Remember the little things…

Even though my mum has passed away, I still reflect on the little things she did for me as a child. I wrote this book for her 90th Birthday in the hope she would understand how much the little things she did for me did not go unnoticed.

      1. Mum (who a year ago was a strong independent 86 yo woman living happily on her own) went in for a brain operation to remove a benign tumor. Two failed operations later and an infection contracted in hospital has left her, sadly, no longer the mum I knew. It’s been a hard, long sad year but we are all slowly learning to accept how life is now. Perhaps I will download some of your pages, they look beautiful, but honestly Lexa, half the time I don’t know whether she’s with us or not.

      2. She is with you in another way. Our mum had dementia, I was a random person who visited her and lovingly gave her a manicure each week. Sometimes she would just squeeze my hand, her soul remembered me, I knew who she was and that’s all that mattered. Deep down that bond is still there. Look for the little signs. ❤


      3. Oh I do Lexa. I look for those signs and I see them. The way she squeezes my hand, the way she looks at me sometimes. I know she’s still in there, her beautiful soul is still the same and our bond will never really be broken. Thanks for your supportive words.


      4. I found by recording the memories healed much and it became a beautiful keepsake for your own children to know what she did for you and what you were like as a child.

      1. Hey Lexa, I didn’t actually answer your question, I was so gobsmacked that you were in Sale. Such a kind offer, probably easiest to post. Can you send me your email so I can send you my address details. Thanks so much Lexa.

      2. I’d love to meet you too Lexa but I won’t be back down there for a while. Mum’s home is in Sale but she’s here in Melbourne now, in a 24/7 facility where we can all visit her. I used to go home to Sale all the time to visit her on weekends but now I haven’t been for a while, eventually we’ll be selling the house down there. It’s sad but life unfortunately. Still can’t believe you’re there!


      3. Oh I understand Miriam, funny how you gravitate towards a place or person at times. Ok, send me your details via DM on FB Lexa Harpell and then I can post it to you. Cheers, Lexa 😀
