Day 7 Advent Blog

I can't believe that it is 6 weeks since my dear Mum passed away.  Life does go on and each day it is getting a bit easier for me.

I found this on Pebbledash's blog and I hope she doesn't mind me using it here.  I found the last 2 lines particularly moving.

A Pueblo Indian Prayer

Hold on to what is good,
Even if it's a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe,
Even if it's a tree that stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do,
Even if it's a long way from here.
Hold on to your life,
Even if it's easier to let go.
Hold on to my hand,
Even if I've gone away from you.

Susan, I'm so sorry to hear about your Mum. I'm glad you found the poem. It's beautiful, isn't it. Go gently.
