And so we come to the last of this series of Mirror posts, in which I have invited an amazing group of individuals to contribute a guest post where they mirror – whatever that means to them – something of, from or in one of my posts somewhere in this blog.
Have I saved the best to last – who can tell?
But it has an extra importance for me.
I first met Loui 19 years ago in a hospital in North West London. It wasn’t meant to be like that, the plan had been for it to happen at home but maybe that’s the thing about your children - they have their own plans.
When I asked him if he would contribute something I got the usual “yeah, I might”.
Like always I cajoled, reminded, pressed, asked again, and again, and again. .. And he did something else.
Then as we approached mid series he surprised me.
Firstly by his choice, and then by what he wrote.
19 years ago in a North West London hospital he made me cry.
This time he made me laugh.
Tears, joy – that’s what it’s all about eh?
There it is the final mirror post, on the post "YES WE CAN"
