My neighbour Marian, has a small deck on the West side of her house, that overlooks Tunstall Bay. At night you can see stars out over the water, airplanes or satellites travel across the sky, and also lights glimmer on Vancouver Island, 26 miles away. The view is framed by big trees and is like a very large peep hole looking out over the water. Itâ€™s a nice place for friends to sit and chat. So we do.
Yesterday was the birthday of Marianâ€™s mom, June. Today would have been my mothers 82nd birthday. June died in 2006 and Alice in 2003, both were 75 when they died.
As we looked out at the vast view, framed like a picture, we told each other mom stories, reminiscing the way motherless daughter do.
Happy Birthday June and Alice!
Your daughters miss you!
