A slice of Humility

Posted by Jeni in LBC | 13 March 2008

The flat is quiet.

Di is performing tonight and Dan has gone with her.

Jim is rehearsing and BB is teaching bass in Shoreditch.

I have just come in from taking Jackson out in the rain for a spot of air.

and now, at 17.21 I am settling in for a quiet night.

My guest today was Christopher Stevens, he has written a book about his autistic son. A gentler, more humble man I have yet to meet. Just made me realise quite how lucky my life is.


I remember asking my mother, when I was little, the meaning of the expression 'There for the Grace of God go I.'

Today I understood.

Have a peaceful night.

"There BUT for the grace of God go I!" Or as I prefer: "There but for the grace of God go you or I!" A very poignant and meaningful saying!

I love it when Mrs Jones gets the red pen out.
What's a "but" between friends,
after all you were only little.

Try seeing the new Australian movie The Black Balloon. It's about autism. It is excellent.

Have a relaxing weekend , look forward to some good blogs next week.
