Hard Road...

We have had a bit of a rough time lately... Our boy Josh {my step-son} said goodbye for the last time 2 weeks ago, as she lost her 10yr battle with cancer.

Josh is coping very well... too well to be honest... we have him seeing a counsellor through school who is very good, and used to specialise in grief counselling.

It's hard enough to lose your Parent as an adult, I can vouch for that, but I couldn't possibly imagine what it must be like for a 13yr old. My heart just breaks for him over and over again.

We were all booked to go on our honeymoon 3 days after she passed, but unfortunately our travel insurance wouldn't cover us in changing our trip, and we couldn't afford the $2,000 it was going to cost to change it ourselves, so at everyone elses insistance {incl, Josh} we headed off as planned and missed the funeral.

We have been told by our families and friends, that Josh was amazing at the funeral, and that he got up and spoke beautifully of his mum.  I am so proud of him.
