I remember before I delivered Zack, I insisted Rod go with him if they had to take him to the special care nursery or worse, transport him to ICU. I made Rod promise he would stay with Zack regardless. My one thought was I didn't want him to go through any of that alone or even worse die alone. Fortunately he was okay and his trip to the special care nursery was a short one, but can understand Hilda's grief at not being there with them when they died and why she envies Kate for having had that, despite how painful it would have been.

There is room in our hearts for many loving friends. MA and Hilda are now so closely linked by their shared loss,
grief and compassion that I feel they will stay friends for ever, no matter what life throws at them in the future.
More thought provoking quotes from the 'Little Prince' and another chapter
the writing of which draws us right into the office to share their love, and that lovely warming fire ! Thank you as ever Mary.

Quote:

You’ve taken your place beside Nell in my heart. Together, you shine the
light of your souls on me and give me stars to hold, that I may never again lose my way.


If MA entertained any doubts about her place in Hilda's affections, that sentence, and indeed the entire dedication must have dispelled them once and for all.  The relationship between the two of them is surely a very special one.  I love the way MA uses the text of The Little Prince as she endeavours to convince Hilda, yet again, that even though Nell is gone from her sight, her presence will remain with her until they are reunited in death as they were in life.  

I'm sure that Hilda will never forget this entire Christmas Day conversation - and neither will we.  Thank you, Mary, for allowing us to witness it.

Thank you Mary.  The ongoing prescence of a loved one can be reasuring, but can be scary as well.  Hilda and MA certainly know the heights and the depths.

What a wonderful way for this section to draw to a close Mary. It allows for more of their loving teasing, and gentle friendship. The way Hilda uses The Little Prince to show how much Kate has touched her heart, despite the harsh realities of the world that she is living in. And no, Kate will never be a substitute for Nell, that wouldn't be possible, but she is one that Hilda will be able to allow to walk through the pain with her.

I'm sure that Hilda will need the words that Kate spoke to her about how the empty shells mean nothing at some point in the future, and that both of the participants in this mother-daughter chat will benefit from the time spent together.

Thank you for sharing it with us Mary.
