RIP mamá Thank you! for everything what you did for me and my sisters... I will always love you 💖🎊🎉🙏🏻🎂
Самая добрая, нежная, заботливая, милая, красивая, прекрасная наша бабушка!!! Душевно поздравляем тебя с очередным Днем Рождения!! Мы хотим, чтобы ты знала, как много значишь для нас.
Несмотря на то, что ты не молодеешь, ты все равно прекрасна своей душевной добротой, своей душевной красотой! Твои натруженные руки самые заботливые в мире: других таких нет.
Ты самый добрый и самый светлый человек: бабушка — ты наш Ангел-Хранитель! Ты защищаешь нас от невзгод, помогаешь учиться жизни,
отдаёшь нам все самое лучшее: твоя любовь — наша награда. Спасибо тебе, дорогая бабушка, за то, что ты есть у нас.Мы тебя очень сильно любим!!! Здоровья и счастья тебе!
"Non cento, fino a centoun anno voglio vivere! Ma poi lassù decide lui e taaccc, sei secco mecco", dicevi convinta, la voce squillante, il sorriso spalancato su quelle lentiggini rimaste aggrappate al tuo volto a qualsiasi età, per noi nipoti fonte di forza perchè da piccolini a scuola ci guardavano strano. Non ti è mai interessato cosa volessero e facessero gli altri, tu ti occupavi di ciò che volevi tu, come la patente presa di nascosto in Africa con l'aiutante di casa che tremava ad ogni curva, o quando hai tenuto tra le braccia il figlio di sua moglie, perchè non aveva latte, in barba alle convenzioni che ti avrebbero voluta austera e distante da chi aveva la pelle di un colore diverso, nutrendolo come fosse tuo. Cavallerizza della vita, aria di solare ribellione che abbiamo respirato, cuore pulsante di un amore che anche per noi abbiamo sognato, al profumo di curry e mappamondo. Ci manchi. Buon 99 mo compleanno nonna Lucy, la nostra stella più luminosa che ha sempre mantenuto lo sguardo di questa splendida foto. #donne#donnespeciali#nonna#impronte#stella#ricordi#radici#origins#famiglia#familyfirst#familylife#grandmother#myispiration#personespeciali#paroleinmovimento#andmuchmore

Living life in the tiny details...
Have you ever lost track of time when cleaning a cluttered space? What was supposed to take you ten minutes costs you over an hour of reminiscing at things found that were thought lost. I do this ALL of the time!
Today I thought I would share one of the treasures I found with you.
This was my mother’s necklace, gifted to her by her parents. If you swipe to the next photo you will see a picture of my mom when she was young with my grandmother. This necklace always brings a smile to my face in the way it represents time as an abstract concept. Time is one of those funny things that’s always constantly moving, but is somehow also always seeming to standstill through our memories.
I have always wanted to place a photo of my mother and me in this locket, and now I desire to put a picture of me and my girls in here as well. My grandmother reminded me that we “don’t remove old photos, we just layer the new ones on.” Now isn’t that a loaded statement? We all have memories of the past, memories that are at a standstill that will never change or move... but we are constantly creating new memories to layer atop the old ones. These memories too will never change or get altered. Life is made in the tiny details of layered memories.

"Because you are women, people will force their thinking on you, their boundaries on you. They will tell you how to dress, how to behave, who you can meet and where you can go. Don't live in the shadows of people's judgement. Make your own choices in the light of your own wisdom." - Amitabh Bachchan⠀
"Have regular hours for work and play; make each day both useful and pleasant, and prove that you understand the worth of time by employing it well. Then youth will be delightful, old age will bring few regrets, and life will become a beautiful success." - Louisa May Alcott⠀
"It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see." - Henry David Thoreau⠀

This fantastic woman and world's best grandmother passed away quietly in her sleep last night.
She has accomplished and done more than most people could ever dream of!
She started her own cosmetic shop in the 60'ies and was the head of many organizations.
She was way ahead of her time and traveled to more countries than most travelers have ever done! From Greenland to the Virgin Islands. Through the trans-siberian railroad all across Russia and into the Asian countries.
She fostered kids while her husband pressed illegal anti-nazi newspapers during world War 2.
Her husband died over 28 years ago, and she has lived through the death of two of her own children!
She has seen my sister get married at the crown prince of Denmark's castle in Fredensborg where she grew up 94 years ago!
She was a real entrepreneur, adventurer and enjoyer of life, and it's not without tears that I say that she has been the inspiration and support to many decisions and things in my life.
But these tears I shed are not tears of sadness. Every tear that rolls down my cheek represents a memory. Memories she has given me. Memories of happiness and wisdom. She has had a fantastic, long and interesting life, way better than many ever get the chance to have. She was empowering and independent, and a real visionary.
Rest in peace Karla Paulsen, I will forever honor your memory ❤️❤️❤️
On the way home we visited my nan (my grandmother) in Heywood. Giving her a hug for the first time in almost two years and finally introducing Jasi to her was long awaited.
Now we only have a bit more than 100km and three days to go to our big FINALE🙌🏻 Can’t believe it!
