It's been two weeks since I had to say goodbye to my husband. We have done so much and there is still a lot we have to do. We all miss Jan dreadfully. At times our hearts literally ache with sadness and longing, but there are times as well when photo's and memories of happy times put a smile on our faces.
I visited the garden today, after more than a month...It felt good being there. It's a place we both loved. The sunlight, the birdsong and flowers filled me with joy. A kind neighbour made a heart shaped display of hazelnuts on the table. So very thoughtful.
I cut the grass, planted some bulbs, turned of the water and emptied the terracotta pots. I picked the prettiest flowers and berries I could find, to put on my husbands grave. Hope he will be able to see them, from wherever he is.
The girls and I would like to thank you for your beautiful words, prayers, cards and flowers. They warmed our hearts! I wish I could thank you all in person, but at the moment my life is still so hectic, I simply cannot find the time.
To me, there are two things in life that matter most: health and love. Love is what you gave us in abundance. Thank you so very very much! A big kiss and hug to you all.
