First of all - thank you for all of your sweet and encouraging comments to my last post. I feel so lucky to have met such a wonderful bunch of girls through book blogging!
It has been the hardest and saddest week in my life. We said the final goodbye to my dad yesterday, and it was a beautiful ceremony. I'd like to think my dad would have liked it.
This week I have thought a lot about death, about dying quite young (my father was only 55) and have discovered things about myself. I can be strong and give support to people around me, it was a good discovery. Jan has been enormous source of help, of course, and I am thankful. There are things that will be difficult from here on, but it's important to take it a day at a time.
We will be returning to Helsinki today and I hope I will get back the desire to read soon. So far I haven't really been able to focus more than a few pages at a time.
