I know ... pathetic ... but I learnt a lot from Downton Abby last night.
When Mrs Hughes said of Ethel's chosen path "There's no coming back for that girl" my heart broke.
I honestly believe that there is a way back for everybody. There HAS to be. There simply has to be. It's the very essence of humanity. Grace and forgiveness. I will always let those in my life know that no matter what .. they can always turn back around and come home and start again.
When Violet said to Edith "You have a brain and you are a woman of moderate ability, stop your whining and find something to do" I thought Okay. Okay I will.
