With each new season I realise just how much I love and appreciate my front row – made up of a few family members and very good friends.
Supportive would be an understatement when it comes to my front row. They have and continue to play a huge role in my life – each one for different reasons.
We’ve shared years of good times, unpleasant times, crazy times. None of which I ever take for granted. These times are always punctuated with the right amount of rolling on the floor kind of laughter or buckets of tears that are enough to fill a river.
Through all the robust discussions, disagreements one thing is certain – the bond and love strengthens and intensifies.
I’ve evolved and continue to do so thanks to my interactions and time well spent with my front row. How else would I determine my likes, pet peeves or best approach to respond to certain situations.
I’ve had the most trying time over the last few weeks.
It was nasty.
It was unpleasant.
It was like those I just want to scream into a pillow and pull my hair kinda experiences.
I am still standing and much stronger must just add due to God’s grace and the unconditional love from my front row.
As I begin to close that book and start on a fresh, clean, crisp page I look forward to creating and sharing many more memories with my front row; the kind that will last a lifetime. The kind that will find us bursting out into fits of laughter as we look back.
Today, ask yourself: who is in my front row? As you reflect I hope you will realise just how much they mean to you.
