Now we are six.....

I so love Eden's Fresh Horses Brigade this week....if there was an open mic at a birthday party 'What would you say?' Words can be so powerful and for me this says it all....

As a child I was so in love with this poem by AA Milne & I still love it today, I can see myself as that small child, standing up straight telling the world that I am now 6,and I like it!

 Now We Are Six - A.A. Milne

When I was one I had just begun
When I was two I was nearly new

When I was three I was hardly me
When I was four I was not much more

When I was five I was just alive
 Now I am six I'm as clever as clever, So I think I'll be six now, forever and ever.....

I'm now 46 and that poem still bring me joy, I think I'll be 46 now for ever and ever!

It's a sign.....

Continuing on from last week & joining the Fresh Horse Brigade, Eden has put another post out there asking about signs that Guardian Angels are amongst us & that sense that everything will be ok....

I know with absolute certainty when I can smell my Mum's perfume, Clinique's Aromatics Elixir that all will be ok. My Mum died very suddenly in 2008 from a DVT & I remember as clear as yesterday when we came home from the hospital, in the early hours of the morning, getting into bed & trying to get some fitfull sleep. As I lay there I suddenly smelt my Mum's perfume & this sense of incredible calm washed over me, I settled & managed to get some sleep. The odd thing was, I don't own any of that perfume, it was hers alone, I never wore it, it wasn't even in my house!

In the weeks & months after her death it was a very troubled & turbulent time. I was engaged in a legal battle with her then 3rd husband & we were having heated emails about who should go where on her final plaque. He wanted his daughters above me (her only child) on the plaque. It was in the early hours of the morning that I sat at the computer & wrote him a heartfelt email putting my case forward, as I sat there again I smelt very strongly my Mum's perfume. Again, that sense of calm washed over me, I knew I was doing the right thing & it would turn out ok.

There have been so many instances when I have been feelingbdown & not coping with her death at all that I smell her perfume on other women & feel that sense of calm, almost a connection to my Mum again & I find myself saying 'Hi Mum', to me all becomes right with the world & I know with absolute certainty that things are going to be ok!
