A little Heart is Breaking...
I was hoping to be back blogging but life is throwing a few curly ones at the moment.I know many of you comment on my lovely Mum and this is just a short blog to let you know her baby sister passed away yesterday morning at 1.30am.
Patricia Alison was 88 and until the later part of last year was vibrant and independant.A fall started the changes in her life ,such as being literally shoved into a nursing home overnight.No goodby to her beloved dog Billy,no gooby to the friends who always checked on her,no goodby to her much loved ocean just down the road or to her things she loved.Straight away far from home into the mist of strangers,she sat a solitary soul until at last peace came and took her from her misery.She was far from her home where folk could have visited her,she has one child only and we are so sad that she has such a cold herat.
Mums little heart is broken as we sit and talk,Mum now 92 is the last one of her family left,her twin going first 7 years ago,then her sooo loved broher 79 suddenly going almost a year to this date when Aunty Pat has gone now too.She is a tiny little darling her shoulders shake as the tears fall and we cry together,I tell Mum "I am afraid this will pull you down"..."no she replied I won't let it".
My Mum had the hardest journey in life out of all the siblings that had given her strength,be is tiny but robust if that makes and sense.If I can be half the person in my life that my mother has been I have done well.
The following days need to be spent cossiting her as she has to deal with the pain of not being able to travel far away to the funeral,just as she had to bear the same pain when brother John died.We will get through this time as she shows us how to deal with these things we will hold her close and protect this tiny soul.
Rest in peace Aunty Pat,we know your Mum would have been awaiting her favourite daughter( according to Mum lol) and that Mum is worrying that Pat and John will have a fight as they did not get along very well when here on earth Mums twin Thel would just look on as she was always just in the background no fuss. Mum is feeling very alone right now,yes she has us but her actual family as she knows it has gone and left her behind .So I will be back and I will take some very early in the morning time to keep up with all your blogs but probably won't have time to comment.
