Now, that I do have time to write, I find it difficult to settle into a routine. It is for me a rather strange feeling to have any amount of time for writing!


I wrote the following just five months ago:

This morning, at the breakfast table, Peter and I were reminiscing about that day when we saw Angie and Roy in Sydney. I found out now, that this was more than eight years ago when we met them in Sydney on that beautiful sunny Sunday!

Angie and Roy just sent the following message:

“Greetings Uta and Peter,
From Florida we wish you some peacefulness in the midst of the chaos we are living.
We have adjusted to living with the restrictions around us and can only hope that 2021 will be brighter. All the best specially to Peter. 
Sending light and hugs to you and all your family.”

I wrote back to them the sad news about Peter’s passing. And then they answered:

“Thank you Uta… We are saddened about Peter’s passing and wish you strength in this difficult times.  It is your good fortune that you have your family near by.  We can all celebrate his life this season and maybe we all meet again.  A comforting thought anyway.  Fond memories will prevail about our meeting in Sydney and Berlin.  All the best and thank you for sharing the links.”

I wrote back to them now:

“Thank you, Angie and Roy! Yes, fond memories. And I do have a large family. This is a blessing, especially now that I am so alone. Peter did not want to leave me. He was always there for me. Our children were always close to both of us. Of course, they want to take care of me now. But they have their own lives too. So, for the time that is left to me now, I may have to cope on my own, as much as possible anyway. I just hope for good health a bit longer, even though the slowing down is already considerable. (You may have noticed I walk with a rollator.) Even though, it would be nice, if all of us could do some more travelling soon! Wishing you all the best for 2021!Love, Uta” 

So, this is my writing for this morning!

    Keep writing, Uta…it is good therapy…and your words help others AND they will be a wonderful legacy/treasure for you family to have for generations.
    You are in my thoughts, prayers, and heart. I know the days ahead will be a challenge and you will miss Peter greatly each and every day. I hope you can find comfort in your love of/with him and in your memories. 🙂
    My mom said after my dad died she still talked to him (out loud 🙂 ) every day and it gave her comfort. 🙂
    (((HUGS))) ❤

    1. I think I know what you mean, dear Carolyn, it often feels like he is still there, especially when I do something that we used to do together. Hugs and best wishes for a peaceful Christmas and all the best for the New Year! 🙂
