My Dad, Generosity and Kaffir Lily

17 Dec

1  It is ten years today since my lovely Dad died and, of course, he still leaves a hole in my life. This morning in our newspaper was a lovely piece by Lindy West about losing her Dad three years ago. I found it heart warming. Click on the red link to read it.

2   In the midst of some horrific news this week comes a beautiful reminder on the inherent goodness and humanity of people. I loved this story of a student in Preston who slept rough herself to repay a homeless man’s kindness to her. Another heart-warming story for you.

3   We have some colour in the garden as the Kaffir Lilies begin their winter show.

      You are so right, Uru. It makes us glad for what we have and more aware, perhaps, of what we could be doing.
      All the best to you this Christmas. I find it hard to think of Christmas in the summertime! Enjoy your beautiful mid-summer weather! 🙂

    Neeks, sent me this when my father passed away. Its is an interesting site. Thought you might find it interesting as I did. Doesn’t help the void though but feeling the hole is far far far better than feeling nothing I think.

    Hard to imagine something growing outside for me this time of the year. I’ve never heard of a Kaffir Lily.
