October Days and A Favourite Pink Top

I think last week I may have said I would post a new picture of Aunt. Maybe I didn’t. Anyway, here she is wearing her favourite pink top.

Auntie Mary October 2015

I think this is the first time a photo of her has made me feel sad. The lights are still on; she’s still Aunt; but it’s all becoming too much for her. I hope I shall be able to post another photo of her, still smiling, maybe still wearing her favourite pink top; but I feel the sands are running through the glass rather faster than before.

I told her this time that she has her supporters worldwide, people who love her smile and are wishing her well. She took it in her stride.

Of course she did.

  1. I see her and her smile makes me smile. I don’t see the part where it is becoming too much for her, although I am all too familiar with it because of my Mom’s fight with lung cancer. I love this pink top and I love seeing her smile. I think my heart will break when you post and tell us what I most fear to hear. Auntie Mary… I had an Aunt Mary. She was my Mom’s youngest sister and I loved her… she was so full of mischief and spirit. Love this picture Isobel, thanks so much for sharing… ♥

  2. Aunt has the most special smile, with a twinkle in her eye. The pink top and the cardigan with the embellished border suit her so well. Hold on to her while you can, Isobel.
