One of the bubblers, Karen Hull……had a great photo of Licorice Allsorts candies up recently, and I haven’t had them since I left England 60 years ago!
So today I went to a store called World Market.. and they they were.. but not from England.. from New Zealand.
They were slightly different in taste and texture to what I remember, but they brought back memories…
I immediately thought of my mother, Hetty , whom I never knew …story here
I dedicate this to all people who have lost their mothers early in life.. or never knew them.

It was very emotional for me, shooting this….so here is a piece of my heart, that I share with you.

I am originally from Great Britain, and I live in San Diego with my 5 cats.

    What an awesome tribute to your mother and isn’t it funny how a simple thing as candy can bring so many wonderful memories! But also not so good memories! I read the story of your mother and so sorry for you! She was a beautiful women that died trying to find you, heartwarming and heartbreaking just the same! Im happy she was able to wrap her arms around you to let you know even in her tragedy she still loved you deeply! Thanks for sharing and the story of your mother is a wonderful write even tho sad!

  • Thank you for taking the time to read, and then comment so beautifully., with feeling.. much gratitude!!….♥
    Some things we never quite get over.. I still get tears in my eyes about her, even now as I approach age 70…..
