Crazy hard

2009-02-07 056

I know it's been a few weeks since I last posted and a bunch of you have written to ask what's going on. Thank you for your concern - it's lovely to be missed and I really do appreciate it. Sadly, these past few weeks have been very difficult for our family - A.'s dearly beloved grandma passed away, and though she lived a long, full and wonderful life, her passing was unexpected and shook us to the core. We've spent this time with our family, trying to accept the fact that at the next dinner, at the next birthday, she will only be watching us from above. It's crazy hard.

I haven't really felt like picking up my camera, but I saw something the other day that I know she would have really liked and I want to make it and share it with you. I hope it will be soon.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Expected or unexpected it is never easy to lose someone who means so much to you. Take time to grieve and remember, and look after yourselves.

Oh wow, Irene. Grief is a very complex creature and affects everyone in it's own unique way. You've heard all the advice, and know things in your head - it's just hard to convince the heart that the pain of loss will go away. Take your time. The day will come when the joy of memories will be stronger than the sting of separation. And your dear grandmother would tell you to go ahead and cook, I think. It might not make you feel better, but those who get to smell the numminess will be grateful.
