17th September



It would have been my sister's 47th birthday today.  Maybe this date is always going to be a tricky one.   This week my Mum and Dad unveiled a bench that has been placed at Hadleigh Farm in her memory. It's where Esther did voluntary work, helping people with learning difficulties train so that they could take up employment.

On the day of her funeral I shared one of the songs that we played at Esther's grave side.  Here's the other.

  1. I have lost my copy of this album…I used to play it over and over when I first had it……love them! Marcus's voice is so beautiful.

    1. I've only recently discovered Mumford and Sons. Sometimes I can be a bit behind the times. This is my favourite album. It's so lyrically profound. xx

  2. Hopefully over time the sadness of birthdays, holidays, and others will be met with smiles of memories. Both present, but the happy memories helps the sadness be bittersweet, not just bitter.

    1. The smiley memories are already there even though sadness predominates. xx
