Today brought heartbreaking news for a much loved and respected member of the blogging community
Upon hearing that most devastating of news the rest of that community held tight their children, and said a silent prayer for Jenny and David. I did some work for her on a memory canvas and her love of her growing family shone through.
I cant begin to comprehend what it is to lose a child, I pray I never have to.
But I wanted to express something small and personally meaningful that happened tonight.
A few days ago I lost my wing, its my most favourite piece of jewellry after my wedding and engagement rings.
Its worth nothing but sentimental value and was a symbol of something very personal to me and my history.
It made me feel so very sad to lose it, my own children and even the children at the Place2Be adore it and love to ponder over it being either a bird wing or an angels wing and what it symbolises for them, I’d even go so far to say that its become a part of me as a therapist.
Anyway tonight, after such a very sad day, it appeared, in a place it should never have been.
I gathered it up and the first thing that came into my mind was that maybe in its absence it helped little Matilda Mae on her way to Heaven, carried on an angels wing.
Bless you Matilda Mae, sleep tight. Love and prayers to your mummy and daddy on this the saddest of days x
‘may angels protect you and sadness forget you, little star’
