For a reason......

Sometimes strange things happen and mum thinks they happen for a reason.. When things seem to pile up and you wonder just  when they are going to get better. Mum goes for a visit to the crematorium, she wonders through the grounds, looks at all the flowers and sits on a seat and kind of talks to grandma and tries to put things in perspective..            
                                                 Today mum went to visit and placed a spray of flowers under the tree that grandma used to like to put flowers for grandad. Mum happened to look up and what she saw took her breath away... You will have heard me say many times that grandma just loved these little birds..
                                                    Mum looked up and saw that someone had placed a little robin there. Not a real one but non the less it made mum gasp and made her smile through tears. Grandma's robin...
                                                   A sign.. Mum would like to think so and just when it was needed...
                                                      Love and hugs to all.. GJ xx

We don't think *everything* happens for a reason, but we definitely think that was a sign that everything will be Okay. And we do think that we can create our own meaning and reasons, and that that is just as valid.

Hugs and purrs.

Mom always likes to think of robins as signs of the new life in spring. So this must be a good sign for your Mum too.
