RIP little sister..

 

If I had a single flower for every time I think of you, I could walk forever in my garden..

Although we were unbelievably lucky to have my young sister with us for a few extra months longer than were expected I am heartbroken to say that her inspirational and courageous battle is now over and she was laid to rest this week. Every member of our family and her many friends will miss her in their own special way, she was a light in all of our lives and it is impossible at this time to imagine her not being here. We spent the time we had well, visiting Araluen to see the tulips, trips out to see the wildflowers and even a trip into the city to see the Van Gogh exhibition. We will cherish those times. All of the images here are from my garden where I have spent most of my time these last few days, often accompanied by my little feline companion. It will take however long it takes but I do hope to come back in one form or another.. we'll see. Take care and stay safe..

  18. The loss of a child is something no parent should have to endure and it is always hard to lose a sibling. My heart goes out to you and your family.

  21. I am so sorry, Grace, so sorry. To guide your parents is bad enough, but a younger Sibling.... Big hugs from here.
    It´s always so easy to be busy in life and at some point "forget" others aren´t that lucky.
    I thought of you often, but also guessed you need a time-out.
    You were and are in my heart.
    Glad you have the feline friend. And all the flowers. And the good time of the year ahead.
