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.

As I wrote this yesterday, a butterfly landed right beside me and I watched it for a while .... beautiful #signs
They're never far away, we just cannot always see them .. and sometimes things happen that make us sad and we have no idea why or how we can survive it, and it's there we find our answers.

This is for all Mums everywhere.......

Today's a day to celebrate LOVE
Sometimes shrouded by "MISS"
A time to thank Mums past and present
To write cards signed with a kiss x
A Sunday to remember,
To sit in quiet time
To think of souls that stopped by
If only for a while ....
To spare a thought for those that hurt
And for whom today's a little sad
For those that realised their dreams
Whose hearts sing out quite glad
For Mummies across the land
Whose hopes were dashed and torn
For loved ones no longer here
A day to stop and mourn
We remember all Mummies
And the wonderful role they play
In shaping us to be who we are
On this Sunday and every day

Written with LOVE, MISS and HOPE in my heart

xxxx
Mummy
