To Mother with Love

Today is Mother’s 12th anniversary and it feels incredible that so many years could have slipped by since her death.

Anyone who dips in and out of this blog will know that she and Dad, who died 16 months after her, are very much part of my everyday life in terms of their inspiration and love.

It always seems important to mark the anniversary by consorting with nature so I headed out to the swan family very early this morning and drove out along the coast here in Co. Waterford that Mother loved so much and where we shared so many happy moments. It was perfect, even though I am still wibbly wobbly after Covid vaccine 2.

  4. Lovely words and images. I find I’m more affected by the season, as both my parents died in Autumn, as I’m not a date person. Though the seasonal thing as lessened with time, though I do remember them every day and also their birthdays and Christmas of course.

  5. An uplifting post in strange times – an elongated winter of the mind. Soon to pass…
