Today is Tuesday 18th January

Today marks the fourth anniversary of losing my Mum. She would have been 100 this year.
Every time we see the hay rolls in the fields, I remember the day she was standing by the window in the cottage absolutely fascinated by the ‘doughnut machine’ working in the field opposite.
Similar memories are in abundance when we see rabbits on the roadside, pheasants in the fields, and the scare crow kites that fly high and are so realistic, Mum once asked me what kind of bird it was.

Mum loved flowers and animals, nuts and simple pleasures, she was so easy to please.

For today, 18th January 2022.

A gentle voice called you to his side
After twenty two years apart,
I can see you simply taking his hand
As the beats ceased in your heart.
Together again, young and whole,
Where pain and stress don’t exist,
Two wonderful people, my parents were
And still so sadly missed.
I think of you both every day,
Your picture smiles from the shelf,
And in the mirror when I brush my hair,
I’m not seeing myself:
You are part of me as I am of you,
I hope I have got the good,
And every day my dearest wish
Is to hug you both if I could.

About pensitivity101

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.
