A red lei floats on still waters, while a waning moon shines down on it. Has this chain of flowers been cast adrift as a tribute to a lost soul? Or did its wearer lose their life in the ocean, leaving behind nothing but this garland? Flowers, too, by their very nature are transient, a beautiful blossom today, a withered stem tomorrow. And yet, while they bloom they are bright and colourful, reminding us of the beauty of life.
I shall be starting the day with another medical appointment, and a scan of the new life growing inside me. Is this a reminder to enjoy life as it is now, before another child comes to complicate and change things, even if in a good way? Already, I have had to stop carrying Big Boy, which is probably no bad thing. Still, I enjoyed the "cuddle" of carrying him downstairs each morning.
I am grateful for time to adapt to changing circumstances.
