I truly feel that my mother led me here, to Morzaine, and to my future as happy wife and businesswoman. When Mum 21 in October 2007, I was cook. In December that year，while I was working for a wedding，a pearl necklace Mum had left me 22 . I was distraught（忧心如焚的）.Some days later, I was 23 that a guy who was working with us that day.“could probably have made a fortune 24 the necklace he found.” 25 ，he returned it. Hearing he I’d 26 Mum for six months before her death, he said，“Christmas is going to be 27 —why not go out to the Alps for a couple of weeks.
I come to Morzaine, a small, friendly village in the Alps and 28 fell in love with it. What was 29 to be a stopgap (权宜之计) trip turned into a new life. I kept traveling between London and here and felt 30 than I had in months. In December 2008, I was 31 as a hotel manager and moved here full time.
A month later, I met Paul, who was traveling here. We fell in love. In the beginning, I didn’t want to discuss 32 ，because the sadness of losing Mum __33__ felt great. Paul understood that and never 34 me. But, by summer,we got married. A year later, we used his saving, and the money from the sale of Mom’s house, to build our own 35 .
We want to give our guests a 36 feel, so each room is themed (以……为题) around memories from our lives. There are also styles to remind me of Mom—a tiny chair which 37 be in her bedroom is set in one room.
We are having a wonderful life Mum 38 naturally part of it, 39 there’s no way we would be here. If it wasn’t for the 40 she gave me. I know she’s here in spirit, keeping an eye on us.
