Now it’s Friday and, not only that, it’s a Friday in Lent, so be warned. This video will probably make you laugh and it does contain swear words like ‘F’ and ‘Sh’. In order to avoid the ‘occasion of sin’, you may want to leave watching it until Easter Sunday.

That said, have you ever been tempted by those ‘cheap flights’?

I’m not one for too much nostalgia, but sometimes it’s OK …

Men losing babies

April 4, 2011

I guess it must be nearly 30 years ago now when we had ‘our’ first pregnancy. What a brave new world it was for us!

For me it hadn’t become that real. There was great excitement at what was to come, but no ‘outward signs’ to make it all tangible.

Then, at three months or so, there was the miscarriage.

As a young man I had no idea about its impact. I tried to be sensitive but I just could not prepare myself for how devastating it was for her. In my ignorance and inexperience, all I could do is be way, way more supportive than I thought was needed. In all that, I’m not sure that I ever experienced a very personal sense of loss.

I’m reminded of that time because I stumbled on a Life Matters story this morning: Men Losing Babies.

It very much speaks for itself and I commend it to you.

Today, being 1 April, seems like a good time to turn Wryday a little bit on its head with a little black humour.

Do you ever get to a point where if someone sends you just one more ‘motivating’ email or image and beckons you to send them on to ’10 of your best friends’ with a promised threat or blessing, you’ll scream?

Don’t send these on:

If you’re in need of more black humour, just google ‘demotivation’ and you’ll get all you need!
