A Wonderful tribute to a wonderful woman. I really enjoyed reading this. I sought my soul But my soul I could not see. I sought my God But my God eluded me. I sought my mother And there i found all three I constantly worry about my mother as she gets older Everyday and wonder what i would do without her, I refuse to even think about it. A really great write with a lot of passion and love. Im sure shes very proud of you. Regards xx

Such a beautiful tribute to a beautiful red bird. Yes, the fear of impermanence lies like a shadow behind every child's love for its mother. I remember as a wee girl feeling the agonizing terror of 'what would happen if my mother died....' It still gives me goosebumps. When she finally did die, she looked very small - almost like a child. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
