I apologize, dear readers, that I didn’t post last week. We went up to Canada for our holiday and I was unaware that there was no internet. Not a bit! Can you imagine? lol This turned out to be a gift, but that is a post for another day.
Today I have spent eight hours driving from one country to the next and so you will have to forgive me for not doing a *proper* post. Instead, I offer you this picture of an angel, a spirit, a loved one, nestled in close to someone who I believe is broken-hearted. I discovered this illustrator and now author, Charlie Mackesy, on Twitter and his images speak to me. This one takes me to those moments when I am missing Luke and feeling Luke in each breath. This drawing is how I imagine him as close to me – connected to me – in my sadness as he can be. I don’t know what Mr. Mackesy calls this image, but I call it “Comfort from Heaven”. For those of you missing someone you love, I hope it brings you a little peace.
I also offer you this quote on Unconditional Love. This week I sat with my own sadness and tears as I looked out over the lake wishing Luke was there to make memories with us; my heart broke for a new client whose loss is fresh as he is misses his daughter with every fibre of his being; and I was reminded of the delicate dance of grace and grief as I visited with a momma from Canada whose wounded heart has lived too many days without one of her boys. We go on because we have to. The love goes on because… it’s love. Xxx
