I wrote your name in the sky, but the wind blew it away.
I wrote your name on the sand, but the waves washed it away.
I wrote your name in my heart, and it stayed.
‘Vos’ is Latin for you.
Christmas Day 2015. It was early morning and we had gone to the beach as it was quite hot the night before. The sand was still warm and the water was a soothing coolness.
My husband, young son Nicky, and our big chocolate marshmallow Labrador, Barry, were playing on the beach.
That moment was perfect – the water was still, there was no breeze, you could feel the warmth of the day coming, and the quiet was so perceptible it was almost loud. Most importantly, I was with my biggest love, my family.
I thought at this simple beautiful moment, how perfect, how right, everything was.
