Two Years Today
(Boonah, Qld, Aust.)
Today (20th November) is the second anniversary of the death of my husband - John.
The time coming up to this has been a lot harder than the first anniversary - maybe also because a lot has happened this month - my closest brother has been diagnosed with bowel cancer, but has blocked carotid arteries, so an operation is very touchy - they may put stents in the carotids first -he will have to wear a colostomy bag for the rest of his life - but that is something a lot of people cope with.
Also in the last two weeks, a long time friend died of cancer -he was only diagnosed three months ago.
But some good has happened, my grandaughter has contacted me for the first time in four years (circumstances with estranged parents) - we are talking on skype all the time - so that is a lovely thing to have happened.
My life at the moment is a real roller coaster - next year I think I will just continue October through till the 1st December - wipe November out all together.
I miss my darling every day - I am trying to live a happy life without him - but at times like this, it is very hard.
Goodbye, my darling love.
