The rhythm of a simple home


The first summer my mum and I moved into our apartments…mine on the second floor and hers on the first…we walked past a friend’s little shop and admired a blue and white striped chair in the window. Three or four times a week we would walk past and she would tell me how much she loved the chair. One day I came home from work and she told me that she had purchased it. She loved it. My sister, brother, and I would laugh because if one of us happened to be nibbling on a little something while we were sitting on it or if we happened to curl up a bit and put our feet on it, mum would give us the evil eye until we either sat up straight or stopped eating.

Since she passed away last month I have inherited the chair and it sits in my living room just above the very spot where it sat in her house.

  2. The chair is lovely, she had very good taste.. I bet if she knew where you have placed it, she would be so pleased.

  4. what a beautiful legacy that you literally get to see and enjoy. may these sweet memories give you comfort and bring a bit of a smile, friend ...

  5. how wonderful that you can keep the chair and cherish the memories of her sitting in it. God's grace to you!

  6. I'm so sorry to hear your beloved Mom passed away. The chair is a special
    piece of furniture that reminds you of her, and you will always have all
    the wonderful memories of the times you spent together. Thinking of you
    tonight, and may God comfort you during this time of sorrow.
