Just being ME

Please say hello ... I love comments!


Just this afternoon I put flowers on Mum's plot for her birthday - she loved lilies.

Thinking of you Louise xxx

An Irish Prayer....

Death is nothing at all.
It does not count.
I have only slipped away into the next room.
Everything remains as it was.
The old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged.
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
Call me by the old familiar name.
Speak of me in the easy way which you always used.
Put no sorrow in your tone.
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.
Let it be spoken without effort
Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was.
There is unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner.
All is well. Nothing is hurt; nothing is lost.
One brief moment and all will be as it was before.
How we shall laugh at the trouble of parting, when we meet again.

Take comfort in your memories Louise as its a link between you and your mum that can never be broken,

Hi Louise
I have been scrolling back re-reading through your posts until I came to your post for your mother last year and that lovely Beatles song. When my mum died in August someone in blogland sent me a poem in which the last two lines are
'Listen to my footfall in your heart. I am not gone, I merely walk within you' and I think of this every day.
