Fragile life part one

~ “Life is one of those precious fleeting gifts, and everything can change in a heartbeat.”~

Larking around in the leaves

Some weeks in our lives are harder than others, this week was one of those for me. This week my friend who often showed me new places in Brittany, or nearby Normandy died very suddenly. I have been looking at pictures of some of the wonderful places, buildings, flowers, that we enjoyed together.

The French for heartbeat is battement de coeur.

The French for tears is larmes.

Sorry to hear that. We always want life to be fair. But it isn't.

I send sincere condolences for your loss. Losing a friend with whom you have shared beautiful and meaningful moments, regardless of the circumstances involved in the loss, is the hardest thing in life. Be it animal, or human, I don't think we ever get over it completely.
I send you thoughts of peace.
Kind regards, Kitty
