Looking For A Little Ray of Sunshine

26 May

Hi all,

I know my posts have been a little morbid lately.  Just the way life is at the moment.  Hopefully, things will be a little more cheery soon.

*****

Whichever way you look at it, I ain’t gonna lie to you, people.  It’s been a very tough week.

Yes, I know.  We’re still only on Thursday.

Sunday night saw an ugly stomach viral bug brewing in our household.

Despite having to rug up in daggy purple bed socks, flannelette pyjamas and hugging a hot water bottle, I still had the shakes.

A true vision of loveliness.

The rest of the week has seen the twinlets have all sorts of nasty, gooey, greenish stuff coming out of all ends – tops, bottoms, noses…

And while I can at least try to recover at home with the boys, poor Hubby has had to deal with going into the office.

Yesterday afternoon, this wretched virus took its toll.  He actually called me from work to say that he was still so nauseous he had to lie down on the floor of an empty meeting room at his office.

Yet, in the midst all my gripes and groans, I consciously stop myself.  My woes are inconsequential.

Because I know there’s a family out there who are heartbroken.  A family who have lost their beloved daughter and loving sister.

A terribly sweet young man who’s mourning over the love of his life.  His best friend.

She was only 23.

Then I think of the cruel paradox.

That sometimes it takes a tragic loss to remind us to hug our children a little tighter.  Or to tell our nearest and dearest more often that we love them.

All I can do is pray.

Pray earnestly for this family in this difficult, painful time.

To keep them close in my thoughts.

    Oh I’ve had those days and weeks too. I hope you are all feeling better. And so kind of you to be thinking of others during a tough time…

      It was a sad time because she was such a beautiful person – inside and out. And so close to her family.
      This week is looking a little better…
      Thanks for dropping by 🙂
