“I was struggling to live with the grief I was experiencing over the loss of my beloved sister and, like many women, I simply had to keep going with the day to day and hold a family and household together. To be given a break for a day with women giving their time and energy so generously to others; to receive pampering, care and attention was truly a healing experience.”
One of our nominees, who was nearing 90 years young, had come along to one of our Wellness days. Her husband had just passed and she was very down as they had been together since they were 14 years old. They had worked together and brought up two beautiful sons, they had done everything together. After her day with Feeling Fab, her sons rang me, both of them, at different times.
They both couldn’t explain the change in their Mum; “she was almost our mum back again, humming her and Dad’s favourite song again” (which they both used to hum together on a daily basis). Apparently, this lady had decided that week she was going to take an overdose of pills to join her beloved husband, but because of the Feeling Fab Wellness day that she attended, she had re-ignitied a new lease of life. She knew that her husband had made it happen with her going to this kind day of giving to others. She actually was on the waiting list to come as the day was full, but another of the ladies couldn’t come at the last minute and so she was called that morning to come along. She knew it was her husband telling her to carry on. Her sons just cried so many tears and couldn’t stop thanking me ❤️❤️. She had even written them both farewell letters.
