A piece of me: Memories of Marie

23 Aug

So to date I haven’t really spoken about myself as such, but rather my expat journey.

Today I would like to get personal!

You know those times when your phone rings or a text comes through and it is normally – do you want to grap a coffee? Are you free on Friday to catch up? Love and miss you.

Then the day comes when you get a text of the different kind-

“Marie has died peacefully. So sad Mum x”

It is then when your gut sinks, you have tears running down your face and you realize Australia is further away than you thought.

So with that said today I would like to dedicate my blog to a dear friend, family member- Marie.

Sadly Marie died earlier this week after losing her long battle to cancer.

Marie was an amazing person. She was kind and very loyal. Marie and Louis have been apart of my family for many years and has celebrated event with us- my 21st, we have shared morning teas together, lunches and she attended my wedding.

The last time I saw her was about a year ago, and I remember a lovely lunch together and that memory will live on. Marie gave me some lavender soap, often when I see lavender I think of her.

Life is so previous and Marie taught me to life to the fullest and to fight for what you believe in and to fight for life.

Today I want to remember Marie for the amazing women she was. I want to smell the lavender and remember the fun times together and to lastly remember, as my mum said

” life is short, so go out there and ring them bells”
