Saturday 24th March.
In my sleep, I had called for Mum and heard her distinct reply: ‘I’m coming.’
I awoke smiling, Mum being my first conscious thought of the day.
Hubby and I lit the large Church candle at home at 10.30 at the same time as sending a text to my sister, knowing Mum’s ashes were being scattered at that time.
At 10.31, I sat down at the keyboard and played Wind Beneath My Wings as if my heart would break.
We let the candle burn all day, it’s reflective flame lighting Mum’s face in their wedding anniversary photo for the duration.
