21 Years Later

Dear Mum

It has been 21 years today that you left us to take your journey to reunite with creator and our ancestors.  21 years, such a long time yet at times only yesterday, the feelings still raw when our guard is down.

Were you only a year older than I am now?  It seems even more unfair now as I realise that 51 is only the start to embracing life.

You are missed daily and often in my prayers, for guidance, compassion, forgiveness, gratitude and love.

The Easter season is about resurrection to some, yet for us it was a crucifixion that has taken 21 years to come full circle and rebirth for me.  I’m sorry I am such a slow learner and procrastination being my Achilles heal but I am finally going home, in the same season that it began!

You taught me a lot mum, how to show compassion, generosity, forgiveness and love.  You also taught me how not to be, so that I may remain within the lessons of life you showed me, which are the foundation of my being.  Thank you ❤

Thank you for loving me during my ‘spirit’ episodes as a child, through my selfish teenage years and through the first 6yrs of being a mother myself. Your input to our lives has left a huge hole.

So now in my 50th year, I am following in our shared dream to live out our days on our beloved mother land.  A dream you never got to live out.  I will honour you there and carry you with me to all our favourite places, and think of you every time I see a bottle of KEO.

U – Unbeatable

M – Matriarch

I know you would be really proud of our beautiful Natasha, as I am.  She has turned out to be everything and more than what we could have hoped for after such great triple loss, she even looks like you at times.  We speak of you often to keep your memory alive and hearts connected, but, you know that don’t you.  ❤

See you soon in the Vill-Aige then we going to the Thalassa to eat Bowaton. 😉

  1. Ahh, Maria… what a beautiful tribute to your mother. I am so happy for you that you are able to live the dream for both of you!

    Two years ago today my father died. And this morning we put down a beloved old dog… I guess April 19th is a good day to die…

    Sending hugs and love your way today…

  2. This is really a beautiful tribute to your mother, Maria. Good to hear, that you will be able to live out the dream for both of you.

    I lost my father 19 years ago and have often thought, this was so much too early to leave for him. In two years I will have his age for leaving, difficult to understand.

    Send you much love and big hugs today ❤

  3. This brought tears Maria.. Such a beautiful tribute to your Mum.. And I know she is so proud of her daughter who is living out her dream…. Love and Hugs and have a Blessed Journey.. Take care Maria and keep in touch.. xxx
