More Sad News...

It just never seems to stop. Yesterday I received a call from my devastated little brother (he's in his 40's) that his father, my step father, had passed. It struck me much harder than I had gauged it would. We were estranged, step father and I. The dynamics of family never cease to baffle me. Suffice it to say, I was always in a forgiving mood, but he was never in a mood to be forgiven, or felt he had nothing to be forgiven for. Even a truce would have been nice. At any rate, there's nothing for it now.

I'm at a loss for words.

    That's so unfortunate, Justine - what a testing time you're experiencing.

    There must be some good news heading your way soon.

    Do look after yourself, please.

    Best wishes from Anna in Edinburgh

    1. It will pass, I hope. Or at least slow to a drizzle instead of a downpour. I'm okay. Just sad and really appreciating life more and more. Thanks, Anna.

  2. I'm sorry for all the sadness in your life right now. Take care, I hope the sun shines soon.
