I don’t often post two downloads in the same week, but this one is special. An old classmate of mine recently lost his father, in a heart wrenching way. Doctors had misdiagnosed him for years, and it wasn’t until after he passed out at work and landed in the hospital did the news come: cancer. And not just cancer, oh no. It had progressed so much, that they only gave him a week to live. It’s everybody’s nightmare. How do you cope with that? How do you move on? My friend’s mother is such an amazing woman. A week after her husband’s passing, I attended my high school homecoming with Charlie. My friend’s mother held her for an hour, while baby C just slept in her arms. It was so sweet. I know it doesn’t take away the pain, but I did hope that it might ease it a little. I cannot even imagine the heartbreak of so suddenly losing a husband while still so young. At least they got to have that week to say goodbye, small consolation that it is.
So my friend’s lovely wife, Addie (also a friend and old classmate) contacted me to do a printable for a quote from Winnie the Pooh to give to her mother-in-law. It’s such a beautiful sentiment.
