The Gift of Time
I took a month off from blogging and social media over Christmas,
And I embraced the gift of TIME.
My dear aunt Peggy was nearing the end of her TIME on this good Earth,
Thus I was able to spend precious quiet TIME by her bedside.
The last of a family of eleven,
She passed away peacefully, aged 94 years young on 16 January.
Peggy was a terrific baker, and her treacle scones and pancakes were legendary.
She had a wonderful memory, and could recount past events, long forgotten by many.
At her funeral, the priest said,
“When people like Peggy die, it is like the burning of a library.”
Brigid P. Gallagher is a retired natural medicines therapist, passionate organic gardener and author of “Watching the Daisies- Life lessons on the Importance of Slow,” a holistic memoir dedicated to the art of mindfulness and healing from a debilitating illness.
She lives in Donegal, Ireland – an area of outstanding natural beauty.
