Word Of The Week

Saudade: Saudade is a Brazilian Portuguese word.
There is no direct translation in English but it is a descriptive emotive word used when you long for someone who has passed, something that is lost, a time gone past, memories, an emptiness. It’s the mixture of sad & happy feelings; sad at the loss but happy for the memories that cause the sadness.

In the early hours of Wednesday morning my Grandmother passed away and I will miss her so dearly, I can not describe to you how much in a post.

My Grandparents have been such a support to me throughout my life and will always remain with me as they have helped make me the person I am today.

You can see who else has linked up with The Reading Residence for more words of the week. It sounds like Jocelyn has been kept on her toes lately by her little man.

    I’m so sorry for your loss. As you so beautifully write, they will always be with you as they are a part of you. A perfect word then, and one that I’ve never heard of before. Do take care x #WotW x
