Yesterday’s Carpe Diem Prompt was Buddha.
I’ve been missing from Carpe Diem for a few days whilst I come to terms with the passing of my Mother. I found myself unable to see past the fog that has descended in my mind to write a haiku myself. However, seeing the quote above reminded me that I have nothing but positive thoughts of my Mum and the love and laughter she brought into the lives of her family, friends as well as her patients and their families during her years as a Hospice Nurse.
If “all that we are is is the result of what we have thought” then what others think and feel about us is also a result of our thoughts. This implies that even in the depths of Mum’s dementia, her mind must have been full of love and laughter.
A mind full of love
Handed from Mother to Child
The Buddha smiling
