Keep Them Close

"Keep them close, Kathryn." These are some of the best words of advice my mother has given me. Having read tonight about a family suddenly losing it's youngest member, it has reminded me and many other parents not to take any of these precious moments for granted.
I learnt a valuable lesson very recently, when my Granny passed away. I kept saying to myself "I must pop in and see her tomorrow." I didn't pop in nearly as much as I wanted to but I always thought I could do it tomorrow. Sadly, my Granny ran out of tomorrows before I got to see her. I wont make that mistake again, definitely not with my beautiful boys. So, if nothing else, keep them close.

  1. I completely agree. Your mum has wise words indeed. The last time I spoke with my Gran before she passed away, was to tell her I loved her and that I would visit her on the Saturday. Sadly, my gran was rushed into hospital unexpectedly and passed away on 'the Saturday'. That makes me feel so sad but it also was a stark reminder of how precious my family and friends are. I hope you are ok and love to you & your family xxx the pic is ace!
