Tomorrow it will be 7 years since Pa passed and Button came into our lives.
So much has happened since then. We now have Boy too. Hubby and I have been together for 10 years and married for 5. Both Button and Boy are succeeding against all the odds. They are doing well at school and with their dancing. They are kind and joyful and healthy. We have wonderful family and friends. We have our own business. We will soon (hopefully) move to a beautiful new house. I have a degree and am retraining for a new career.
We have so very much to be grateful for and proud of.
And I know Pa would be very proud of us too.
Today I’ve bunked off all the things I should be doing to escape, quite literally, to the hills. Pa always called Lancashire ‘God’s Country’. He had a point. I need to take a breath, reflect, regroup, make lists.
Tomorrow Ma and I will have lunch and remember.
And it turns out that I was right 7 years ago. I still miss you, Pa. We all do.
