and I said no. I explained about being a carer and loosing my mum. This lady explained that she had lost both parents within six weeks. We chatted, compared notes and thoughts. It was wonderful. Even if she had not told me all about her experiences I would have said what a lovely lady. It just goes to show you out of what I thought was going to be a long and difficult examination was made simple and transforming by the lovely lady I saw.
