The last few days have been strange with their twist of life, happiness, love, contentment, sadness and death. Work has been unusually difficult for me to get my mind through. Although, I always say it’s unusual. But I manage to find a way through it. But my brain is muddling through it all. I got to spend some quality time with my baby last night. And I was rocked to sleep… and awoken in the morning. Sometimes you get more than you asked for and it’s a wonderful thing! I’m so glad that I had an opportunity to spend time with him. It broke the routine that we’ve been stuck in. And then there was the end of life. Max’s cousin was the first I’ve heard of.
The 2nd one has struck closer to home. My Parrain Herve died today. Parrain is french for Godfather. And although I didn’t know him as well as I know my marraine (Nininne) but I had fond memories of the days when I was just a little girl and he would come by. I knew him coming by meant a new tea set. He would buy these little tea sets for me that had a million pieces… but was always just enough for me and all my imaginary friends. The anticipation of his visit may have been based on the tea sets but I remember thinking that I wish he would visit as often as Nininne who usually never brought me anything… her company was the gift. Max reminds me a LOT of her. My brother confirmed it the other day. I thought I was the only one. It will be interesting to see them meet. So the mix of all these emotions has just left me kind of … emotionless. And with that… I guess I’ll go vegetate till I sleep.
