A bit of sunshine after the rain ๐Ÿ˜Š

Hi everyone , as many of you know I lost my much loved husband , Geoff, on April .9th. Since then my family and I have tried hard to celebrate his life more than mourn his death , of course we are only human and so there have been tears and times of sadness but weโ€™ve held each other up and overall been able to carry on remembering him every day and smiling as he wouldโ€™ve wanted . At 1.44 this morning , 6th May , on the day of the coronation of King Charles 111. Our own little prince , Jude Geoffrey , came into the world , our third great grandchild ๐Ÿ˜Š I hope his first photographs cheer you up , he was crowned by the midwives and presented with his royal gifts Geoff served in the grenadier guards and loved pomp and ceremony he would be thrilled to have this latest addition to the family come into the world on this historic day . I hope that somewhere in some way heโ€™s sharing in our joy ๐Ÿ˜Š

Iโ€™ve been crying tears of joy all morning Alberta . I canโ€™t tell you how proud Geoff wouldโ€™ve been to have this happen today especially as Jude Geoffrey wasnโ€™t due until the 18th . It feels , as I said when Geoff passed , that some higher power is walking beside us every day , lifting us when we stumble ๐Ÿ˜Š xx

Welcome Jude Geoffrey, lovely boy. My late husband was Geoffrey, donโ€™t think itโ€™s very common now. Hope you can enjoy new grandchild, and he helps you at this difficult time. I donโ€™t have any grandchildren or siblings. Very best wishes, Jean x

Thank you Jean , no itโ€™s not a common name now but when it was suggested by my granddaughters partner soon after Geoff died we all thought it had a certain ring to its even though none of us particularly liked the name Geoffrey ๐Ÿ˜‚To everyone else heโ€™ll no doubt be known as Jude but to me heโ€™ll always be Jude Geoffrey ๐Ÿฅฐ. I hope you have good friends to take the place of the family you donโ€™t have ๐Ÿ™ xx

I feel sure your Geoffrey must be looking on with huge pride and sending you all his love.Little Jude Geoffrey looks wonderful in his crown! And I see he has a packet of wildflower seeds to grow. These would make a lovely memorial for your Geoffrey as well as for the coronation.

They say, 'He moves in mysterious ways,' and this does indeed feel like yet another example of a higher power stepping in.

Blessings to you and your family, especially your new little prince!

yes the wildflowers will no doubt be planted in my garden and hopefully return every year to remind us of a very special , if bitter sweet , time Iโ€™ve been trying to think of ways to commemorate Geoff and I think those seeds might be the start of a lovey peaceful corner where the family can sit and enjoy the memories ๐Ÿ˜Š xx

Oh that's so beautiful. And they say for everyone that leaves us. A new life has begun. Hope your keeping positive. Grief comes and goes like waves and even now 33 years after my Mom passed away a certain song she loved always makes me emotional. Hope you have Sunshine and enjoy your day. Take care. Brian

Congratulations to all! ๐ŸŽ‰ Beautiful boy. Jude is a great name and very fitting that Geoffrey is his middle name.."Hey Jude, don't make it bad, take a sad song and make it better". It really couldn't be better. Lovely โค๏ธ xx

Jude Geoffrey is a gorgeous wee soul, and I love his hat! Congratulations to all his loving family. I'm sure there will have been a lot of mixed emotions around his arrival, as the loss of his great-grandpa is still so raw, but I really admire your strength and know that this will bring you much joy. (by the way, I really like both of his names ๐Ÿ˜‰) xxx

wonderful and congratulations on your young monarch . The woman priest at my mothers funeral spoke of the circle of life and (whilst she didnโ€™t know my mum and was rather irritating) I thought that a good concept to keep in mind to help with the pain of grief and still look forward .

Big hugs to you x and best wishes for the newest member of your family
