This blog was so not planned today, but as a blogger you often get ideas out of the blue when you least expect it, and often the unplanned ones are often the best.
Today, or more this morning I decided to watch a bit of Youtube. My son was already for school and was happy watching helicopters on the TV, so after doing my cleaning, had breakfast, got dressed, I sat downstairs on the sofa and opened my phone to Youtube and came across this interview of Vinnie Jones. If you aren’t sure as to who he is, he was a British ex footballer turned actor, talking about his wife Tanya who had died of cancer, and how it has been since she died and about when she died.
You have to watch it, it blew me away and I even tweeted about it. His story will really pull at your heart strings.
It really struck a cord with me, because we can often lose our way in life and feel that there is no one to love out there, but watching this video reminds me that true love does exist and can truly happen for all of us.
LOVE isn’t just about romance it is the LOVE we have for your kids, friends and family that can often help you get through tough times, and want to be around those people. I remember my Nan (my mum’s mum) saying that every night without fail her and my grandad would kiss each other goodnight because you never knew what tomorrow would bring and that is so true.
I remember working at Butlins Holiday Camp in the UK, in Bognor Regis, and my grandad and my nan’s words were so true, because we lost a dear friend of ours Nigel through adult cot death. There was no warning, nothing. He went to bed that night and didn’t wake up the next morning. He wasn’t a heavy drinker, didn’t smoke and was a true grafter and didn’t touch drugs, and I remember feeling so sad, for a long time afterwards, because it was like “Why?”.
I did love Nigel my husband did too. Love doesn’t mean you have to be sexually involved but that you have a strong connection with someone. The greatest love and friendships for me are ones where you can literally talk about anything and everything and it doesn’t matter. You just love each others company, and we should do more to show our love and respect for our friends and family we have in our lives, as you never know what is around the corner.
I think this is a lesson for us all. We should love more #truelove, to be kind, be generous and forget about the petty things. I moaned at my husband today because he moved some items in my son’s room, and after watching Vinnie Joneses Interview, made me realise “Was that really so important?”, “Was moving Henry’s toys really going to effect the day or Henry’s world?”. Of course not.
You just sometimes like my husband often says, got to let it go, as you know that the ones we love won’t be around forever. Whenever I feel myself being a pain in the arse I always remind myself that:
YOU HAVE TO LOVE OTHERS LIKE YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE LOVED YOURSELF.
NO MATTER WHAT THEY DO THAT CAN CAUSE CONFLICT LOVE IS WHAT HOLDS US TOGETHER!
I would like to know what love means to you? How you keep the love going? You can leave a comment below.
