SPECIAL MEMORIES


“The risk of love is loss,
and the price of loss is grief -
But the pain of grief
Is only a shadow
When compared with the pain
Of never risking love.”
~Hilary Stanton Zunin~


Today would have been our Wedding Anniversary.........I do try and keep fairly upbeat on this blog so I'll just say that this week has been a "blue" week.....nothing to do with the course (that's going fine)...it's just been one of those weeks when problems and memories have crowded in and it's taking me a while to "pick myself up and brush myself off". I won't be posting for a few days while I sort myself (and the garden) out, write up my course notes plus spend some time doing some much overdue blogvisiting. Tonight Leanne is coming over and we'll have a takeaway and a couple of drinks...hope you all have a good weekend yourselves.

MISS YOU ALREADY

Hello Ruth
I know I can't imagine how you must be feeling today but this is just to say that I think you are a very brave lady.

We take life for granted. We all need to open our eyes and realize who we are blessed with because none of us are promised tomorrow. My prayers are with you. Enjoy your memories and have your cry, it soothes the broken heart.

How hard it must be for you. You've been so strong but sometimes it just catches up with you and on this day especially. What a lovely photo of two happy people, starting out a new life together, short though it was.

Take care my dear Ruth

Many thanks for all your kind comments and messages. The weekend was filled with more laughter than tears which is just how Mick would have wanted it. Leanne's gone home now and time for me to get on with my neglected studies.

Can't be easy. Thinking of you

Allotment Lady said...

I have been thinking of you - but didn't leave a comment, as nothing I could say would have been adequate to express my feelings for what you are experiencing at this time.

Take time out away from blogging and visiting blogs to please others - just please yourself - we will all be here for you when you come back.xxx
