|Me and My Babes|
It's strange but these last 2 weeks have also given me what is now a rare opportunity - the chance to be with all 3 of my children at the same time (can you still refer to them as your children once they're adult and towering over you?!). With each of us scattered in constantly changing places around the globe it takes some arranging to even Skype each other across the many time zones. These last few days have given us some sad but very special memories to carry with us always.
I've brought Dad's shirts back to the US with me, I'm going to make a quilt for Mum to keep. The pastel colours look great together and I'm looking forward to making it up for her.
I'll leave you with this link to a song that my Dad used to sing to my Mum when I was growing up, John Rowles 'If I Only Had Time'. I've never been able to listen to it without thinking of him and crying so it was very fitting that we played it as we entered the church at his funeral.
