Time to be Thoughtful

I hope you will forgive us for not being around much this week (Monday’s post was pre-scheduled) as our paternal grandfather passed away on Sunday and we’ve been taking time to deal with it and spend time with family. It’s been a difficult few days, but it has been quite lovely to get to spend time with the family, especially some family who we don’t get a chance to see quite as much. I’ve been looking at some old photos, which I find such enjoyment in anyway, and it’s lovely to remember my grandad with children all around him and a smile on his face. Both he and my nan love their grandchildren (and great grandchildren now) so dearly that it’s nice to know that we are bringing just a little bit of comfort to her at such a difficult time. I have been back in work since Wednesday, but as I don’t like my job this has brought me little comfort in getting back to normal – my normal is spending time with my dad, my mum and my sisters, when we help each other get through these things. The last thing I wanted this week was to come back to work and to have to see near strangers. I hope to visit my nan again this weekend, maybe do something nice for her as Mother’s Day is on Sunday. I’ll be back to posting this weekend too, that is another normal that I want to get back to.

Kelly Clarkson lyrics have been drifting in and out of my head today, which seemed appropriate, so I thought I’d share them with you.

The Sun Will Rise by Kelly Clarkson

I can see the weight there in your eyes
I can feel the thorn in your side
Your knuckles are bruised from a losing fight
One way down a dead end street
Broken glass underneath your feet
You think the day won’t break the sunless night

The sun will rise
The sun will rise
When you’ve lost your lights
The sun will rise
It’ll be alright
It’ll be alright

I’ve been in stuck in a storm before
Felt the wind raging at my door
Couldn’t move, couldn’t breathe, couldn’t find a way out
Somehow my clouds disappeared
Somehow I made it here
Maybe just so you could hear me say

The sun will rise
The sun will rise (the sun will rise)
When you’ve lost your lights
The sun will rise
It’ll be alright (it’ll be alright)
It’ll be alright
It’ll be alright
It’ll be alright

And though you can’t see it’s
So hard to believe it
Sometimes you just need a little faith (all you need is a little faith)
There’s an answer to your prayer
And I swear that there’ll come a day

The sun will rise
