Day of Memory

The tide recedes but leaves behind
Bright seashells in the sand
The sun goes down but gentle warmth
Still lingers on the land

The music stops and yet lingers on
In sweet refrain.
For every joy that passes
Something beautiful remains.

Something Beautiful Remains
by Martha Vashti Pearson

So, my dearest boy
On this 26th day of memory
life has changed because of Covid19
but your family and friends continue to
carry you closely in hearts full of memory.

You were the best big brother a brother could have!
I reckon you were the best best friend a friend could have
and we are so grateful to them for all the stories
they passed on!
Stories of mischief
Stories of kindness and consideration
Adventures shared.
They all helped enrich our memories.

All my boys have always been
the sunshine in my life.
So proud of you all

God bless.

Growing Up Behind the Garage!

She was a great mother
though Handy Hubby reckons
that is the father.

All of a sudden it seemed
all four heads were covered in feathers....

.....One teetered on the edge.....

....and flew into the undergrowth by the stream.
Within four days the nest was empty.
And now we can't tell who is who among all the robins
bobbing about the garden.
In a flash
all grown up.

Makes me wonder how these two munchkins
are getting on.
We had the privilege of having them cross our path
way back in 2016.
