Yesterday

Yesterday I wrote a post  then removed it almost immediately. It was the 8th anniversary of my Dad's death yesterday and as soon as I posted it I felt like it was too personal. I know a lot of you still saw part of it in your readers etc or may have even read it before I removed it. I have had some of the most beautiful and lovely emails from so many of you to see if I am ok.  You know who you are. I really appreciate that so many of you took the time to write. Thankyou from the bottom of my heart. It was really so very kind. I am feeling ok, just in a bit of shock that it has been so long since I saw him...So big hugs to all of you...

  1. My dear girl, I didn't see the post so I can't speak to it...so I'll just say what comes to mind.
    It's been 10 years for me, there are moments - like a trapdoor in my mind, that I fall through and find myself surprised...that it has been so long. There is music I would want him to hear, a story that he would have laughed long and loud at, a little girl he should see. Still, it's alright and I am ok and in those moments I am apt to smile and chuckle to myself.

    Much love

  4. Sometimes just the act of writing it can be completely cathartic. Sending cyberhugs to you today.

  6. Hoping you are ok - it's only 2 months since I lost my dad and I can see how it won't really feel much different even in 8 years time and how grief occasionally catches up with you and runs over you like a steam train. x

  7. I didn't see it Cath but I am sending you lots of love for yesterday and everday.
    Funnily (not ha ha) I just wrote a post about some awful, awful news that I got from a friend this morning. Not details, just about how it made me feel. It was great to get it out but then I also decided that it didn't belong here and I deleted it. Writting it was cathartic but deleting it felt right.
    I wish I could give you a real life hug but I can't so I'm just letting you know I am thinking of you. XX

  10. Thinking of you around this time. It's never an easy thing and often sadness is in the future that they're not part of as well as the memories of the things missed. All the best. Lou.
