DONA NOBIS PACEM....Plus memories...

I am joining in with everyone and wishing for world peace

I quietly think and hope....

The 4th of November is also a sad day for mum because its the day 3 years ago that she visited and found her mum had left for the bridge. There is never a day goes by that mum does not think of her mum and wish she was still here. It has also become very difficult in mums job because every time she goes in to a no response she worries she will see the same thing. This lovely graphic is what Ann at Zoolatry did for us on one anniversary and the one mum puts with flowers at the crematorium. Grandma and grandad are both on here so it remembers them both and shows us all together. Grandma and grandad were married 63 years when grandad died.

Also right on cue as they have done each year since she died grandma's cacti have flowered for her...


Wishing you all peaceful love and hugs..... GJ xxxx

It is wonderful that grandmum sends such a beautiful message of love every year by making the cactus bloom! May you mum find comfort in her sweet memories.

Ginger Jasper give your mum a special hug from me. My mum passed away two years ago this month on 22 Nov (also my sons birthday). She and my dad were a couple of weeks short of their 65 wedding anniversay. I miss my mum everyday too. No worries (cause our mums would want it that way) and extra love, Carol x

We are purring for peace, too. We know it must be very hard for your Mom worrying about other people who have left for the bridge. You have created a great memorial for your Grandparents, GJ. My mother had some flowers that her Dad gave her and they bloomed most Christmases to remind her of him. Last Christmas was the first Mom was gone and the flowers did not bloom!

What a really lovely, very touching post, dearest Jasper. . Peace in our world, most certainly! But the ability to make peace with the events in our lives and find peace in our hearts too. As the hymn goes, let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.
Isn't the cactus just amazing! There is something so comforting and heartwarming about it's blooming in memory of your Gran.
All of our love to you and your family.

Julia Williams said...

GJ, that is so nice that she sends the cacti blossoms to remember her by. Sending you all purrs for a peaceful day.

P.S. Is it only my blog you have trouble commenting on, or others too? If it's just mine, I want to have our tech person take a look at that and see what might be the problem.

WE sure do send tons of hugs to your Mom GJ since this is such a hard and sad time for her. We are sending lots of purrs and we are depending on you GJ to give Mom some extra snuggles today.
Tell Mom to come visit the auction. Maybe that will take her mind off of things for a minute. She loves to shop. The link is on the CB.
Sending tons of purrs.

Dearest Ginger Jasper

I felt more than just a hint of teariness reading your post today...It has only been three years since my mum went over the bridge, and I miss her all the time too. Please give your mum my love, and tell her it is perfect that all these peaceful thoughts are around on the anniversary her mom went over the bridge, and that we can all visit every anniversary with peaceful wishes x

So, though late, I wish for peace for you, your mom and all who feel then need for it.

[A link to your post will be on my blog 'Peace Bloggers Unite' soon]
