Ten

Thursday, February 7, 2013

Dear Olive,
It's been ten years now, without my Mum. I can't really put into words exactly what this means, or feels. But in ten years, she's missed out on a lot. (As have we, missed out on her.) I don't know if she is, but I hope she's out there somewhere, watching sometimes. Smiling.

May your grandmother always be remembered. I'm sure if she was here, she would spoil Olive rotten ; )

You know strangely I was thinking about you and you loosing your mum today - completely out of the blue, I swear I'm not stalking you :p - and I just couldn't comprehend the utter loss and hole it would create.
I am so sorry you have missed out on time with her and I definitely believe that she is out there keeping an eye on you.

Oh this brought tears to my eyes, the sense of loss must be overwhelming sometimes. The flowering gum you have planted is beautiful. x

Dear Kellie and Olive, very difficult to type and read when my eyes are filled with tears but just want to say you are both totally beautiful in all the ways that we readers see you here and I am very sorry that your mum and grandmother is not here in person to be with you but I do believe she is all around and within who you both are. Thinking of you xx
