Grief~a small word with a huge meaning. It rocks up uninvited, makes itself at home and before you know it, its joining you each and every day.
Where you go, it goes.
Its like a constant shadow, always there, sometimes its quiet and gentle, other times it leaps up and slaps you in the face, catching you unaware.
It brings tears~ sometimes of happiness as it reminds you of the good times and sometimes of sadness as you ache for those things you will never have, see or do again.
They say that to grieve means you have loved and felt love that’s why it hurts so much.
Much like the sea, the waves of grief ebb and flow, back and forth,up and down. Good days and harder days.
Grief is here to stay, however it will never take away the love and memories that will live on to be cherished forever.❤x
Dad this ones for you~I know you would be surprised that me your youngest daughter and biggest wimp going went and had this done today! I was quite suprised myself to be honest but these words~your words mean so much to me.
Dad I miss you more than words can say. I heard your song before I went in so I know I have your approval.❤x
Yesterday I upgraded my phone and this afternoon I was checking that everything had crossed over ok,especially my text messages. I came across some messages from my Dad and as it happened as I scrolled through,the message I came to was one arranging for us to go out for dinner with Mum and Dad the night before Dan and I went to Paris.
I read it and it made me smile,I could hear his voice in that text, I tried to read some more but the tears in my eyes wouldn’t let me.
It really is true when people say you never realise how moments quickly become a memory.
I know we are lucky very lucky to have such wonderful memories to cherish now and forever. ❤x
