Sunlight is painting. Nathaniel Hawthorne



Sometimes just the light that something is viewed in transforms it completely.

When my father died, there was never going to be a way to change his loss nor mine, but I could focus on the other aspects of his life, the great things we shared and how lucky we were to get the time we had together.

May your days always have a surprising glow.

  7. I'm sorry to read of your loss and agree with being blessed to have experienced time with our loved ones. I too have been looking at light recently perhaps because we lack it going into Winter #MyPhotoFriday

  9. There's nothing quite like losing a parent, and it's strange to suddenly realize that YOU are the older generation in the family!

  10. I agree with NC Sue, it's weird being the family matriarch!

  11. I lost my dad to lung cancer and he was only 57. I was a daddy's girl so it hit me pretty hard, but I learned to cope similar to you. I too celebrate the great things we shared and how lucky we were to get the time we did have together.

  12. A very wise post. If people could get their minds off the negative, the world would be a lot happier.

  13. I still have both of my parents, Lydia, and fortunately I am old enough (and dare I say it?) wise enough, to realise that I am able to give them everything that they need and want, before it's too late. Mum gets flowers now, when she can still enjoy their perfume in her room, Dad gets his visits now when we can chat and laugh. Why leave the flowers for the cemetery and the visits for the grave?
    Thank you for taking part in the "My Sunday Best" meme!
