The Lilly Story
Now to tell you about a little miracle. Olly and Fred were questioning whether they were doing the right thing. They were so far away from their children and home and the future seemed so uncertain.
At the place where they had the land in Balangoda blessed and nailed a crucifix to a tree, they later found three white lilies growing. Lilies are not normally found anywhere in the area.
Mum, Dad and Aggie (my sister who died in 2005) loved these Lilies. Olly thought this was a sign. It could have been coincidence, but it boosted their spirits and helped them to have faith to keep going, knowing that they are not alone.
