24 hours

We have been taught about the fragility of life and how life can change instantaneously. Without warning. And I suppose we feel mis-trusting of life.

Chris went to Amsterdam yesterday for work. It was our first night apart since we lost Eddie and it was tough, even though it was for only 24 hrs. I had the support of a good friend and family who stayed with me but I missed Chris in a different way to how I used to miss him.

Back then, it was taken for granted that he would be home safely. But yesterday was different and we both felt it. We said goodbye like it was the final goodbye.

    I am so sorry to hear about your loss. We lost my half-brother Daniel at 9 days old many years ago now, a virus picked up in hospital. I wish you all the best for the future and hope that you, as my dad and his wife did, get to a happier place.
