The five years since my husband's death can seem like five months. I am so sad for people who have been bereaved this past year. To be deprived of the comfort of family and friends, and the usual rituals must be heartbreaking and add immeasurably to the anguish.
I had family and friends close by me. They kept me company, had me for meals. took me on holiday with them and supported me in so many ways, both spiritually and practically..and I am so grateful. It means so much. They supported me today with mesages and cards and thoughtful gifts.
I was comforted by listening again to Charlie Mackesey reading The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse. In the introduction he says life is 'sometimes frightening, but beautiful' and says he hopes the book helps us to live with courage.
You can listen to this on Audible free with a months trial and I enjoyed this video. I hope you do too, and that it comforts you.
