Hello

I have had a horrible week dealing with a brother more interested in money than his Mum and was feeling very low until I visited Mum yesterday, she was sitting in the chair next to me and although her speech is mostly garbled these days we had the following conversation
"where's" Kathleen gone?"
"I am here"
"the other Kathleen" she put out her hand to show a child size person.
"is she your little girl"
"yes"
"what is she like"
"she has dark blonde hair, she is georgous"
Then she took both my hands and looking straight at me said "no-one will take you away from me." She smiled as I told her nothing would ever come between us and promptly shut her eyes again. After that we were back to garbled words, but I could not have cared less.
I was so touched and thankful to have her back for those precious seconds, I thought I would share them with you.

Kathleen

Dear Kathleen

Aren't these moments precious? your post brought tears to my eyes.

Remembering brief interludes like this is what keeps us going, so cherish each one and bring them out on the dark days.

Cheers Barraf

Two of Me !

Those are the moments where you feel that life is better than you thought after all.
On a funny note, I have an identical twin, so there are literally two of me, and when I told Dad a while ago that I was one of the twins, he said oh the twins, sure I haven't seen them in years !!(we both see him roughly twice a week, so thats 4 days out of 7 !!), but it made me laugh ! :)

Kathleen,
That did bring tears to my eyes. You must get the same feeling I get when I am my mother's daughter & not her sister.

What a wonderful moment for you.

Joanne
