It's 2yrs today since my dear mum passed away.
We all miss her and she would be thrilled that her 13th great grandchild was born last night.

1st grandchild for my older brother, her 1st born child.

Memories a poem by Louise Bailey

I feel a warmth around me
like your presence is so near,
And I close my eyes to visualize
your face when you were here,
I endure the times we spent together
and they are locked inside my heart,
For as long as I have those memories
we will never be apart,
Even though we cannot speak no more
my voice is always there,
Because every night before I sleep
I have you in my prayer.

Dear GlasgowLass


I like the picture of your mum. :-)

Anniversaries are always very painful and hard and two years is not that long
to recover from loss.

It is wonderful news that your mum has a new great-grandchild.

Welcome to the world greetings to the little one.

Hope the mother takes things easy for a while.

Caring thoughts to you and your family.

Take gentle care
My love Elizabeth, EOS

Thank you all for your kindness.
James, the poem is lovely <3

Elizabeth, I like that pic too.
Summer 1949, mum was 19yrs old and had just won a local beauty competion at the fair in her Donegal home town.
That's the day she met my Dad who was in Ireland on holiday.

She came over to Glasgow a few months later, and they were married just before Christmas. <3 <3 <3

Anniversaries are hard when they arrive, they do bring back memories. I hope all your memories make you smile today.
