It is 12:50am Friday morning 5th of July, as I begin to write. For most of you that follow me, you will know that my partner (the incredibly wonderful Mr. S) and I, have been going through a rough time over the last week. For those that don’t read me regularly, I shall not go into detail, suffice to say the Funeral was today.
We stepped one foot at a time till we reached this hurdle today and we have now climbed over it. Each day as we grow a little stronger, each day as we support one another, we shall continue walking, until we can reach the finish line and then and only then, we will know that we have made it through. We will help each other survive the pain, try to establish ‘normality’ once again and keep within us the memories of the beautiful lady we lost.
I am writing to say THANK YOU, thank you to all of you who have been so very kind, those who have given words of encouragement and love to myself and Mr. S and his family.
People whom I have never met and will probably never do so, all of you who have made me feel that I have an extended ‘virtual’ family.
We can chat on here and comment on each others work, but this has gone beyond that. I have been fortunate to establish friendships and for that I am grateful, for your comments, your emails.
I shed a tear thinking of the kindness that has been shown and I needed to convey my gratitude to you all for being there, for caring.
We all know the hands of the life clock is not as long as we would wish. For some it stops too early. So immeasurably precious is life, I ask you to grab hold of it with gusto.
Tell those that are close that you love them.
Take photographs – often.
Visit, share, be involved with their lives.
Do not take anything for granted.
Give support to one another.
Hug them or hold their hand – just because you can.
