To all our birth Mothers, Stepmothers, Grandmothers, and the oh so many women without an official title.  These are the women that love, support, mentor, teach, talk, really listen to us. They guide us and help us find our ways when we feel lost.  They celebrate with us when we succeed.  They see the best in us and push us to be better.  They teach us failure is to be expected.  They tell us not to be ashamed for trying, but this is how we learn to be better.  They help us find comfort in our broken hearts and loss by reminding us we could never hurt so bad without allowing ourselves to be loved so deeply, and what a gift this is as many people never experience pure love. 

To the Mothers of all ages and stages in our life teaching us all to be better and to be a mother figure to others, even when we feel ill equipped to do so.  Teaching us we can care for others within our families and society at large; to humans, pets, and our environment. 

To all the women who know what it is like to fall down. 

To all the women who know what it is like to be lifted and supported by another. 

To all the women who know the great gift it is to support another with your own Mother’s love.

May we treasure and bless these wonderful Women daily.

To my own Mother; I miss you every day and am so thankful for your love, support, and guidance. I feel your presence with me every day and do know how blessed I am for being a receiver of your great loving being. Thank you, Mom. I love you to the moon and back.

Flora Making Life Brighter & Happy for Others

My name is Giada Conte, I am 38. I am Italian, but I moved to California 3 years ago, where I live with my husband. No kids, no pets, no close relatives, just the two of us! I’ve been working for more than 15 years as a theatrical set designer and painter, extremely in love with my job, and with Arts in general. Then, one day in March 2020, all of a sudden, everything changed: theatres and live events closed their doors indefinitely, and I felt completely lost.

I have been trying somehow to adjust the new reality, of Covid 19, since the beginning of the lockdown and I committed myself to practicing positive-thinking exercises as a daily routine.

At least one happy word per day

I started focusing on all the privileges my life already had (and still has, more than ever): Family, Love, Energy, Colors, Memories, Freedom, Hope, Creativity… so I reached the 50th day, with the word ‘Joy’, the day I took my pencil and started drawing…

The day Flora came

She was a little whimsical character with the mission of making me smile. It worked! Initially, the idea was to write a children’s book about her, but then I just enjoyed so much spending time making art that I forgot about that plan. 4 months and 300+ drawings later, going through the shelter-in-place and the wildfires that forced me to stay safe inside, I still fill my days doing that, looking out the window, and dreaming through her eyes.

I thought that maybe Flora could have spread a bit of color and brightness to some other’s life too.

Hence, I’ve been posting daily illustrations on social media and I created her personal blog with free educational/inspirational contents, receiving hundreds of views and daily positive feedback. But what’s motivating me the most are some special heartwarming ‘Thank You’ messages I got from persons who have been living delicate moments and difficult situations, saying that my character just helped them lighten their days with a smile. Well, there are no words to express how I feel about this. I was creating art, in my little corner of the world, trying to make the best of my social isolation, and I ended up making a difference for some others, even if only for the time of a chuckle.

As a personal journey, Flora is about exploring everyday

She looks at her life in a new perspective, observing ordinary objects with a curious eye, discovering connections, finding Beauty in the little things, getting motivated and inspired even when the whole world is upside down.

After collecting materials to create activity sheets for kids, I recently made a series of Worksheets for Seniors, and that’s what brings me here. It’s a packet designed to encourage positive thoughts and memories, keeping them busy, with a little fun too!

Six Years Since Dementia Took My Mother

Feeling Lost and Privileged

Each Day, Each Year Feels Different Yet the Same…

The power of my emotions comes in waves. An ucontrolled storm that bubbles up unannounced with no warning signs of the deep waves of emotion that crash through my mind, body, heart and soul. And yet, with each crashing wave that feels it could rip my body apart, I remind myslef of how lucky I was to have a Mother I loved so deeply, Because without that great love, I would not be privledged to feel such great pain and loss. Nor would I have those oh so many wonderful joy filled moments that I got to experience and through memory get to replay as often as I wish.

Today I wanted To Honor Mom On The Anniversay Of Her Passing

Mom may you feel the love that bonds us to this day. May you continue to guide my work and expand Alzheimer’s Speaks to help others cope, break down stigmas and find new ways to support and eventually cure all demetias. Without your dementia, my journey to shift dementia care around the world would have never even started. Thank you for the gracious lessons you taught me.

Below are parts from an article I wrote for my first Mother’s Day without Mom.  It was a very healing moment writing about her. I feel it still stands true and maybe, just maybe it will help others on their own healing journey.  I hope  you enjoy it.

By Lori La Bey – copyright 2014

Lori La Bey of Alzheimer's Speaks & Senior Lifestyle Trends
Lori La Bey founder of Alzheimer’s Speaks

Through my mother’s thirty year journey with dementia she continued to guide and teach me; love me in ways I did not know where possible, especially in times of illness.  It’s now been 72 days since mom slipped into the heavens and joined my father. Although I can rationalize her journey on earth is over and she is now in a much better place, free of pain, fully mobile and mind intact; but I still struggle with the loss of you.

Today I Will Visit Her Grave Site With My Beautiful Daughter Danielle,

Who Loved Her Grandma So Very Much.

Going There Gives Me A Sense Of Peace.

The Cemetery, A Place Where I Can Honor Her,

Leave Roses And Balloons In Honor Of Our Relationship And

The Love We Had For One Another.

mom_grave_cropped_051114_mothers_day

Throughout My Life, My Mother Has Been My Logical And Loving Conscious.

Mom Was My Rock.

20young_fam

Mom was the one I could always depend on. She was not only my mother, but my best friend.  As my friend Lisa Hirsch titled her book, “My Mother My Hero”  pretty much sums it up!

Through tough times she was my guide and support.

On special occasions we celebrated together.

Mom Taught Me:

To look for the tiniest of things to be grateful for.

To hold a hand out to those in need.

To love deeply.

To consciously make a difference in my life and others.

To work hard and be responsible.

To understand my impact on others; realizing, appreciating and honoring the world is much larger than myself and that we are all interconnected.

To understand that to be a Mother one does not have to have their own child; but rather to be willing to adopt a child in mind, body, heart and soul.

To make a connection and difference in someone’s life, is to be a Mother.

gifts

Mom Showed Me How By The Way She Lived Her Own Life.

erin_sarah

Leading by example showing me a variety of ways to be a compassionate person.

How to listen to others, not just hear their words.

To look for nonverbal signs of what others truly want or need, when their words were lost or pride held them back.

To look past the everyday judgments and see the whole person standing before me.

memom

Through Illness Mom Taught Me:

To let go of control. To realize it is a mirage, a trap of guilt and pleasure.

To embrace the simplicity of life.

To smile and spread grace.

To love more deeply than I ever knew was possible.

To laugh hard and authentically to embed the moment into my soul.

To look for and create joy in all moments of life, no matter how difficult they are.

dan_me_mom_laughing

To talk openly and honestly with others acknowledging all emotions without embarrassment.

To understand we are all in this life together and that shame, guilt and denial shut us down. Realizing the only way to get past those crunching emotions is to be open, honest and proud you’ve recognized them and what has triggered them; allowing you to move through them. Past them. Over them.

To not only say, “I’m sorry” when wrong, but to change my behavior to avoid it from happening again.

To feel my fear, think of alternatives to remove it and to be brave enough to take action to reclaim the life I envision.

To follow my instincts even when they seem goofy or senseless.

To trust in a higher power than myself, knowing I’m never alone.

cross

To honor everyone’s beliefs.

To realize prestige, money and objects are just things.  They will not make you a better person; until you realize they can be powerful tools to expand your work for the greater good.

She taught me the importance of being person centered or what I like to call relationship based and what it truly means – which is how and why I created “Your Memory Chip.”  –  Are they Safe?, Are they Happy? Are The Painfree?

Through All These Lessons And More,

I Find I Still Want Her Back In This Physical World Where I Live.

Some days my heart aches so bad I think it will explode; or maybe, just maybe it will stop beating all together.  I logically believe and know in my heart mom is in a much better place. In heaven with my dad probably dancing and laughing with many friends and family who have also passed.

But Today, My Mind Wonders…

How Long Will The Pain Of Her Loss Last?

My heart longs for the warmth of her being.

My body reaches out to touch and embrace her, wanting to feel the calmness she always gave me.

My soul wants to be in her physical presence.  The presence that grounds me and allows me to feel strong and confident; even when weak.

My nostrils want to take in one last breath of her essence.

My mind wants to create more moments of joy with her.

Yes Today I Will Go To The Cemetery,

Where I Know She Is Not.

Mom’s soul is not limited to the small patch of grass next to her headstone.

Mom is in the air I breathe.

She is in the sunlight that warms me and ignites my growth.

She is the rain that falls, filled with nutrients and washing away the toxins.

She is the snow that chills me and brings a brilliant beauty by white washing this canvas called earth.

She is the sunset that screams at me to be amazed by our God and the beauty which surrounds me.

She is the moon that calls me to reflect, regenerate and give gratitude for the life I am blessed to live.

Mom, each and every day I honor you,

As you warmed my heart, taught me soul lessons, loved me unconditionally as I have taken missteps, stumbled and fallen.

To all the times you were there to pick me up and wipe me off.

Who kissed my booboo.

Give me a hug when I felt unworthy.

Who sat silently in my presence when no words were needed to make me feel safe and loved.

To your hand, when you reached out to let me know I am never alone.

To your words of encouragement when I was down.

To your thoughtful and thoughtless

celebration when I would finally got it right!

Mother you will always be so very special to me.

An “Earth Angel” guiding me while in this physical world.

Thank you to all Mother’s, for who you are and what you do for the world at large.

Thank you Mom for all you taught me.

All you gave me.

All you continue to give me from the other side.

Your continued connection through dreams and through our souls has been a beautiful gift to me.

May Each Of You Reading This Appreciate Those You Love Daily.

I thought I would add this short video, one of many, which means the world to me.  It’s of my mom singing in her end stages.

Feeling Grateful on Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving I am truly focused not only being thankful and grateful for my wonderful family and friends but all the amazing people that visit and support all of Alzheimer’s Speaks platforms. Your comments, likes and shares continue to expand our reach and help us shift dementia care from crisis to comfort around the world.

My sincere gratitude goes out to all the people I have been lucky enough to interview over the years. Each person sharing their authentic voice how dementia and/or caregiving has impacted their life. Each giving us tips and resources to help us all live graciously together.

To all the organizations who have hired me to do keynotes, training and/or consulting for staff, families, management and communities.

I pray that each of you have an amazing day that carries over for the remainder of the holiday season and into the new year.

For those missing loved ones that have passed, like I am, I hope you find a calmness knowing none of us can feel great loss without first having great love. May that knowledge bring you a peacefulness and calmness to you.

Please know you have and will always continue to matter to us here at Alzheimer’s Speaks. Sending love and blessing to each and everyone of you.
