So I had one of those moments today that I've always dreaded - putting petrol in the car and then realizing that your wallet is not in your handbag.

My Mom would have been 85 years old this year if she had lived. She gave birth to me 3 weeks after her 30th birthday but passed away when she was only 55.

I had hoped for many years of loving friendship with her but it was not to be. Now...

Almost every day, we sent each other text messages....

One day I looked out the window and saw four black crows surrounding a baby squirrel, as if hunting it. I went outside, the crows flew to a branch of the tree, and the squirrel froze. So I picked up a large rock, and making certain to aim in the opposite direction...
