Day 51 of gratitude ๐Ÿ’•

Normalization. Our everyday life is back to normal. Maybe even better than normal since we have these new house rules that helps me to get the kids off their iPads and cartoons ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Sunday song โค๏ธ

Feeling rather moody today and thinking vacation time should be over soon!

I feel I am being tested when it comes to patience this year, on so many levels!

But its only two weeks left, so Iย will hang in there.

Tomorrow Iย start my new blog week, looking forward to try it out, and hopefully you readers will enjoy it too! Fingers crossed!

This song suits my mood today, and brings back great memories too.

“Bring Me To Life”
(feat. Paul McCoy)

How can you see into my eyes like open doors?
Leading you down into my core where I’ve become so numb
Without a soul my spirit’s sleeping somewhere cold
Until you find it there and lead it back home(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I can’t wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
Call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
Bid my blood to run
(I can’t wake up)
Before I come undone
(Save me)
Save me from the nothing I’ve becomeNow that I know what I’m without
You can’t just leave me
Breathe into me and make me real
Bring me to life

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I can’t wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
Call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
Bid my blood to run
(I can’t wake up)
Before I come undone
(Save me)
Save me from the nothing I’ve become

Bring me to life
(I’ve been living a lie, there’s nothing inside)
Bring me to life

Frozen inside without your touch
Without your love, darling
Only you are the life among the dead

All this time I can’t believe I couldn’t see
Kept in the dark but you were there in front of me
I’ve been sleeping a thousand years it seems
Got to open my eyes to everything
Without a thought, without a voice, without a soul
Don’t let me die here
There must be something more
Bring me to life

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I can’t wake up)
Wake me up inside
(Save me)
Call my name and save me from the dark
(Wake me up)
Bid my blood to run
(I can’t wake up)
Before I come undone
(Save me)
Save me from the nothing I’ve become

Bring me to life
(I’ve been living a lie, there’s nothing inside)
Bring me to life

Loss

Today I lost another family member.

My uncle found his finale rest at 7 am today.

He got the diagnose ALS 3 months ago.

Last summer he was out fishing, driving and enjoying life.

Yesterday he couldn’t move out of his chair.

Today he found rest.

He has lived a troubled life.

Filled with alcohol and abuse.

But also great love.

He is also leaving 5 wonderful children behind.

Children made out of love.

My cousins.

We spent a lot of time together when I grew up.

My uncle was ย friends with my father.

He helped build the house we are currently living in.

And he was always close with my mum.

He was the fun and goofy uncle, the one that always played with us when he came around.

I saw him in December last year.

At my grandfathers birthday.

I hugged him.

I didn’t knew it would be the last time then.

Now he is playing around with the angels, free of pain and sorrow.

He is at a better place.

And we will miss him, but also honorย his memory.

I will be strong for my grandparents.

I can not believe how hard it must be to loose a son at the age of 77 and 80.

Its almost unbelievable.

But my uncle has been in touch with death before, through his alcohol abuse.

Now he is at peace.

Now he can laugh and smile and feel free again.

Until we meet again โค
