thirty one

Today I was relieved to hear my dad had had a successful prostrate op. Third time lucky. And a good night in ICU. I am so grateful to him for looking after his health and fitness all these years. I wish I could be there. I wish I could hug him. But spending a quiet moment, having a flat white with him, on a bench on his favourite river, was the best I could do. So I am grateful for the memory of him here, because it felt like he was right there with me.

  1. Those quiet moments with loved ones are very special (even when they aren’t physically with you) … Thinking of you and your family xx

    • Thank you Lisa. It is tough being so far away from those who matter, especially during times of need. But I do take comfort in the knowledge that they know how I feel. So … day by day, moment by moment xxx
