Gosh I've been quiet

Well folks I must apologise for being so quiet over the last few days but to let you understand I've had curtain poles falling off the walls... live in an 8 yr old house & the walls have been crap since day 1.... in addition to this my mums car is in the garage at the moment so I'm running her around everywhere she needs to go.
I have just had a check at some challenges & will do my very best to enter some tomorrow but will just have to see how the day works out.
Tomorrow you see is the 6th anniversary of my brothers death.
He was tragically killed in a road traffic accident which has left only my Mum & myself (yes we do both have husbands but you know what I mean...)
Well tomorrow I have to take my mum to the cemetary as she has no car & this will be the first time we have gone together... we normally go it alone where we can say what we please but tomorrow I have to be there for her.
As his sister I have come to terms with the fact that he is gone & I just have to accept that... my mum on the other hand has never accepted his death & I'm not sure that she ever will... understandable as parents are not supposed to see their children away.
No matter what I will be there to hold her hand & dry away the tears but the thing that would be happiest of all is if I get to see her smile just once tomorrow.
There is a possiblity of this however, as my nephew (brothers son) called me tonight to discuss coming up for a short holiday & he is going to call her tomorrow... this will make her so happy.
Sorry for all the long story but at least now you know why I've been quiet...
Catch up soon

Kim Dellow said...

Hi Lorriane, think you have every right to be a bit quiet at the mo. Hope everthing is alright. Kim

Lorraine, I am so sorry for your loss, I'm sure it feels like it was yesterday. Unfortunately I know your mother's pain . I imagine as a child seeing your mom hurt so deeply has got to be very painful, just be there for her, let her know that it is ok to NOT BE OK.
