176 days…..4234 hours

In the words of William Shakespeare…

“Time is very slow for those who wait;
very fast for those who are scared;
very long for those who lament;
very short for those who celebrate;                                                                                            but for those who love, time is eternal.”

It is Friday again.  I hate Fridays.  A mere 176 days ago my precious child died.  It seems as if it has been a lifetime.  It makes more sense when I say Vic died 4234 hours ago…

Yet, it seems as if it was yesterday.  292718_395925797163521_948785461_n

I am a sixty plenty wife, mother, sister, grandmother and friend. I started blogging as a coping mechanism during my beautiful daughter's final journey. Vic was desperately ill for 10 years after a botched back operation. Vic's Journey ended on 18 January 2013 at 10:35. She was the most courageous person in the world and has inspired thousands of people all over the world. Vic's two boys are monuments of her existence. She was an amazing mother, daughter, sister and friend. I will miss you today, tomorrow and forever my Angle Child. https://tersiaburger.wordpress.com

  1. Maybe there isn’t any time. In what we think of as ‘the past’ you were with her; in what we think of as ‘the future’ you are with her too. But there is what seems an endless separation in between…


  2. I do really understand your pain. Believe me my friend, it will get better, I promise. Never a day will go by that you don’t think of her, but in time you will think with more smiles than tears


  3. This reminds me of the following verse: You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book.
    Psalm 56:8
