Reflection or Reflection?

Hello ... How are you?

Today's prompt at Our Beautiful World is Reflection


Do go visit the Blog to see what my friends are sharing

Wen picked the prompt this week and it seems ironic ...Things have happened that have caused me to do some reflecting of my own but first up, here are my photos



I love this shot, it makes me feel calm, even though the day I took it, it is was not so calm ... It is the ideal place I would sit and just reflect on things in life


The simple sweet and beautiful things....


The warm and happy times
 

...The sun closing down a perfect day, reflecting a trail of gold


And the unexpected things that mystify and amaze, and sometimes throw you off balance...

I've not been blogging much except for DT work ... It's a time issue 
 A friend of mine is terminally ill and for reasons I won't go into her daughter has opted out of any involvement... 
I've been going in to see her daily in the hospice and as well as getting her out into the garden for short spells, it has been left to me to help her make big decisions... 
Don't get me wrong, I am only too happy that I can be there for her and do whatever I can to ease her mind and let her know she is not alone and she is loved...We are old friends, she trusts me, that means a lot and it's a big thing. But I need to get things right and it isn't always simple

So yes, I've been reflecting a lot on things, including our many years of friendship... and how blessed we are to know each other

Till soon my friends, take care

~ Ros ~

Beautiful water photo's Ros, you know how much I love the beach! Prayers for you and your friend, we don't always have an option to have children care about us. It seems they are so into themselves these days that we might as well not be around. I do understand how important being a friend and helping out is for her. You are blessed to have the opportunity to be that good friend that I know you are!Happy Sunday!Thanks for the beautiful photo's!

Such beautiful and thoughtful images. So very sorry you are going through a tough time at the moment and what a gorgeous friend you are to your very ill friend. Cherish the time together and she'll know she's loved by you and not alone. So very sad and a very stressful time for you x

Oh, that's rough. I'm so sorry about your friend, Ros. It surely does make you stop and think about what's important and worthwhile. Beautiful photographs. I think my favorites are the shore bird and the palm tree shadow. Take care.

I love the reflection pics Ros!! I understand about the time and emotional demands Ros, Im in that same boat right now too. Im sure it is special but difficult to be there for your friend when her family isn't. Seems life had some giant demands on many of us right now. Will be praying for you :)

Beautiful shots! Sorry to hear about your friend. But she has you now and that is a blessing in her time of great need.It is easy to be friendly when things are good and it is hardest when things are not so good and those who stay are true friends. You are that.
