To My Wonderful Mother


No mum I can not sing!!!!!
I try and I love it, but I am not very good at it!

You could in fact sing , and paint and do so may things and so well.
Far better than I ever could.?
But ...... sadly like me you were a product of your age and how it affected us as women _ at any given era .............crap wasnt it my mum?? So very , so very, very sorry.

I am NOT, nor were you in any way, a Christian
No, you were out on your own in having your own beliefs in an era when that was not acceptable.
It still is not acceptable really ....is it??? ..sadly it is not ..............so to my lovely and so  very brave mum that went before me.

To you all ...... all children and their mothers everywhere.

Lest we forget and we do........... don't we ? We do all at times forget, who rode the boards for us, who went that extra mile, stood out for.............. their children and for what they believed??
We are all forgotten in the end.

This song I love. It is an old and very  beautiful folk song and please my mum ignore the christian references. As it is not just about this.......or at all about this for me .............. but how we felt at your funeral!!!



I just hope where ever you are you are mum ......or if you are nowhere????? .....you are somewhere you can not be ever hurt, or are nowhere so you can NEVER , EVER be hurt anymore ......I know you were so hurt by life but as your child I could not help
Bye to my mother - love you so much

BYE!

So I hope that my mother you are now at peace and you do know that I do so love you?

Lyrics to May the circle be unbroken :
To my Mother Phyllis Reed



I was standing by my window
On a cold and cloudy day
When I saw the hearse come rollin'
For to take my mother away.

May the circle be unbroken
By and by lord, by and by,
There's a better home a-waitin'
In the sky lord, in the sky.

I told the undertaker:
"undertaker, please drive slow,
Cause that lady that you're haulin'
Lord, I hate to see her go".

May the circle be unbroken
By and by lord, by and by,
There's a better home a-waitin'
In the sky lord, in the sky.

Well I followed close behind her,
Tried to hold my head and be brave,
But I could not hold my sorrow
When they laid her in the grave

May the circle be unbroken
By and by lord, by and by,
There's a better home a-waitin'
In the sky lord, in the sky.

I was standing by my window
On a cold and cloudy day
When I saw the hearse come rollin'
For to take my mother away.

May the circle be unbroken
By and by lord, by and by,
There's a better home a-waitin'
In the sky lord, in the sky.

I told the undertaker:
"undertaker, please drive slow,
Cause that lady that you're haulin'
Lord, I hate to see her go".

May the circle be unbroken
By and by lord, by and by,
There's a better home a-waitin'
In the sky lord, in the sky.

Well I followed close behind her,
Tried to hold my head and be brave,
But I could not hold my sorrow
When they laid her in the grave

May the circle be unbroken
By and by lord, by and by,
There's a better home a-waitin'
In the sky lord, in the sky.

It may seem like a load of rubbish , but actually every bit if the day of your funeral this song reflects in some way.
If all that is 'a-waiting' is peace for you and total nothing that is great as you are out of any pain

Love you my mum, you were the total and utterly the  greatest!
