A thought-provoking delivery in the post this morning – a card from James’s cousin addressed to all four of us. Obviously, James has not told his family about our changed circumstances and it will be a surprise to them when they receive my card and only see three names on it. I wonder if I should have sent it?
It made me feel sad reading that card. It included a photograph of their new baby and I didn’t know that Lorna was expecting. It hit home that I’m not part of that family anymore and equally, James is not part of mine.
