A friend sent me this link, a story of one family.
Life is fragile, mother’s love can be stretched far and wide, and she has busy days, Luckily the father is there to give a helping hand at meal times.
Soon the family grows old enough to leave home.
I wonder if that MUM felt as other Mums do when there is the “Empty Nest” as one by one family members become adults and make their own way into the wide world.

Thank you so much for your caring words, my friend is still in hospital, the patient enquiry tells me “ comfortable”, and I truly hope that is how it is. I grieve too early, with much sadness for a life too short, have many memories that will bring tears or a smile, and a photo to remind me of the bright joy and laughter that arrived with each visit. I hope for one more visit, to share laughter, love, and hugs together.
Quotation of the day, from Helen Keller
"My friends have made the story of my life.
In a thousand ways they have turned my limitations into beautiful privileges and enabled me to walk serene and happy in the shadow cast by my desperation."
