MY WORD OF THE WEEK.
Last Friday was my uncle’s funeral. I wasn’t able to go as I had no transport, but I heard that he had a good send off. It’s hard to believe that my aunt and uncle were in my life for so long, and now I have had to say a final goodbye to them both.
Today, I will be attending the funeral of my Sister-in-Law from my first marriage. She was a big part of my life for 15 years from when I met her brother when I was 16. She was more like a mother to my ex husband and he lived with her before we moved in together. I’ve not seen much of her since my divorce, but she did invite me and Graham to her wedding to her current husband. It’s another final goodbye.
It’s sad saying goodbye, but it’s something you have to deal with because there is only one thing in life that we can be sure of, and that is that one day we will all die.
I saw another of my Sister-in-laws the other day. This one was the ex wife of my brother and I’ve not seen her for many years. I was a bridesmaid at their wedding when I was just 6 years old, so she was a huge part of my life while I was growing up. It wasn’t until I saw her that I realised how much I missed her from my life. My brother has another wife now, they’ve been together for 30 years and she’s very special to me too, but sometimes saying goodbye to past relatives even when they are still alive can be difficult.
Sorry my post is so sad this week. I’ll be reading all your posts and hopefully they’ll make me feel happier.
