It did it again...

5 years ago today Mum's mum left for the bridge. There is never a day that mum does not think of her. Mum brought her Christmas cactus back to our house and every year it never fails to flower for this date and again at Christmas. Mum saw the buds coming and knew it was not failing her. Grandma is still sending a sign that she is around us.




        Mum's mum and dad.. We miss you..
            I am on my window again and today has been a calm day.

             Love and hugs to all.. GJ xx

Howdy GJ. Our mum is sending your mum a gentle hug cause she understands. The flower is a wonderful reminder. We have that same cactus from our Nana and Poppa's house too. Take care mates and try and eat a little fluffy friend. We LOVED the photo of your grandma and grandpa. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory (and Carol)

That is just so special and sweet. Mom says she has no idea what her Christmas Cacti will do this year as they have all been tucked away in a bedroom during all the renovations. Time will tell. Sometimes they do best when Mom neglects them:)
