After all this time

About two years ago, my girlfriend gave me a few pine cone shampoo gingers which I planted and forgot about.
It was only when she visited my home, and would ask how they were doing that I would remember that they were there.
I always felt so guilty because hers would be blooming all over the place and she'd always comment that mine should be blooming too, especially after we'd had a considerable amount of rainfall.
Well today I was greeted by this wonderful sight in my garden.
Pine cone shampoo ginger
Zingiber zerumbet

The flowers shoot up from ground level and when squeezed a lovely scented soapy liquid emerges.

I wanted to enjoy their beauty indoors, and in my haste to cut them, I took an unladylike tumble in the garden........ I heard the familiar laughter and then the wind whispered in my ear...."Go on....get on with it."

Here is where I leave you


 December 16, 1955 - September 22, 2014

My best friend has taken a different path on the road of life......his life here on this earth suddenly cut short.
My school day romance....turned into a marriage, a beautiful daughter, and lots of happy times.
My confidante and protector, my "I will always love you."
No more will I hear your spoken words, just a whisper in the wind is all that will remain.
Beautiful memories and cherished moments....our daughter I will treasure more dearly.
Go peacefully my dear friend, travel the spiritual journey and enjoy all the beauty that it has to offer.
You will be in my heart forever.
Rest in Peace.

Yesterday in a beautiful Service of Thanksgiving I laid my dear ex-hubby to rest with a heavy heart and many many tears.

The Broken Chain

We little knew that morning that

God was going to call your name

In life we loved you dearly

In death we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you,

You did not go alone;

For part of us went with you.

The day God called you home.

You left us peaceful memories,

Your love is still our guide,

And though we cannot see you,

You are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken

And nothing seems the same,

But as God calls us one by one,

The chain will link again.
