mixed feelings

Another big anniversary for our Queen today.  65 years since she became Queen.

It is a momentous day, no other English monarch has reached 65 years on the throne.

I can’t help but think that the day must be tinged with sadness though.  It is the 65th anniversary of the day her dad died too.

Must be difficult being reminded of the day in such a big way every year.

I lost my father 5 years ago and the yearly anniversary of that is very difficult for me, but to be reminded by the press and have a big thing made of the day must be much worse.

The news this morning showed her arriving at Sandringham, saying that she would spend the next few days there.  Then the journalist promptly pointed out that her father had died at Sandringham 65 years ago!!!!

How thoughtful of him!!!!
