During times of stress such as dealing with the death of a close family member, remember to ensure you look after yourself.
I posted on Facebook today a really good infographic which gives some activities that you could do to help with your selfcare, if you haven’t had a chance to have a look do so now 🙂
So what is your self-care activity today? I think I am going to snuggle down with Murphi on the sofa with a good book.
Now more than ever we need to ensure we have the resilience to move forward, I often find myself sitting looking at the window, wondering what my father would have made of this whole pandemic. I think he was the type of person who would have rallied round his family and made sure they were OK. Which is what I have been doing for my family and friends. Its why I am on the Celebrant Journey I now find myself on.
Since finding my “purpose”, I find myself reading, understanding and enjoying the reading of poems. It was over my lunch, today  that whilst reading the Poem called “I felt an angel” by an unknown author that I heard the sad news of the passing of HRH, Prince Philip. It is a shame that this poem is not attributed to anyone as I feel it is a gift.
It tells us to never overlook the presence of a deceased loved one – the angel as described. Even though our loved ones are not with us physically they always remain with in spirt.
I would like to share this with you now.
I felt an angel near today, though one I could not see
I felt an angel oh so close, sent to comfort me
I felt an angel’s kiss, soft upon my cheek
And oh, without a single word of caring did it speak
I felt an angel’s loving touch, soft upon my heart
And with that touch, I felt the pain and hurt within depart
I felt an angel’s tepid tears, fall softly next to mine
And knew that as those tears did dry a new day would be mine
I felt an angel’s silken wings enfold me with pure love
And felt a strength within me grow, a strength sent from above
I felt an angel oh so close, though one I could not see
I felt an angel near today, sent to comfort me.
Even if you don’t believe in an afterlife, you have to agree (or maybe you don’t) that this is a beautiful poem.
My sympathy and warm wishes go out to all the royal family and anyone who feels this loss deeply.
Thank you for reading, until next time
