Some tough times and some hard times

The past 12 months or so have been a difficult time for our family, our mother died just over a year ago and our father died in June this year. After Dad died my sister Jenny said "we're orphans now, Pip" and while I usually associate the word orphan with children the general definition is for someone who has lost both parents so Jenny was quite correct in what she said.

The best way I've found to express how I've been feeling is that in the beginning, most days were like cloudy, overcast days with no end in sight, but then eventually the cloudy days have turned into days with sunny periods and now most days are sunny although once in a while a very cloudy day will pop up.
