Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Good morning, just put a pot of coffee on if you would like to join me....

we were away for the weekend celebrating my cousin's 70th birthday. We took mother and stayed overnight, the first time we have taken her away for two and a half years!Must admit I was rather nervous to see how she would cope being in a different house, 200 miles in the car, and comfort stops at the motorway services. (But she met Pudsey bear at Fleet and we took a photo! )

All my eight cousins were at the party and they were so supportive , they took over and Billy and I were able to relax and enjoy ourselves. I didn't get to bed till the early hours, such fun. Mum said she woke up and thought" this isn't my room" but when she saw her clothes hanging on the wardrobe she knew she was ok!!

Yesterday my cousins son took us to a lovely restaurant in Salisbury for brunch and mum coped really well.It has made me think that we could maybe do more outings if we have other people with us to help.

Today we are having tea with our beautiful granddaughter Bunny, she is 7 today. How she changed our lives seven years ago, what joy and happiness little ones bring! Being with my cousins and some of their grandchildren made me think how the next generations will carry on the love and family ties that my mother and her parents instilled in us.It feels good!!

Have caught up with the crew this morning, we too remembered September the 11th and lit a candle. Thought of Billy's family in NJ and the friends they lost.

The sun is shining here on the Essex coast, sending love and sunshine to you all, specially Spaw, Nigel and Ann.

much love,
Wendy xxxxxxxx
