The Big T’s mother died last weekend. She had suffered ill-health for a number of years, and finally, after a spell in hospital, came home to spend her final days cared for by family.
It’s only in darkness that we can really see light. The last few weeks have brought light from unexpected sources; old friends arriving to offer support, grandchildren demonstrating again and again what fine adults they have become, professionals going way more than the extra mile to comfort and assist. These kindnesses large and small have shone bright and illuminated hope.
