Mid Week....Heat and More Heat

 This year has been warmer than any others and I am finding as I age it is harder to acclimatize myself.

Today I headed out after lunch to pick more raspberries, and after an hour and a half I had enough of the sun and heat. I did manage to get another 4 liter pail full so I am happy about that. 

Tomorrow we will be heading out to the small town (village actually) that Harvey lived in growing up. It is also the place all our children were baptized and our only daughter is buried. 

It is the anniversary of her death and we always make the trip to visit her, clean up the site and change flowers around. We also make a trip out to visit her on her birthday. 

While her loss still leaves an emptiness in our lives and we always will wonder what could have been, the pain is duller for most days, except at this time of year, her birthday, and surprisingly the first day of school for me.

Picture is blurry but this is the last school picture.

Rest in peace angel.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.


  1. I cannot imagine the pain of losing a child, especially one so young. Your annual trip to tend her grave is a sweet honor to her memory. Safe travels.

  2. Take care of yourself. That's a very special journey to make.

  3. I'm so sorry, I did not know you lost a daughter. I understand your difficulty with the first day of school. Hugs.

  4. (((((Jackie))))) A virtual hug for you my friend. My heart goes out to you.

  5. The loss of a child breaks your heart in ways that nothing else does. I love how you are honouring her memory.

  6. Thinking of you today, dear Jackie.

  7. Sending a prayer and hug to you.

  8. Much love to you and your family. My thoughts are with you...
