Mother's Day & Mars



I feel incredibly blessed to have had such a beautiful grandmother as Mars.


Generous, loving, warm, affectionate, nurturing, talented Mars. She loved being hugged, holding hands, listening, gardening, painting, crafting, cooking, loving.


Yesterday our beloved Mars went to sleep for eternity. I take comfort that she'll be with our Gramps, reunited, on a perfect blue sky Autumn day.


I think of her today, I'm grateful for all the riches she brought to our family - her generous spirit, her love, everything.


Happy Mother's day mamas. I hope everyone has someone as wonderful as Marsy in their lives. And a special happy Mother's Day to my own Mum.

Mars sounds like one fine lady and if I live to be a Grandma, I hope my beautiful future Grand-daughter would say the same things about me.
Keep doing all the loving things that Mars did, to your family. That's how she lives on.

Such beautiful words and a lovely description of your grandma. I lost my Nan a few months ago too, it's just so sad. But nice to think they are meeting up with their loves and old friends.
