The task for Writing Real Life was to think of one change you would make. One thing. And what you hoped for.
A single change –
An enabling to go back in time – just once – the gift of fifty.
To make one stop and enact one change that would make a difference.
My mum – in that final week.
To spend more time chatting about nothing.
Just being there and enjoying her company before the cancer chewed up her last normal and spat it back out in all of our faces.
Everything else that’s happened in my life – let it stand .
I have managed to surf and submerge through the consequences – they have brought me to here.
But to go back and have that last nothing with mum.
The only change – it would not change the present – and yet – it would make all the difference.
This POST is part of a wider collection to show the journey that would eventually lead me to the cross of Jesus Christ, my personal redemption, and my journey of faith afterwards. If you would like to know more of my story, please click on my “About” page and take it from there.
Alternatively, you can visit the Media Links page and see a short visit done by BBC Radio Scotland for an interview I did there.
