As I’m writing this blog for you I am welled up with emotion.
Yesterday my parents arrived from Queensland for Christmas.
This will be a very full on time with my parents, both in their 80’s and Mum with Alzheimer’s.
I took the reigns off Dad this morning offering to shower Mum, my first time doing this mind you.
I cannot tell you why it was so emotional, but I was filled with an overwhelming sense of love, caring, sadness, happiness that I was doing this for her, but boy am I a mess!
The harsh reality of life, getting old, not appreciating the moment enough, always wanting more but realising so blatantly that what I have is already enough!
A few times this year we have come close to losing Mum, so to have her tiny frame naked before me totally exposed and vulnerable in my care has hit me like a bolt of lightning.
If you have had a year of hardship in any way, then like me, you will be looking at Christmas as a magical opportunity to remember or hold on tight to your loved ones.
Thank you to all of my readers, clients and students this year for taking an interest in what I do and supporting us each week on our posts with encouraging and supportive comments.
I hope you all have a fabulous Christmas and I look forward to styling many of you next year, engaging with you on the blog, or spending fun quality time with some of you in Vietnam.
