L is for Loss

When I heard that you were gone
I sat here and thought of you.


I’m participating in the A to Z Challenge for the month of April. The idea is to post every day, except Sundays, and end up with one post for each letter of the alphabet. It’s a good challenge to help me to blog every day.

    1. Thanks, Lynn. I always liked the pic too. I took it last summer when my gramma died. I’ve been thinking about her a lot lately and came across this photo again the other day, so I decided to post this.

        1. Thanks, it’s OK though. It was expected, and I was able to say goodbye before she died. She had a long battle with dementia/Alzheimer’s and overall declining health. The things that happen to us when we reach our 90s huh? But you still miss people sometimes. Thanks for your thoughts.

  1. I lost my father recently at 87 years of age and will always remember him in all of his favorite places – walking the hills in his neighborhood in San Francisco, where he befriended many of the neighbors and his favorite city, Venice, where he had as much or more energy and enthusiasm as the rest of the family each and every day.

  2. L is for loss…my word, this has been quite a week, and just the title really hit home with me. On Wednesday 13th, was the anniversary of my dad’s death, He has been gone 19 years, and I still miss him as if it were yesterday. Lovely pic, Cynthia. x

    1. Thank you Lynne. I’m sorry for your loss of your dad. It must have been an emotional week for you. Anniversaries are a kind of reminder, but we still miss those people every day and for so many reasons. Wishing you peace and sending hugs xo

  3. Two short lines that say so much. We all know we must face this kind of loss at times in our lives, but knowing that doesn’t make it any easier when those times hit. Beautifully expressed, Cynthia.

I'd love to hear your thoughts
