Now what?

Grandma G’s funeral was beautiful and intimate; all four children who hadn’t been together for years were all there to bid their mother farewell. 

Now what for Mama G?  The world feels empty, a huge hole that cannot be filled by anybody else.  I mourned the death of my marriage for five years but now I realise nothing compares to the love of a mother.  I am not belittling the love of a father but there is something very special starting from the moment of conception and life growing in the womb.

I guess I will resume my shiny new life in Hong Kong.  A friend suggested I teach English at a university in the Mainland; that idea appeals to me rather than just doing a few hours tuition to kids here and there.  Life is so fleeting here one minute gone the next and I don’t feel I have ever reached my potential.

Watch this space …
