Ending The Week With Love …

Every now and then, you see a video that just gets to you.

Sometimes it’s something very sad.

Sometimes it’s something very funny.

Sometimes it’s just something that reaches deep down and squeezes your heart.

This is one of those videos.

It’s beautiful.

It’s beautiful for its genuineness.

It’s beautiful for its love.

It’s beautiful for it’s joy.

And while it reawakened how much I miss my Mum – and actually made me cry – it’s also just bloody lovely.

My favourite bit is the moment he realises his Mum is there and immediately runs towards her shouting “Mama”.

Despite not seeing her for 10 years, his reaction is instinctual … not even leaving time for him to pause in shock.

In the blink of an eye, he goes from being a big guy to a little boy.

That’s how important Mum’s can be to you.

They’re special.

My Mum was that for me.

And Otis’ Mum is that to him.

It’s pretty fucking awesome when you think about it.

Literally, the power of love and compassion.

We could all do with a bit more of that in the World.

So have a good weekend and give a loved one a hug or a call. Everyone will feel better for it.

You almost annoyed me there. Then you came through. I’m guessing that’s because you saw Bonnie and she reminded you how lucky you are and she is.
