As we move into another season I am surprised by the sea of blue flowers adorning my flower beds and yard. These were Ryleigh’s favourite flower and every time I go out in my garden it seems like the amount of blossoms have doubled. Just the other day I saw a beautiful butterfly. I can feel Ryleigh’s presence and so I am spending many hours outside. As I tend to the garden I reflect on all my precious moments as a mother – with Chloe and Ryleigh. The last eight months has been very painful for me. The hurt that comes from your children leaving you in ways that are not expected is unexplainable. But through unconditional love for my daughters I can overcome the heartache and learn to embrace the calm and serene times.
