Devastated...

Just a note to say I won't be around much...we tragically lost my dad yesterday after he had an accident at work and suffered a major head injury. We are all totally devastated and I feel completely lost.
Trying to do some crafting as I feel I need to occupy myself with something and to a certain extent have a bit of normality...may seem mad but I can't just sit around doing nothing.

Emma, I'm so sorry to hear your news. I can honestly say that I know just how you feel, as I lost my dad over a weekend some years ago after he fell and broke his leg. Loosing a parent is never easy, and loosing someone suddenly jumbles you up for a time with a whole host of emotions.

Hang in there, it will get better, but the hurt will come back often, it is normal, and people will understand. Love to you and your family.

Sharon said...

I'm so sorry to hear your sad news Emma. Words don't really mean a lot at a time like this but hopefully knowing that your crafting friends are thinking of you will be of some comfort.

Belinda said...

Emma
I am so sorry for your loss, what a terrible shock! I am thinking of you and all of your family at this very difficult time.
Your needing to craft at this time is not at all strange, it is just an attempt to lose yourself and for a short time maybe change your focus from the reality of this terribly difficult situation. Grief is such an individual thing and if you can seek some solace in creating then you should craft as much as you want.
Hugs
