Their Bad Mother

Their Bad Mother


I said the other day that life would go on, and it has gone on, in its way, although it’s really gone on in much the same way as it was going last week – dealing with death and its aftermath, although now we have the added complication of a forest fire raging at our doorstep and it just all feels a little apocalyptic and that’s making it hard to cope.

So, yeah. I’ve not been able to post. I’ve not been able to do much other than try to get through all of this stuff. That, and try to keep my heart quiet. Still. Peaceful, to the extent that it can be.

Which means that I need to try to keep everything quiet. Still. Peaceful. While I muddle through this.

I hope that you’ll bear with me.

I am so sorry for the loss of your father. I don’t think we know how we will react to the death of a parent until it happens. There is no way around grief, just through it to the other side. It is difficult to believe, but a time will come when you don’t think about this grief every day, this grief won’t catch your attention so overwhelmingly. And, then the good memories will take over, like treasure. Because all of those good memories are in your heart like treasure in a treasure chest. The treasure will be revealed to you in the most amazing and beautiful ways. Hang in there baby, you can do this. And, we are hear to listen. You can count on us. We have your back.
