As we go through this painful journey together we share, cry, scream and shout but we never judge, we know that there is always someone to listen. We always remember our precious children who will never be forgotten and will live on forever in our hearts.

The tribute to him in full

shabbs Sun 17-Aug-14 12:09:59

Just been looking through the tributes for Robin Williams.....the one that stood out more than any is a quote from the film 'Jack' that he starred in. It has taken my breath away...............

These words from "Jack" now seem more poignant than ever: "Please, don't worry so much. Because in the end, none of us have very long on this Earth. Life is fleeting. And if you're ever distressed, cast your eyes to the summer sky when the stars are strung across the velvety night. And when a shooting star streaks through the blackness, turning night into day... make a wish and think of me. Make your life spectacular. I know I did."

Mias, I know. I wonder if we had lived closer to the hospital, might they have revived her on time? Probably not but we don't know..

Thanks for your words, shabba and chip. And yes, we did get a holiday with Mia, you are quite right to remind me of all the good memories we DO have. But something is not quite right with the world when the first thing you do when you arrive somewhere is look for the hospital and the emergency services... sad

Oh I know how you feel about the holiday thing Mias. Our first holiday without Matt was in Teneriffe....just me, DH and Danny. The sun shone brightly and we loved the rest...BUT the first time the hotel had a 'Kids Disco' I had to run out of the room. All those bright eyed, suntanned little kids enjoying the disco and dancing to all the songs. Matt should have been doing that as well - in fact he would have been the first up on the dance floor!!

New thread

Oh Mias, that must be so hard. And I know this probably won't be a huge comfort but you did have a holiday with Mia and you have those memories to hold on to. We never got to have one with Sylvie-Rose.

MiaAlexandrasmummy Tue 23-Jul-13 09:21:51

shabba please, go ahead! grinWe are in Mallorca at the moment, a sunny holiday which is lovely, but which evokes so many memories of a similar trip with Mia. Bittersweet.

Has anybody got any objections to me starting a new thread? Dont mind at all if someone else really fancies doing one. Just shout up what you think and I wont be offended at all whatever the 'verdict' smile

Shabba there are days that pass without notice (like a car journey) - please don't feel guilty.

Sorry to be self-indulgent, but I am in unreasonable tears & don't know where else to 'park' this. It has just been announced that Kate M has had a little boy, which is brilliant news. I can't help but think of the birth of my lovely DS2, who we thought wouldn't survive beyond 5 at best (& is currently bathing DS4 & is a lively, wonderful, almost 17) & DS3, who arrived in the world with a bang, & who we never thought we would lose sad None of us know, do we?

Congratulations, Kate and William: hold him tight xx

chipmonkey Mon 22-Jul-13 12:13:34

shabba, I think the fabulous weather makes us all go around half-zonked! I actually forgot my dsis' birthday last week. I am not great with birthdays but only just remembered in time to send her a message. Still haven't got her a pressie!

shabbatheGreek Mon 22-Jul-13 07:45:37

Yes I do think of him every day Lavandes - you are right! Just realised that nobody in the entire family remembered. My lovely SIL always sends me a text or rings on the important dates but she didn't do that either.....and, as for my amazing Mum.....she rang me about 100 times to ask what date it was - part of me is glad she doesn't remember that horrible day xxx

lavandes Mon 22-Jul-13 07:34:59

Morning ladies x

You remember your precious boy every day Shabs, the days pass so quickly it is easy to have no idea what the date is, don't feel guilty xx

It looks like it will be cooler today thank god. I haven't been able to function, will get some housework done today, grandsons coming at weekend. xx

shabbatheGreek Mon 22-Jul-13 06:51:04

blush yesterday was Gareths 31st 'remember day.' I spent the day feeling really fed up and sad but couldn't figure out why. I forgot it was the anniversary! Forgive me little lad. I dont know if that was a good or bad thing.....but its the first time I have ever forgotten xxx

Morning smile . Just sat looking at the morning sunshine while enjoying a cup of tea. We had a proper full on, earth-shaking thunderstorm around midnight and everything's all fresh now.

shabbatheGreek Mon 22-Jul-13 06:46:20

Very, very quiet on here - hope you are all enjoying this weather and that everybody is OK xx Morning girls xx

Morning girls - bit cooler here this morning - thank God!!!

chipmonkey Fri 19-Jul-13 11:12:51

That is so true, Mias. although you are better than me, I think I would have wanted to thump them!

MiaAlexandrasmummy Fri 19-Jul-13 10:24:12

;(((chip))) hmmyou were very brave reading that out loud to ds3.

Thank you everyone for your kind words about the damage to Mia's Wood. We are more annoyed than anything - you can't make stupid people better, but we can buy a new gate, so in an odd way, I feel sorry for them...

I have been reading the Anne of Green Gables books to ds3. We are on Anne's House of Dreams and Anne just gave birth to her baby, Joyce, who died at one day old. Ds3 said "Your voice is changing" and I said it was so sad and he said "But it's only a story" and I told him it was bringing back memories. But LM Montgomery lost a child in infancy and she totally gets it, right to the point where Marilla tells her Joyce is better off in Heaven and Anne cries "I can't believe that! I read all those books as a child and it's only now I can see the pain in them.

Mias So sorry to hear about the damage done to Mia's Wood. One of our neighbour's dogs dug underneath the fountain we built for our son & I was numb for a while with despair - a really unexpected reaction for me. We rebuilt the broken part though & it is now more lovely than before (imo). The people who did this to Mia's Wood obviously have unkind souls; what a way to live your life sad
