Reuben's Retreat

Reuben’s Retreat was founded on the 23rd August 2012 in memory of a very precious little boy, Reuben Michael Graham who sadly passed away in his Mummy’s loving arms on 21st August 2012, aged 23 months. Reuben’s Retreat’s primary goal is to create a sanctuary in Glossop, Derbyshire that will be a home-from-home for families coping with the serious illness of a child, providing respite breaks and the chance to build happy memories.

I was ok until Ellie popped up on “shuffle play” via Spotify

How long will I love you
As long as stars are above you
And longer if I can
How long will I need you
As long as the seasons need to
Follow their plan
How long will I be with you
As long as the sea is bound to
Wash up on the sand

I’m on “toys” now ......

I smiled when taking his cot down, as I spotted his teeth marks in the wood. Cheeky chops.

Our lovely Susan is going to make me a coat hanger for his coat and I’ve bought a beautiful coat hook with angel wings on it. I’m going to hang it up in the heart 💙 of our new home.

Thank you for helping me today, Daddy, Isaac & Reuben

Thank you for your lovely messages of love 💖 and Support xxxx

That has to be one of the hardest, toughest, most challenging, exhausting and massively successful weeks on record.
A week that will stay with us all for a long time.

Suffice to say that on the way in to work this morning, Reuben had many thank you’s to send, say and share ..... you know who you are.

Tomorrow I/we embark on a new emotive challenge. It is the day I set aside to pack up Reuben’s bedroom. His pyjamas still on his cot and clothes still hanging in his wardrobe.

In 3 weeks time we begin a new chapter in our family life as we move house.

Thank you for today lovely Elaine, for sharing your love and Support as we embark on our move adventure. Knowing first hand how this feels.

I think Reuben’s Plan is to keep Mummy busy ..... ?!?!! 😳 seriously Reuben, I have more than enough on my to do list ... 📝
But thank you for sending beautiful gifts along the way. Our week has been stuffed full of love, opportunities and wonderful hearts 💕
