At Rest

 It's hard to believe that it's now been a week since my dear Mother-in-law passed away. We're all just so numb. The funeral was yesterday and was such a tough day and we're all so tired and feeling drained emotionally. I've had the last three days off work for which I'm grateful for.



  1. Jen, I am so sorry you have lost your mother-in-law. This is a verysad time for your family. My thoughts are with you and yours right now.

  2. Jen I am so sorry for your loss too. Our best friend took his own life 3 days ago so I totally understand your grief. We are feeling guilty, sad, angry , frustrated at the loss.

  3. Thank you both for your messages of condolence. I'm still finding it hard to believe that she's gone - after being a part of my life for the last (nearly) 30 years.

    Janine, I too am sorry to read of the loss of your friend and hope that you are doing ok.
