              Thanks for sharing these quotes your mom treasured, Lady in Blue.
              When going through my moms belongings I found 2 journals of sorts. One had listed the death dates of relatives and all of her friends which I just now remembered I need to share with one of my brothers who has been doing all of our family genealogy. The other was recording of special events and times for her like the purchase of a new stove etc., and her travels back home to the island. Such a treasure for me to find.


              “Hope
              Smiles from the threshold of the year to come, Whispering, ‘it will be happier’. ”
              Alfred Tennyson

                Oh, Rosey, isn't it so bittersweet to come across these writings from our moms. There's something about seeing mom's handwriting that brings me up short, like she's present, a physical manifestation of her spirit. Mom had a collection of mini diaries as well; just as your mom did, writing about events. It was very hard to read because she was so depressed, and physically ill. When I'm ready, I'm going to type it all out and maybe write a story about her. What a precious discovery for you!

                      Its all about persistence, we must be more focused and driven than the negative circumstances.
