Sad tears...happy tears
But today I cried tears of joy. My daughter has booked flights and is coming out to see me next Sunday.
She hasn't been to visit me here for 11 years. She has a dreadful fear of flying, particularly on her own.
She has had a difficult year so far and is really in need of time away from all the stress she has, to relax and re-charge her batteries. We talked about her coming a few weeks ago. I wanted to be able to spoil her and give her chance to sleep, something she has been deprived of for quite some time. But I didn't imagine for one minute that she would actually be able to pluck up the courage to do it.
My grandsons will be looked after by their father for a week, which will do them all good! Sometimes men don't really appreciate what mothers cope with.
I can't wait to see her. We both need each other at the moment. There will no doubt be more tears of joy and lots of hugs!
