I Must Confess…I’m not ready

A quick and off-topic confession this week.

I’ve spent the weekend at the hospital keeping vigil over my father who is not going to be coming home. I’m not ready to let him go.

Anyway, please excuse me if I’m not my normally involved host-self. I will do my best to comment on your posts where I can but I think this week is going to be very much devoted to family.

As usual, feel free to link up your confessions and make sure you give some comment love to your fellow confessors too.

Make sure you hug your loved ones tight this week – I know I will be x

    I’m thinking of you. It’s so awful and no one will ever be ready. It’s a hard loss and irreplaceable loss. I’m glad you are there, and I’m glad you can be there for your mum. Words are a little inadequate at this time.

      I’m so glad I’ve been able to be there for them throughout this horrendous illness too. It’s the one thing I’ve been able to do for them and has given me some extra time with them that I will cherish forever.

      Thanks Francesca. I’m doing better than I thought I would now that Dad has left us. Finally home after a week away (with mum in tow) and I’m hoping we can find our new normal. I’m relieved he’s no longer in pain but I wish with all my being that he was still here with us x
