Nell: I know today is a difficult day for you.

Me: Yes, it is.

Nell: A year ago today we lost your lovely mother.

Me: Yes, we did.

Nell: And I know you think about her every day and miss her very much.

Me: Yes.

Nell: So remember what I told you about the Guardians. When we lose the ones we love they have not really gone. They become our Guardians and they watch over us.

Me: Yes.

Nell: So when things happen to make you smile like the sun coming out on a cloudy day, or the smile of a stranger when you are feeling low then know she is there.

Me: Yes.

Nell: She and I talked about this after we lost little Monty. Just before she became ill.

Me: Yes, you did. He was a lovely dog.

Nell: Yes. And she agreed that becoming a Guardian was a wonderful thing. She said when her time came she would be honoured to watch over you all and that is exactly what she is doing.

Me: But we didn’t know we would lose her so soon, Nell.

Nell: I know. But sometimes it is better that way.

Me: You are right. Sorry.

Nell: No need to be sorry. Not today.
