Losing a parent just plain hurts, a coldness pervades my soul, sleeplessness haunts, and I do not want to go to work, nor do I want to face the dental surgery which will happen at 3 pm today.
Can you tell I am just not having a good morning? It is a deep dark forest, but there are paths leading to lightness and happier times, I know.
In a bright sunbeam there is the news that daughter, Anne will be coming from FL to attend the funeral and be with the entire family. She always sheds light in her presence and it will be lovely to have all three of my children together as we honor their grandfather. Anne is his first born grandchild and I will always remember the celebration of her birth around the dining room table at Mum and Dad's as we all sat and admired her on the day we came home from the hospital.
Off to work!
