What the caterpillar calls the end of the world, the master calls a butterfly.

Yesterday my Father-in-Law died. 

He had only just turned sixty, and yes – it was unexpected. 

My heart aches for my Mother-in-Law, who was looking forward to celebrating thirty-five years of marriage in December and who is absolutely devastated, naturally; for The Blokey and his younger brother, who certainly never expected to have to watch their daddy die at least twenty years before his time; and for my future children who will never get to meet a man who would have made a perfect grandfather. 

[i’ve written about what happened in a protected post (below) partly so that i don’t forget and partly because i know some of you may want to know a little bit more.  if you’re not on my list and you want to be then just ask]

please God bless all of us as we come to terms with his sudden loss xxx Elsabeth


  1. I’m so very sorry for your loss. Sending hugs and good thoughts your way. I know this must be a difficult time for you.
