At the moment I am thinking about how lucky I am.
Not in a smug way.
In a 'how very fortunate I am' way.
With the mister and our daughter today we have had a trip to the potteries, a visit to a City for some shopping, then some lunch followed by a visit to a Cathedral, and are now back at home for a cup of tea. My friend has not had such a good time.....she has been burgled.
She is a single woman.
For years she has lived alone confidently.
She was in the house when the burglary was taking place. She was terrified.
It is not that they/he/whoever took her bag and blackberry and keys and cards and purse and ipod. Nor that they took her car. They took her emotional well being, her confidence, her feeling of security and safety.
