Today is a pretty exciting day, a day I have been looking forward to for a while. We have 3 of my special cousins Shirley, Gloria and Sherry, flying in from Alberta for a visit. Plus, cousin Carol and Aunt Isabel are again driving in from Swan River. It is so appreciated the cost, the time and the effort they are all putting in just to come to visit. Thank you all. With this wonderful visit in mind, I may not be on the computer every day, we shall see.
A big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my mother. She would today have been 87. So sadly for us, she passed away 15 years ago. Strange, 15 years in someways can seem like forever but in other ways it can seem like it was only yesterday. She spread much joy and light into our lives while here on hearth and some how I can’t help but feel even Heaven is a little better because she is there.
Yesterday, thoughts of death and dying touched me in a special way. Partly, I suppose it may have been, thinking of my mother, her upcoming birthday and her passing. My feelings were enhanced so much when I visited the site of my blog friend Ceeqee (Charles). I ask all to click on the blog roll, visit his site and leave a few words of support.
Charles writes of the passing of his son through suicide. Reading his words you can feel his pain. I can not imagine any thing worse than the loss of a child. Charles, my heart goes out to you. You are in my heart, thoughts and prayers.
