Erin's Journals

Just a thought… I know for certain that we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves an indelible imprint in our memories. We find comfort in knowing that our lives have been enriched by having shared their love. [Leo Buscaglia]

I hope that you had a gentle weekend and I thank you for coming by today. Although you’re here because you prefer the written form of this journal, I will ask you to click either this YouTube link (to which you can subscribe so you don’t miss a video journal Mondays and Thursdays) or via Facebook to watch a video that our daughter-in-law Brooke did with me back in mid-September.

We were staying together, our little family, at a house in Nanoose Bay, near Parksville and Nanaimo here on Vancouver Island. In Part 1 of our chat we had fun as she quizzed me on modern terminology on the internet (I failed miserably and mirthfully) but then I thought, let’s keep talking. So we did – about her stepping into the role of Colin’s mom and taking on, not just a place in their home and lives, but a spirit who made herself known in the house as well.

I think you’ll enjoy this video, as we also had some pretty charming visitors (thanks, Mother Nature!) while we were shooting. So have fun with this and I’ll be back with you here on Thursday.
