Sadness and Peace

Thank you for all your kind wishes over these last few tough weeks. Your good wishes and prayers have meant so much. The friendships you make are the nicest part of blogging.


My mum died early last night. She had been in much pain. In the end it was very peaceful, with me, my sister and my aunt by her side, loving her.


I was very grateful for these last few days with her ... as well as a lifetime.






cheers
Fiona

  3. Sometimes pain and peace are the end result of a beautiful life well-lived. I lost my mom and dad last year, 6 months apart. It was bittersweet, but I still miss them terribly. You'll have to go back and read my first entries. That's what started my blogging journey. It somehow helped to write about it.
