Thank you for the love.

Now may well be the time to say thank you. Firstly a thank you to God because even though I am currently cross with Him, He is still there..... and always will be I think.
I cannot  now remember who I've thanked by letter, text or email...... and I know there must be those I've left out....so this is a blanket thank you to everyone who has sent messages, cards, flowers, plants etc.
So many people are holding us in their  prayers and I am so grateful to everyone....Prayers help I believe that totally and its amazing that so many people have taken the trouble to let me know that they are sharing our pain.
My house now looks like a mini Christmas is happening....there are cards all over the house and they are all beautiful....
Even more amazing are the flowers......they are also everywhere and so is the scent.....
I am trying to get my vicar hat on this morning.....there's more to do than I remember from when David died....    The main thing  given in each of the cards and the flowers  is love....love given  freely and generously and I am very grateful....This small poem says everything I think.

Hours fly,
Flowers die
New days,
New ways,
Pass by.
Love stays.

Time is
Too Slow for those who Wait,
Too Swift for those who Fear,
Too Long for those who Grieve,
Too Short for those who Rejoice;
But for those who Love,
Time is not.
