It all began in the summer of 2012. I was devastatingly awarded with a dire 2 month terminal prognosis and was even denied all further medical care aside from palliative care at VGH.
During that course of time, everything around me started to change. I knew what my heart wanted and that was THE CHANCE to pull my socks up and be that unstoppable force. I was stunned to see that version of myself - Courageous and Determined.
My babies were so young and full of life- my youngest was just 2 tiny years old, while my oldest Barley was just 5.
My heart was in pieces to know that they would be too young to come to remember how much I truly and utterly adored every, tiny thing about them. Seeing them smile still causes goosebumps and I’m in awe of it.
To convey my fierce and unconditional love, I made recordings and colourful scrapbooks for them to tell them the story of my life, in my own words. Penning my feelings down, wasn’t the easiest but I enjoyed every bit of it.
How lucky I am to have survived, despite every expectation to do so, to still “get” to be by their side today to tell them just how much I truly love every bit of their hearts, minds and souls?
But I ask you, how will you design your scrapbook one day?
Which are those unforgettable and joyous memories that you would want to mention? Would you penn down all their mischievous events with tons of pictures too?
If you haven’t given a thought about it, NOW IS THE MOMENT. Capture and savour all the moments along the way, both big and small, to savour the joy and to tell your story just as you want it told! Imagine having a stock of beautiful memories in one place, wouldn’t you love it?
