  • Birthday Pearls

    Mama's Birthday was this week. Her dementia was in force until I showed her the "birthday tiara". She has such a reverence and love of pearls.

    Her Hospice team and the activities coordinator really wanted to make it special. They love her where she is. The aides and techs during shift change came and serenaded her. We presented her with her chocolate cake. Then showed her the tiara... She suddenly quipped (quoting here) "Oh my a tiara for my birthday! A tiara just for me! LOOK IT HAS REAL PEARLS!" She was over the moon happy. She even smiled! Snagged this photo of her wearing her tiara.

    Found "poor mans replica of Princess Diana's Lover's Knot tiara (one of her favorites because pearls). Swapped out the plastic teardrop shaped "pearls" for beading quality roundish pearls just for her. She was so cute, feeling like a queen in her tiara, as it should be. Then she asked me to take it home and keep it safe so it didn't "wander off".

    She was so adorable and had a great time.

          Marvelous, Ash! Pearls are a wonderful lift and solace. My sister always knows when I’m handling pearls. She says my voice calms, and becomes meditative. I hope it’s the same for you.

            She looks so happy! My mom had dementia as well, and loved to wear her (imitation) pearls every day.

                      Oh, Ash. Been there. Your mother's joy in her birthday and pearls broke through dementia because of your love for her and hers for you. Dementia can't hold love back. The last words my mother spoke, after many many many months of being non-verbal in a care giving environment were words of advice for her granddaughter, who was 8 months pregnant at the time. We hadn't even been sure she understood that news, except for a tear that trickled down her cheek ... until months later, when the pregnancy advice stuttered out Blessings to you and your mother, Ash.

                        Hi Cathy,

                        Mama loves her pearly bling. Just wanted to celebrate a precious moment with everyone here. Thank you everyone for letting me. Pearls bring their magic with them for those whose hearts are open.

                        Much love,
