There has been much to do around home over the Easter break - a little maintenance here and there, spring cleaning the house, pressure cleaning the driveway, patio and deck and sorting through old pot plants. Even the buddha statue that sits under my golden robinia tree needed his knees sweeping of leaves! Finally I potted up some punnets of pansies to add a dash of colour. It feels good now that it's all done!
Then in the early hours of Easter Sunday morning my mother passed away. A sad time for all of us. My mother had dementia and has lived in a nursing home for several years. Thankfully we were able to say our goodbyes and she died peacefully. My family is now gathering to remember her life and spirit.
