I have returned, today, from a few days in Somerset West (Western Cape) visiting my Mum who, for readers who don’t know, is in Frail Care in an old aged home. It’s a visit I try and do as often as I can (we live in Johannesburg).
Always very sad. Always very heart wrenching.
She is extremely thin. She doesn’t know I’m there. Although this time .. twice .. there was a flicker of life and recognition in her eyes. I am hoping ..
I am so saddened to see her like this. I talk to her and hold her hand. As I look down at her hand so many memories come flooding back.
I placed my hand on her heart.
I pray my warmth and love surrounds her while I’m there .. and stays with her until my return
On Wednesday she turned 86. Tomorrow is Mothers Day.
I love you Mummy and miss you so very very much xxx
