A Little Rain Must Fall
This last week has been full of sadness. I have been touched by the amount of people going through illness, pain and bereavement in blogland. I soak up other peoples painful emotions like a sponge and feel deeply for them.
Tomorrow I am attending a funeral. I know that there will be relatives there feeling a great sense of loss. It is going to be hard to stay strong and not cry. I will have to bite my lip or press my fingernails into my hand.
Despite the tidal wave of grief this past week, I know that life goes on and there is much to look forward to. The vineyard has even more significance to me. It is a place to be with nature and experience the friendship of like-minded people. As well as the vineyard, I am going to be involved in setting up a community orchard and maybe get to have my second go at driving the tractor!
I hope that this week treats you with kindness, and if that is not to be then remember that the difficult time will pass and the blue skies will return. x
