beginnings and endings

This is me
and my granddaugther EVA
born May - 24 - 2011

a new life
and we all celebrated
her coming in our lifes

We also already celebrated
her FIRST birthday
and so much happened
in her first year
We are getting to
know her
more and more and more

How wonderful
it is
each and every person
is so very much
his or her OWN/SELF


my 6 years younger sister
is in the Hospitium now
and she will have to say
to her life soon

At first
when we heard
the bad/sad news
we were all so
very very sad
it was like
a black book
was given
to me

and than
as time went by
there was a lot
of talking
about what happened
and about her
and lots of memories
from all directions
like beautiful
colourful pictures
to collect
in the black book
that was given to me

my children
also dealing with the grieve
of loosing their aunt soon ,
have wonderful
they shared with me
my sisters life
the life she lived
the life we shared as sisters
all is coming
into the book
of her life again
of course
it's sad she will not be
much sooner
than we thought and expected
that's life too

We never now
but we do know
life is a very special gift
worth celebrating
at the beginning
but also at the end

  1. Beautifully said my dear. When all is said and DONE, words DO tell the story of a life well-lived, and well-died. YES. My mother died with more courage than ANYONE in my family imagined she would. I was and still am, so very proud of how she left me.....

    YOU are a writer. NO DOUBTS MY DEAR....YOU are a writer. ENJOY this. Enjoy your studio, take in every thing you see, hear and feel. Then do YOUR magic.

    I truly believe in the phrase:

    "An intellectual says a simple thing in a hard way. An artist says a hard thing in a simple way." - Charles Bukowski (off from PINTEREST!)

    The truth must shine, and it glows best with unpretentious language. YOU have the gift.

    I send you HUGS and LOVE. Look at little Eva...she is so BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!Anita

  2. Wat een ontzettend positieve manier om deze moeilijke tijd door te gaan...ik heb bewondering voor je. Maak mooie herinneringen en geniet van elk moment samen. Lieve groet

  3. Oh is a gift my friend...sending you and your family lots of love during this difficult time.xoxo
