I’m right here, dear one. Every single step of the way. Whatever you need, name it, and if I can possibly do that thing- it’s yours. Let me be your rock now, mate: lean on me as hard and often as you want. Meanwhile, loads of fervent prayers for, and limitless love to you and Sue. “All shall be well”- someone very wise once commented that to me. XOXOXO
You are so right though – we need to live today. We have no guarantees for a tomorrow. I am so sad for your sister. My sister is having her operation as I type this… hopefully she will have a better outcome.
There’s a Sarah McLaughlin song that I was thinking of the other day that goes ‘hold on. hold on to yourself, cuz this is gonna hurt like hell. What is it in me that refuses to believe this isn’t easier than the real thing? Oh my love, you know that you’re my best friend; you know that only time will tell’. This is the gathering up of moments, and the sharing of memories once, twice more together. But also the holding of hands just for that moment of holding, and the holding of that moment.
Peace be with you both on the journey of the next months.
