One Year

It's one year today since I had my last half-proper conversation with my mother - I wrote about it here...

Over the whole two weeks during which every day I had visited the nursing home where she was slowly sinking, she hadn't really given me any sign that she was aware of what was going on... but on that day, 30th May last year, she was sat up in bed as I went into her room and she managed to say, "I haven't seen you for ages..."

And that was the last afternoon we spent together.

It's a pity that time doesn't slow down for us sometimes.

Hi Anji,
Aye, it would be nice to slice up time and keep bits of it...

Strange how many becme so clear headed just before they pass, I often wonder if that's God's way of aloowing us to say "good-bye".

Hi destiny...a similar thought occurred to me too. I was thinking maybe evolution has built in some kind of mechanism for saying goodbye...who knows..
