I'll send you a rainbow

Thank you for all your kind comments, left on my last post, or sent via Facebook, text or Royal Mail.

It has been a long week, but we are all doing well. My Dad and I are very practical people and have found it good to be able to get on with sorting the physical things like forms, certificates banks and such. He has been to our house every night for a meal and a lot of chess has been played! Jacob finally beat him for the first time last night.

I had work commitments that kept me busy on Thursday and Friday and on the whole we all feel a great sense of relief that Mum now has some peace. There are still quiet moments, when tears are shed we have had laughter too, I can sense that time will heal all wounds.

I did have a video that kept coming to my mind. Its an old church production that is somewhat outdated in style but not message. I finally tracked it down on YouTube and would like to share it. I watched it a lot with people when I was a missionary for the church. It is somewhat more fitting to me now, than it was then

I grew up with this video. It always terrified me. I was afraid my mommy would pass away too.

I'm sure no matter how old you are it does not get easier to lose a parent. I am so sorry for your loss.
