I thought I’d better post something before WordPress deletes my blog due to inactivity, and to let my friends know that I am alive and well.
Sometimes we only see how life balances out when we look back on it. It’s been six months since I lost my brother and – within a fortnight of his death – six months since I got my daughter back. And so my grief was tempered by having this whirlwind of joy move permanently into my everyday life and turn my silent apartment into a home.
She’s a force of nature, this beautiful child of mine; funny, smart and with a will of steel. It’s a daily blessing to see her happy, healthy and simply soaring in her new school.
My gratitude knows no bounds, truly.
And now that I have a life again, I am cooking and baking again and – hopefully – will be back to blogging regularly again.
