So I spent today talking to my mother. She had me laughing and crying for the better part of three hours. It is the type of conversation you enjoy but hate having because of the range of subjects that were covered. We covered old memories, new grand children, the type of family we are and her last wishes.

Phew it wasn't what I think I was about to hear but it was what she wished to speak of and when my mother speaks I have learned not to argue but to listen. We spoke of the state of affairs of the family and her wishes for her funeral. To all the member of the family who may be offended later on I apologies. But she has very clearly stated what her last wishes are and I for one will try to see that they are seen to.

I will only make one move she doesn't know about and that will be to see that she is reunited with my father after her parting. I will stop here for now as my tears are clouding my vision.
