I’ve done quite a bit of physical exercise this week and got frustrated from time to time because I’m not going any faster than I’d wish. Today I went down to the gym for a bit of running and swimming and again (!) I couldn’t go nearly as fast as I went on Thursday.
And then I got home to hear that one of our friends we met in Brussels and who moved back to Ireland a couple of years ago has been diagnosed with stage 2 brain cancer. She’s got a little daughter.
And all that fast swimming seems so unimportant all of a sudden.
