Do you love enough?

“225,000 people will develop dementia this year alone and that number is only going to rise. So the question we have to ask ourselves is ‘do you give enough of yourself everyday to those you love to give them the strength, patience and love to care for you through the bad years’. Mum obviously did for Dad.”
It was a poignant question that Bambi asked during our tribute to Mum today….and one I will vow to remind myself of daily. 
Mum showed us to love. To love unconditionally…. Consistently…. Unfailingly… 
The evidence was present today. We were overwhelmed with the number of people who came to show their respects and share memories of a lively, feisty, beautiful, elegant lady… 
The evidence has been in the piles of heartfelt letters and cards and the steady stream of emails.
The evidence was visible as we stood solid as the remaining family and next generation in honour and for the love of a wonderful Mum, Granny and wife.
 (Well almost… Spot the 4th grandchild – just as stubborn as his granny – won’t do as he is told!)
