Half Way Round the World

In case you didn't realise, I usually live in Australia... but this post is coming from New Brunswick Canada. We had a very "hurried" flight over but the wonderful news is that hubby got to see and sit with his Mum again. She is very weak but her first words to him were ..."Oh hi Rick...." and later, in a very special moment they shared, she said that she didn't think she would get to see him again... but she did ... and that's wonderful for them both!
"Thank You" to all my friends who knew that we had received bad news and had sent their good wishes and prayers.  It was really appreciated.

Hugs  Cheryll

My DH and I made this same trip just before last Christmas to see his dad and DH was fortunate to have his dad's last smile and brief hello. So moving. I'm glad you made it to New Brunswick to see your DH's mother. I hope the rest of the journey is peaceful and loving. Take care.
