I joined a group the other day that was set up in dedication due to a family’s untimely loss, with great sadness upon learning this particular news. As a result, I needed several days to gather my emotions and thoughts before I could source the strength to apologise for any delay in paying my respects towards one’s memory and all those who loved and knew her.
It is extremely painful always, to realise what has happened to a family be it young or old, which explains the delay in paying my respects as I know from my own experience, just how fragile life can be and how important a mother, a wife, a daughter, a sister is. If it were not for the NHS, my children, my husband, my parents and my sister would not still be graced with the pleasure of my company today.
Yet to see how one’s memory can still live on, in every one’s hearts and words of kindness is simply rendering me speechless and in contemplation as to what it could have been like for my loved ones, to miss me.
Life is way too short sometimes for we are all candles in the wind. Carpe diem indeed…
Group hug?! 🙂
Keep on smiling for it is free and does wonders xx
