I spent the afternoon with my beautiful nan & mum today. I cherish these times so much as I've got massive love with these two wonderful strong women. Women that have had their share of trials just like everybody else, that makes me love them even more!
It's really hit home to me over the last two days aging is such a natural process that we all go through if we're lucky enough to get to a grand old age! But my heart aches as I'd love to be there more for my nan. She lives a fair distance away from us so it's not a nip-in job. So that with working two jobs it can get tricky quickly.
I'd love to click my fingers and be living say 300yrs ago in a little community where families live close by & live off the land, cooking big meals together etc. etc.. What a romantic notion hey!. which has no stead at all as they didn't have the healthcare so life expectancy was what? in the late 30's or something.
So really what am I saying.. I miss years ago when we all used to have a big family dinner, my nan, grandad & uncle used to come up then the boys would go off to the pub while the women & us kids would be left to prep veg for tea, chat, get crafty, generally just hang out together. That's when you learn little family traits & secrets. I've always looked up to my nan and I love her more than I can actually ever say. It makes me so sad to see her health deteriorate even though I know it's a natural process. We all come from the spirit & earth & that's where we all will return to when it's our time.
I just wish we could hold each other tight and never let go..
To life! To love! To happiness.. and to Cherishing each & every person in your life. So mote it be. 💛
I hate to be really deep and I've been told that I'm pretty deep mostly all of the time. But that's just me! I love deep. I live deep. Anyone that doesn't like it, fine! They don't have to be around me an all of my crazy deepness. That's cool. But to all those few who do stick around, I promise you I won't love you all any less than deep!
