I’ve spent more than half of my life without my mother.

Yesterday was not a good day. The anniversary of her sudden daeth.

The coming days will be even more difficult. Time Does NOT Heal – when the pain is compounded by others and that pain taken into yourself.

Memory, all alone in the moonlight
I can dream of the old days
Life was beautiful then
I remember the time I knew what happiness was
Let the memory live again

Mum was never my friend. Sadly. I’d like to hope that, maybe, now ….!

She bought me that life-changing Christmas present when I was 5 years old. A huge, gorgeous, children’s book all about Greek Myth. The first story was Pandora’s Box.
