As a parent, I make it my mission to protect my kids from harm’s way, and as much as I try to shield them from hurt and from sorrow, sadly there are some things in life which I simply cannot alter nor protect any of us from.
Though the kids have experienced the loss of a beloved pet a few years back, I was hoping and expected that losing a loved one would be an issue we would avoid until they are far older. Sadly that is not the case as last week my beloved Father lost his battle to brain cancer and as a result, J and E have lost their Grandad and though they are putting on very brave faces, I know just how much they’ll miss him.
Though it was short, I am so grateful for the time that my children were given with their Grandad and I hope that those memories last them a lifetime.
Thank you for reading and as always, I look forward to catching up with your #LivingArrows either through your own posts or comments upon this post.
