Such a bittersweet day, DD2 is a wonderful girl, adored by DH, yet all our celebrations hurt because he is not here. Just sent messages in bottles to him. 2 and 1/2 years and it feels like yesterday. So difficult for her( and DD1 and DS) to go through life without their darling dad. I feel so angry and bitter today. Life is so cruel, we had amazing children and he loved them so much but he was cruelly robbed of the chance of seeing them become the fabulous adults they are.
So called family friend said to DD1 today "You are pretty, it is so sad your arms are so scarred". Yes, because she had chemotherapy you cow, I wanted to say but I knew DH would have been ashamed if I did.
