it is so difficult
I crave quiet and calm
it has been an emotional few days
I brewed a pot of tea and took a mug outside in the sunshine
and sat in one of the new red chairs
I needed to listen to the birdsong
look at the flowers
soak in all the beauty that I could
to refuel my spirit
soft greens and whites mingle together
the red chairs are comfy
I think they will be one of my favourite spots when I need to take a break in the garden
our Iceberg rose is in bloom
love the purity that white flowers exude
the new pot of geraniums will last all summer
sunshine and water
and a little TLC
a lovely and gracious woman has left us...
she lived a full life
inspired and nurtured a family
she was an important woman in my life
she was gracious
always put her family first
she leaves behind
years of memories and events that can be recalled
whenever we choose to do so
She will hold a special place in my heart forever
and I am honoured to have known her
I have wept...
my goodness we are all weeping
we cannot stem the tide...
“Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built or a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched some way so your soul has somewhere to go when you die, and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you're there."
