What personal belongings do you hold most dear?

Good morning

I would have to say photographs and letters , I for got to say with yesterday’s daily prompt that this was the one thing I collect. They are memories.

Memories of my kids growing up, there little handwriting , little notes the cards they have sent me over the years, I still have all the little poems I wrote to my hubby when we first met , the cards he brought for birthdays anniversaries.

I am not a very materialistic type of person it’s the small things that capture your heart , bring a happy tear to your eye.

Photos equally as important to me. Because when your memory fades of people you love times you spent together and when they are no longer here you have them to jog your memories. I love to collect memories with my family and friends.

I think though that having Huntington’s disease in our family makes capturing those memories on camera all the more important , it’s hard watching someone going through Huntington’s and slowly they change there personality just becoming locked in,

I remember my aunty June just before she was diagnosed sitting in her living room and looking through photographs with her her long term memory was great she could tell us where the picture was taking who was in it. One of the last memories before she went into a specialist care home

So that’s something I have always thought about if one day my memory fades I will have photos to help keep my brain from forgetting

Hope you have a lovely day

Much love Faye ❤️😁

Do you have any collections?

Good morning, personally I am not a collector but my hubby and kids are over the years I kinda got involved in my kids collections ,

Pokemon. We still have those, Yu-Gi-Oh , magic cards. We have superman collections batman , Frogs, pop figures, Niki’s new collection is monster high dolls.

Obviously we have a collection of gaming from Nintendo to some retro ones.

If I was to say I collected anything probably would be inspirational quotes have them on the walls in many rooms although I haven’t brought any for a while.

My hubby has massive collection of records, cds, and all things DJ probably some rare ones somewhere in his collection.

He also collects useable things tools screws in every size or anything he might need one day but really should be thrown away. Believe me i tried to get rid of something’s and they always end up going through what I sort out and put them back agian

We cannot for get the collection of shoes boots coats and wigs , maybe I have a collection of party stuff and candles too.

That’s it for now though it kind of changed through the years and amounts to taking up a whole heap of space we really don’t have

School run time hope you have a fab day

Much love Faye xx

What is the legacy you want to leave behind?

It’s really quite simple , Kindness , care, love and the Big One Independence.

Having kids on spectrum taught me that Independence , resilience and Self acceptance is a great legacy to leave behind. Part of that Independence is loving thier own life having Jobs and families of their own making their own way in the world,

As parents our time is limited we can’t be their forever we can just give them the strength to carry on their own lives.

Make their own choices , mistakes , and achieving thier goals in their own time.

The love and care side of things well my book was published so that will always be around as a reminder of how much I love and care for them.

Much Love Faye xx have a great day😁❤️
