Samhain Blessings

Samhain (Halloween) is the time of the year when we remember those loved ones who have crossed over to the Otherworld. As a Pagan I grieve for those lost loved ones but also remember that this is just a part of the great cycle of life, death and rebirth.
Over the years there have been many members of my extended family, friends and neighbours who have made the crossing from this life to the next and today I remember and honour them all, especially my Mum and Dad:This pic was taken on a day trip to the seaside, when they were both in good health, and is one of my favourites and is how I always want to remember them.

What a lovely photo of your parents :) I've got a lovely one of mine, that I gave to Mam when Dad died suddenly 2 yrs ago, it was taken several years ago, but they are so happy in it, it's my favorite :)
