Feeling so tired ...

... and very sad.  It's been a tough week.  Mum arrived on Sunday to stay with me - so lovely to have her company.  We spend a lot of time talking about Tracey - remembering her when she was young and sharing stories about her.  But I haven't felt much like making any cards - I thought I would, I thought I'd find it therapeutic.  But instead, I've enjoyed being with Mum and Kathryn.

Today, my brother-in-law rang to say that the funeral is set for next week - we still don't have a cause of death - we're waiting to hear from the coroner's office.  But at least we'll be able to say goodbye to Tracey. 

Thank you to all those who left such lovely comments here and on my email - I really appreciate your support and kind thoughts.  That's all for now - take care, hugs your family - tell them that you love them - you never know what's around the corner.

I'm not surprised you're tired - was thinking of you today, wondering how things were going. Grief takes it's own avenues......we can never predict ........
Much love

Sorry to hear your sad news. Thanks for still taking the time to comment on my blog. Crafting is such a useful distraction at times like this I find. Do rest and get your strenght back. Hugs C x

I am a WMS fan and enjoy your blog. How nice to have your Mum and daughter with you during this difficult time. I am sure though you miss your husband dreadfully right about now. Once you can wrap your head around what happened I am sure you will get back to stamping and will find it therapeutic. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this period.

Oh Deborah, I am feeling for you and your family, and how very true to appreciate our loved ones as we never know what tomorrow will bring. It may take you a while to get back in the swing of things, but grief dies need it's own space. So glad that you have your mum there to comfort each other, I can't imagine how she must feel. Take care, Pauline xx

I am glad you are taking comfort in the presence of your family. I am so glad that you can be with your mum and daugther.

It's really hard to make sense of the death of a loved one - especially when it was so sudden - and it's really important to spend time talking it over with the rest of your family. My heart goes out to you Deborah. Vicky x

Deborah I'm glad your mum is with you. It's so hard to loose someone so dear.... Keep talking about your sister and your feelings (and I think crying too). I can imagine that you are tired. This is so hard and take all the time you need to mourn.
Take care; I'll be thinking of you. XXX

Hi, Deb! I'm so sorry for your loss. I don't know you, yet, but I popped in as a result of a lovely comment you left on my blog... I guess that's what makes blogging soooooo amazing. Even though I don't really know you, my heart aches for your loss and I am sending you thoughts of comfort and prayer. May your sadness ease quickly and leave only the BEST of thoughts about your loved one...

xoxo!

Deborah, I am so sorry that I didn't read your blog for a while and so missed the news. My deepest sympathies to you and your family. I will be thinking of you and yours now, and I hope that you and yours will stay well and keep smiling through this tragedy. I know that it will not ease with time but that you will learn to incorporate it into your life, and then remember all that is good and fine about your relationship - I hope this happens sooner rather than later. Keep crafting - it is often by immersing ourselves into this hobby of ours that we replenish our souls ready for the tough time real life dishes out, and thus we gain some resilience. Bring on the sunshine.
