So here is the layout. It is of my middle daughter Jane in Lady Dixon Park, Belfast 2 years ago. I remember it was a lovely sunny Sunday afternoon (just as today), and there was a brass band playing in the park. The girls played with their skipping ropes while we sat on a blanket with Sam, who was just over 6 months old.

I have had a lovely weekend, got to see friends and family.
Tonight I was able to get to a special service at church where the topic was ‘My Faith and Mental Illness’. I feel that often there is a stigma about mental illness and depression, particularily in christian circles. I have suffered from post natal depression after the birth of our son, and it has given me just a glimpse of what a dark and lonely place the world can be for those who have depression and other mental problems. We don’t feel guilty if we break our leg, but seem to when it is depression. The speaker tonight was a Consultant Psychiatrist, and spoke on all aspects, giving a christian perspective. I hope we can make it more acceptable within our church and community, and this was another step along that road. Phew – that was a bit heavy, sorry about that.
Must stop my ramblings,
Hope your sunday was special,
Take care for now.
