Thank you all for your good thoughts and kindnesses. Loss is a funny thing. It's just as bad when you're expecting it as when it hits you in the face. Last week I had both sorts of sorrow in my life. This week I'm focusing on all the joy those two people brought to the world and doing my best to support those closest to them. It's like I'm straining to see that small patch of blue sky when the day is cloudy, or smiling at the rainbow on a blustery rainy day but I know that little patch of blue will grow bigger in time.
