Crying a little myself here..it's so very lovely and for me of course the combination of being able to picture your Mum's homeland with the words from the Welsh poet? It's going to stay with me all day. Especially as I'm heading down the road that direction today. I'll be thinking of you!

Deb @ PaperTurtle

Oh, Alexa, where do I even begin! You can imagine how touched I am that you have found something so precious that your mother had left behind. How lovely that you thought to check every last pocket and were able to find these beautiful pieces - just as it was meant to be, I'm certain! As I struggle with the same emotions over my dear departed mom, the sentiment in your mother's handwriting really touched me and brought forth tears. It's absolutely perfect, every bit of this post. Thank you for sharing such a lovely piece with us, Alexa!

Ladkyis

She knew you were needing something, or perhaps your Dad was needing a sign from her. They always know and respond, not usually in a way we expect.

The Dylan Thomas piece just takes my breath away. Hugs to you and thank you for sharing,

Jennie-Wren

Oh Alexa that is a guft indeed - I do hope you don't mind - but I wish to keep both of those lovely quotes - especially the Dylan Thomas, I am in tears here, but I feel somehow that these words are something I must hold onto. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing such a lovely moving story. J x

She meant for you to find them, I just know it. My mom is gone almost two years now and seeing her handwriting is more heart wrenching sometimes than seeing her picture xo
