The 6th of September...


Today is the anniversary of my brother's death... it is also my baby's due date.

While I suspect our little Puggle won't make an appearance today, the prophetic nature of this synchronicity is not lost on me. As my Mum just said to me on the phone, the loss of one treasured soul will always be the catalyst for the creation of another... even if that takes 27 years. I miss Justin terribly, especially at this time in my life but I know he will be looking down from on high, protecting us and loving us as always.

Happy days my beautiful brother x

Albert Einstein: "There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle." How beautiful to have your brother looking after you. Xx

Angela, I remember reading the beautiful piece you wrote in Frankie about your brother, and how moved I was by it, as I am by this post. Best wishes and virtual hugs to your entire family. And I hope your little one arrives easily! :)

My thoughts are with you today Angela. I'm sure in some ways that sad day still seems like yesterday. I lost my brother at age 21. The memories are so cherished, as is the hope of seeing him again one bright day. It's my mum's b'day today and being one who remembers dates, I know you will come to mind every 6th of September from now on:o)

Dear Angela
I know he is looking down on you and will be celebrating your new arrival some day soon... I understand how 27 years can be both like a lifetime and the blink of an eye.. Next week will be the 35yrs since my mum died... It is a little surreal...

I'll be thinking about you in the coming days... You must be very excited by now.. Best wishes dear Angela.. xxx Julie

As a Hindu....it seems very significant, the dates colliding like that.
You must be looking forward to the appearance of the little one :)
