Mum + Dad

As I said in my previous post, I went over to Ireland to see my parents last weekend. Both are in their 80s and are now together in the same nursing home: Mum = bed/chair bound, Dad = wheelchair bound. Neither can walk but both remain pretty alert mentally, though Dad's Parkinson's is gradually taking its toll. What is lovely is that after having been through much trauma and suffering throughout their life together, they have each attained a level of inner peace which I think shines out from their faces. A God-given grace for which I am immensely grateful.

The photo was taken just after the Saturday evening Mass of Pentecost.
