A tough week

Last Tuesday would of been my brothers 36th birthday.

I am finding it hard to imagine what he would of been like at this age, he will forever be a gorgeous eighteen year old to me.

His birthday, as well as the anniversary of his death, are always tough times of the year.

This year was even tougher.

On Nicholas's birthday this year, my mother and sister attended the funeral of my mums closest friend.

They had been friends for nearly fifty years.

Sonya was one of the few people that has known me for my entire life.
Most of my childhood memories include her and her lovely daughters.

The day before, my mum attended the funeral of another of her close friends.

Unfortunately I could not get a flight out to Australia in time for either funerals.

It has been a tough week.

I'm so sorry. We just passed the 2 year anniversary of the death of my dad on January 29th and his funeral on February 2nd. I hate this time of year. Peace and blessings to you.
