It's a Mother Daughter thing

Oh the irony...

In January I blogged about how my Dad's dog had eaten the one tree that I absolutely treasured; a chestnut tree planted by my Mother and I. (see post here) It was intended that one day it would be transplanted into the yard of my very own house.  That tree has now been destroyed and although it is quite rare for me to cry, I did.  It absolutely broke my heart.

Today, through a completely odd series of events I came across a video created by a Korean woman in memory of her Mother.  I cannot help but take it as a beautiful reminder of the memories I have with my own Mom and how completely ironic it is that the tree she used in this video was, out of all the possibilities, a chestnut tree. 

I hope that you enjoy it as much as I have.
