Thank you so much for all of the kind comments about our loss this last weekend. Its weird to think its been a whole week now- I still half expect her to drive up on a sunny weekend day, like today, ready to go to estate sales with us. I have a feeling that feeling will take awhile to diminish. We had a lovely service for her yesterday and it really couldn't have been nicer. The reception after was a high tea, to honor her English upbringing and she would have loved that. The only thing is that the christmas crackers we had bought and intended to hand out never made it to the church so now we have christmas crackers for the next few holidays and then some! So many people turned up it was just really fantastic and such a testimony to her warm kind friendly nature. One very special thing was that I had basically asked for a very specific sign that she was loving her new home and I got my very specific sign yesterday. It just made me feel so good and completely reassured.
Now that we have the service behind us, as well as all of the other myriad of things that have to get done at someone's passing, I feel like we can really sit and be with our grief and let everything take on a more natural pace. So thanks again for all of the support and kindness. Normal crafting fun will soon resume!
