Feeling a little Blue…

(True Love & Memories)

Forgive me for neglecting my blog this week but I have found it hard to be cheery.

Truth be told I am feeling a little blue.

My Grandma is very poorly & may not be with us much longer.
She has been in hospital for more than 3 weeks now.
She is such a brave woman, having to stay in hospital away from my grandfather who she has been married to for 68 years, & she has not had to stay in a hospital since my mother was born 60 years ago.

I spent a lovely day with her when I went to stay with Mum & Dad back in March, I told you about it I think. We went for tea at the Spa Pavilion in Felixstowe, a place she always took me as a child, it felt so right to do. My Mum says they talked about our tea at the Spa the other day and how lovely it was. I’m glad she enjoyed it as much as I did.

So if I’m not around much, please forgive me.

I find that it hard to write when I feel like this; the words don’t seem to come out right!

Love you Grandma xxx

Awww sorry to hear that your Grandma is so ill Sophie. Granadparents provide so many lovely memories. When I was at Uni, I staryed with one set of Grandparents for the 4 years I was there and it was so lovely to spend so much time with them as an adult and learn so much about my family I otherwise would never have done. I miss them still. My other Grandfather died a few years ago and my Grandmother is still alive but is just a shell. She died in spirit the day he did, and it is quite heartbreaking to see her so frail and just waiting to 'go'. They were such a a high flying couple and she worked full time as a secretary until 82 only retiring 'cos she thought she had to not because the company wanted her to leave or she couldn't do the job! I cherish all memories of them and know I am lucky to have had them all present in my life. Memories are everything and I am sure that you have so many that will comfort you and make you smile. A new season may start for you, but the memories will always stay with you...thinking of you xxx

Oh! Sophie darling such a sad time for you and your family. Today, is the first year anniversary of my mum's passing, so it is a blue day for me too. It is so difficult to see those you love suffering and passing away. Stay strong, I am certain you have loads of good memories to carry you through. I will pray for your family.
