Last weekend, I took a trip to Kew Gardens. I breathed in fresh air. I looked at autumn leaves falling around me. I felt more myself. 

I was walking through the Palm house by myself, calm, collected and just slightly sweaty. To the right of me, I saw what I thought was a bird. A bird in the Palm house? Well it had to be a rouge pigeon or something. I couldn't believe it when I looked into through palm trees - it was a Robin. There by itself, a bit like me just sitting calm, collected and I am sure a little sweaty. 

I have a personal connection to Kew Gardens. It's tough being there without my Grammy by my side. It used to be our place. Before i let her go, she promised me we would go there again. This is only the second time I have been there since she left me. It never gets any easier.

When I saw this Robin I almost burst into tears. 

There was a Robin that used to sit in my Grammy's garden. She used to take thousands of pictures everyday of the Robin and even spoke to it. Ever since she left, I have always said my Grammy become a Robin.

Standing in Kew, with this Robin by my side it was one of the most magical moments I have ever felt. My spine tingled. I was filled with happiness and sadness all at once. Was she there with me?

 The last few weeks have been tough on me.

  1. I am sure your Grammy was there with you. My mum's mum died when I was a little girl and my mum always says she is a robin now too, so whenever I see a robin I feel she is with me and you know what, I tend to see them when I need her most. So I believe in this kind of thing and I do believe your Grammy was there at Kew Gardens where she had so many happy times with you in life. Take comfort from it, it's a beautiful thing :)
