To Sylvia

Welcome to week ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTY-NINE of Saturday Centus.  

                                                Well, this is a picture WITH words.

                                                             Ten words to be exact.

                                                                  Another picture?

 The prompt this week:   Write 110 words about the picture above (ISN'T THAT TRICKY?  HA!)

Number of words:  No more than 110 total
Style of writing: Any
Additional Pictures: Any 

As I write these 110 words I am distracted by a James Bond film , diamonds are forever and the fact that a few miles away my dear God Mother is in the final hours of her life.
Maybe when I go and sit by her bed later I will ask her the question How do you like to go up in a swing?
I imagine when she was a little girl she might have swung on an old rickety swing , she would then have taken her own children to the park in Ongar and watched them for hours going back and forth. 
With no grandchildren to watch she spent time watching my children asking to go higher.
She will be my Diamond for ever.

I have not counted these words it just seems to be the right amount to say what I wanted to say .

Please link up to other bloggers and see what they have come up up with on Jenny's blog.

This and the post before are lovely tributes to your God-mother. I'm visiting from Jenny's blog. Love the layout of your blog. It feels very comfortable. That is a wonderful question and picture in your mind of her swinging high.


Oh no Tracy.

I'm so sorry to read about your Godmother here.

Please accept my prayers of condolence.

I'm hoping you have found peace.

What a difficult year you are having, my dear friend.

I'm sorry.
