R U Ok? Day

Today is national R U OK? Day.
It's a day set aside each year to help inspire Australians to reach out to family, friends and colleagues and ask them if they are okay. It's all about suicide prevention and awareness. By reaching out and asking you can make a difference in someones life.
I know what it is like to lose a family member from suicide. It truly is hard for those left behind.
So start a conversation by asking R U OK it can make all the difference in the world.


Here's what I am thankful for this week:
  • nice weather. It's been really good to get the washing dry in one day rather than needing to wait several days for it to dry on the line
  • being able to spend some time with Mark. We went out shopping for a wedding present for his brother & future sister-in-law
  • pain killers - they've come in handy this week with my back & arm playing up a bit. It's kind of put me off my crocheting but only a teeny bit
  • Angus - he's been getting stuck into his homework for English. I just hope that he pays just as much attention to his other subjects but at least he is getting the work done.
  • good doctors - Brodz has been seeing a psychiatrist for the past month and it's made a bit of a difference. In a good way too (~_~)
What are you thankful for this week?
