should really have posted this on Sunday, which was Mother’s Day in the UK, still . . .
the pain of that loss has lessened over the years since she died – I no longer cry every day – but it has not entirely disappeared (and it never will !)
there are times, since she died, that I wish I wasn’t an atheist – because I’d sorely love to believe that our parting is just temporary !
this vid, capturing a tender moment when 92 yr old ‘toy boy’ Howard sings a love song to the woman he has been married to for 73 years, his dying 93 yr old wife, Laura, has gone viral in last few days – so many of you will already have seen it and know the back story
for those who haven’t, click to watch the video on Youtube and read the accompanying information about Howard and Laura
it’s O.K. now but if I’m not careful and twist or over-stretch it, the consequent pain and incapacitation can lay me low for a few days – this is my excuse for avoiding housework and gardening 😆
to cut a long story short, the garden was getting to be a bit of a mess so I, reluctantly, got the mower and strimmer out, Friday – with the result that my back has been killing me since!
been 5 years since cancer took my wife
the pain of that loss is no less now than it was when she died, though I am reminded of it less frequently now than once was the case – until I stumble upon fucken shit like this and am reduced to tears having been reminded of how much is missing from my life
meeting your partner’s parents for the first time can be a stressful event for anyone – even more so when you have something else to tell them !
this ad showing a couple of girls preparing to ‘come out’ and declare their love for one another to one of the girl’s parents has gone viral in India
in a sign of changing times and changing attitudes, the reaction to the video has been overwhelmingly positive
