The Little Snowdrop…

June 12th, 2013

It has taken me almost four months to find the courage to write this post to let all of my lovely followers know my sad news…

My beautiful Mum was finally released from her pain and passed away on Wednesday 27th February at 12.24pm.
Dad and I were with her until the end, by her bedside in the QE Hospital. We are absolutely inconsolable but we take some comfort
from knowing she is no longer suffering.

Mum has left a huge void which shall never be filled, we do not think we shall ever get over her passing, our only hope is that she is with her Mum and Dad who passed away when she was such a young age and who Mum was calling for towards the end.
We are heartbroken and the pain we are feeling is only getting worse… I hope in time we will learn to live with our loss although I know in our hearts we won’t ever get over loosing Mum… I miss her terribly, she was my everything, she was my Best Friend…

ღ ….… Rest in Peace Mum ….… ღ

Mum’s most favourite flower was the delicate Snowdrop hence the poem above which we had printed on an A6 card and had handed out at the Service of ‘Celebration’ of Mums life on Thursday 7th March at South Tyneside Crematorium. The words of the poem mean so much to us as they remind us of Mum… ‘our little snowdrop.’

….… ღ ….…

I would like to take this opportunity to reassure all of my most wonderful clients past, present and future, that I am still working albeit at a slower pace and I am accepting orders and most importantly to thank You all from the bottom of my heart for your patience and continued support… “Thank You.”

As always if you should have any questions or queries not matter how small, please do e~mail me…

The world may never notice if a snowdrop doesn’t bloom
Or even pause to wonder if the petals fall too soon.
But every life whatever forms, or ever comes to be,
Touches the world in some small way for all eternity.
The little one we long for was swiftly here and gone,
But the love that was then planted is a light that still shines on.
And though are arms are empty,
Our hearts know what to do,
by beating out a rhythm
reminding us of you.

    Lisa I am so sorry for you and your Dad. People told me that it would get easier over time when it happened to me. Quite honestly don’t think it did but I learnt to deal with it slowly and some days are still very hard. Did your mum have a favourite tree because you could plant a tree with snowdrops round it. There are one or two places in the north east I think where you can plant a memorial tree. Take time for yourself.

    Dear Lisa
    This is a beautifully written tribute to your mom. It shines with your love for your mom. I am sending you and your Dad thoughtful wishes from SA. A very special piece about a special lady like the snowdrop.
    Best wishes
    Francois
    PS I am looking forward to see all your new dolls, when the time is right for you, however long that may take.

    Thank You My Wee Life for taking the time to write your comment it must have been very difficult to do I understand exactly what you mean… we hope in time to learn to cope with our loss too. There are days when the heartache and pain we feel is unbearable. Sometime in the not too distant future we plan to move and live together… and your idea of planting a tree surrounded by snowdrops is a wonderful one, our friends who have the farm which we visit frequently is laden with snowdrops in the woods and we have found a magical place there too… x

    cuanto siento su perdida y comprendo su dolor, cuando una persona de la familia se va el dolor es mas agudo, pero tenemos que pensar que desde donde este cuidara de nosotros, y siempre vivirá en nuestro recuerdo.
    un abrazo

    Translation:
    As I feel your loss and I understand your pain, when one person in the family is about pain is more acute, but we have to think where this will take care of us, and will always live in our memories.
    a hug
