Three Years On

Today is Winnie the Pooh Day.
It is also the third anniversary of losing my Mum. She was 95.
Hubby says he looks at me sometimes and sees my Mum.
I know. I see her every time I look in the mirror.

I remember visiting a Great Aunt and Uncle when I was staying with my grandfather in 1970.  Both in their 80s, they kept calling me Marjorie, I suppose because I was with their brother, and they assumed I was his daughter.
Mum used to say I looked more like her Mum, but I only have the one picture of her.
Three years. It seems longer because of her dementia, but other times, only recent.
We lit a huge church candle every day over Christmas and New Year for Mum, the Dads, Maggie and all of our friends now departed. It finally burnt out on January 2nd.
With the present situation regarding Covid, Mum may well have been very confused and distressed if she was still with us. She is in our hearts and memories though, always close.
My reflection tells me that.

Bless you Mum. Give Dad a kiss from me. I miss you both.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
