Delight Your Favorite Senior Citizen Lady With A New Hair Clip
I saw a pretty butterfly hair barrette at the mall one day and, on a whim, brought it home to my Mom. Little did I realize how much this $15 purchase would mean to both of us in the future.
My Mom was never without her beautiful hair clip from that day forward – ever. The first thing in the morning, when she was able, she’d slip it into her hair. As she weakened in the last days of her life, I continued the tradition by adding her hair clip to her hair every morning and removing it every evening.
When Mom died, I just couldn’t bring myself to add the clip one last time to her white hair. Instead, I substituted another clip similar to that first butterfly clip below and kept the original butterfly hair clip for myself. When I need a little extra strength, I slip it into my own hair. On stronger days, this much cherished remembrance of Mom resides on top of the bereavement lamp I was given after she died.
Why not delight your own elderly loved one with a hair barrette like one of those below. It doesn’t have to be a butterfly – any lovely hair barrette will do. You might be surprise how much this small gift may mean to someone later in life.

No, they’re not really made of tortoise shell so don’t worry about that. They are beautiful though, particularly in blond or white hair.
