Broos not Broeis

On Monday I was feeling very fragile after dropping Matthew off. I had spent the entire long weekend with him. He had given me a framed photo of himself for my birthday to keep me company at times like Monday. For Father's Day I got a mosaic notebook holder that he had made for me (both are shown above).

Yesterday I had stated in on Facebook that I was feeling fragile but in Afrikaans as not to put my heart too openly on my sleeve. Just to get it straight I used the word "broos" not "broeis" which means broody instead of fragile. Anyway today I am feeling a bit stronger with two days under the bridge. Just as Albert Camus once said "In the depth of winter, I finally learnt that within me lay an invincible summer." Kind of ironic that today being the shortest day of the year and it with that it can only get better.
