My mum and I in days gone by. It is almost a year since my mum died, it has gone by so quickly in some ways, yet so slowly in others. I reckon I think about her more now than ever before. Today I visited her grave and put her favourite pink flowers there. It is in a perfect setting near the hills above Cheltenham, in alawned garden. The trees are all golden, orange and red now that Autumn is here and they look so beautiful. She would have enjoyed that.
As We Look Back ~ unknown
As we look back over time
We find ourselves wondering …..
Did we remember to thank you enough
For all you have done for us?
For all the times you were by our sides
To help and support us …..
To celebrate our successes
To understand our problems
And accept our defeats?
Or for teaching us by your example,
The value of hard work, good judgement,
Courage and integrity?
We wonder if we ever thanked you
For the sacrifices you made.
To let us have the very best?
And for the simple things
Like laughter, smiles and times we shared?
If we have forgotten to show our
Gratitude enough for all the things you did,
We’re thanking you now.
And we are hoping you knew all along,
How much you meant to us.
