Oh no, not again

I am writing this post with so much sadness. For the people that have been following me since I started blogging and know me personally they will understand so much of my pain.
On Friday morning I got a phone call with the most horrible news. It was my brother who had been in Melbourne for the night. I had only spoken to him the night before.
His news was that there had been a fatal car crash in his home town and that it was his 24year old son.😭😭😪😪  My brother and his wife had the most traumatic train trip home that morning. I immediately got in the car and travelled the 2 1/2 hours to be with him.
As tragic as this is it was only just over 2 years that this happened to me with my son. To have to relive this week is so unbelievable and painful. I still cry everyday for my son but now I know he will be showing and helping his cousin the way. I know what my brother and his wife are going through. They are apologetic to me for having to go through it again. This week is so hard.
My mum is not well enough to travel and this is the third grand child she has now lost. Yes, my 2 brothers and I have now all lost a son.
Understandably I am not sewing, posting or commenting on blogs. I have read the odd few. I am not sure what will happen this week or where I will be but I know I do have everyone's support.

I am so sorry to make such a sad post but I need to express myself somewhere. Thanks everyone for the calls and texts so far.

Hope to be back onboard soon.

My prayers and thought will be with you over the coming weeks. I feel for your dear mother - life is just so damned cruel at times. xoxox

  26. I am so sad for you and your husband and your brother and sister-in-law. As a mother who lost a son in a car accident I can empathsize with you all. Yes, all these things bring your own hurt and loss to the surface and they certainly are hard to deal with. I am thinking of you all. God bless.
