Here’s how Michelle Allison introduces a group blog by classmate Rochelle Bugg (MA 2009) and her sisters Hannah and Olivia:
My very lovely friend and her family, who I met at university in Leeds, is currently experiencing something so awful, and yet with a grace and wit I cannot comprehend.
Rochelle Bugg, her sisters, and their mother, sadly lost their father and husband to illness at a young age; and earlier this year received the devastating news that her mother is suffering from an incurable brain tumour. The Bugg family are blogging about their experiences – http://thisisabuggslife.wordpress.com/ - and whilst it is oftentimes a heartbreaking read, it just about re-affirms your belief in humanity.
These three beautiful, intelligent and strong women, along with their incredible mother, are sharing their thoughts and experiences on their blog; and reminding us all that those small trials and tribulations that irk us on a daily basis, are things that are often not worth our time and effort worrying about.
I urge you to visit the Bugg family blog, and to send your positive thoughts and prayers their way. The Bugg family themselves are big advocates of positive thinking, and I’m certainly with them on that.
