Now I’ve started this post I can’t find the words…
I’ve done nothing but cry and feel miserable for over a week. Guy at work returned to do a desk job after his cancer op. First day I say him all the memories just came back smacking me in the face and I was back rushing to the loo sobbing. Now each time he passes my desk I fall apart.
The other thing that didn’t help was All Souls Day. Got myself into a right state reading about it so much so I ended up calling the priest last Friday crying down the phone. Poor man didn’t even know me (my priest was away). He has been really helpful and even called again yesterday to make sure I was ok. He’s also arranged for someone to give me a lift to Church on Sunday as it’s just over a half an hours walk and don’t drive - buses on a Sunday don’t start until 11.45!
I find myself praying a lot, yet a year ago I found it difficult to pray.
