A PINK DAY




Last Tuesday ( January 21st.) was an important day in our house,
my daughter India 's 21st. birthday.

Sadly India was not physically present to celebrate with us.
Due to a brain tumour she is now dancing with the angels.
We held a special family dinner, in her honour.


India was known as the pink princess, so the table was 
themed with pinks.






                                         Pink lillies were her favourite flower, so I placed them in her
                                         grandmother's china cups.I know she would have smiled.


                                      A celebration cake filled with stawberries was the order of the day.

                                   After dinner we released several hot pink balloons, I'm sure
                                   she would have been pleased.

.  
                                 A good friend sent me this poem;
 

                            Those we love don't go away
                             They walk beside us everyday
                              Unseen, unheard, but always near
                              Still loved, still missed and very dear.



                          Beautiful words and oh so true.


A sad but beautiful day of both celebration and reflection.

  2. What a lovely thing to do. Beyond beautiful table, and I know you pleased her. My mother didn't survive her brain tumor either, and so I know just a little of what you experienced. Not so bad as the death of a daughter so young, though ... you are in my thoughts.
    And you look quite pretty in your polka dots!
