Three years on...

Gratitude abundant
where gratitude is due:
Three years and fifteen letters of gratitude.
Fifteen letters of thanks and gratitude
to family and friends;
thanks  aplenty for
their love and support,
their strength and gentle encouragement,
their understanding and inspiration,
their faith and grace.
Fifteen individuals who
love and accept my family just
as we are,
lifting us high,
gathered in their arms,
supporting us when
we could not support ourselves,
lending us their hearts when
ours were broken.
Fifteen people who have
brought us to where we are
into our lives,
changing our "normal"
and embarking us on the
life unexpected.

One year on and Eilidh became our guiding star.
Two years is no time at all in the lifetime of grief.
Three years and time for reflection and deep gratitude:
thank you to those who deserve my thanks.
