For a garden that has been somewhat neglected, it is obviously able to take care of itself.
Cutting the grass and watering plants, were carried out here and there but only when time permitted.
Life in the garden carried on..........
as I nursed my Mother. In the last few weeks of her life I was humbled by her acceptance of death. A quietness surrounded her, and it was passed to all those who saw her in those last few weeks.
One day, as I sat by her bedside, she was gazing out of the window, at the beautiful blue summer sky.
"Goodbye world" she said with the most lovely smile.
She took my hand. "It is such a beautiful world Cheryl. Take time to enjoy all that is around you."
I will never forget the words she spoke just before she died. They left me with something special........passed from Mother to child.
We all have moments of darkness......but somewhere, sometime we see light, and we once again carry on with life.
I hear my Mothers words on a daily basis............and I smile.
She taught me so much in a lifetime...........thank you Mum.
