Dear Grand-daughter,

Updated: Feb 9, 2022

This is to you my precious darling… I have been given this blessing- which is my granddaughter- I only hope I can put into words, what I feel, and have felt in my heart - since the day you came into our family, my precious child..

That day, was one of the most beautiful days of my life!

When I heard that Mummy was pregnant with you… I just ‘had’ to know whether God had blessed them with a precious prince or a princess… they didn’t want to know, but ‘I did’!! So when the nurse who did the scan secretly gave ‘me’ the envelope with the most important news, I was ecstatic!…. and that was my cue to spoil you with all I could buy for my baby girl, whom I couldn’t wait to hold in my arms, and that was only the start…

The day you were born….when I had my first glimpse of you, your little toes snd fingers…your hair framing your face…. My heart melted.. my love knew no bounds darling, you were ‘our precious little bundle’…

Then came your Christening…and in case you did not know this… your proud Nani made your christening cake too!

Then came your birthdays darling, year after year, and we watched you grow from this tiny little toddler, to a preschooler, to a preppie… to a high schooler… and now a senior… you are a quiet achiever… never make a noise about the awards you receive year after year at school, you just take it in your stride… and that is something I love about you, your nature and your humility, and the way you have grown into this loving, caring beautiful

young lady you have blossomed into…

I wish a lot of blessings on you darling, keep stepping forward- one step at a time.. there is no shortcut in life, but give of your best, do your utmost, accept the amazing opportunities that are within your reach. Don’t walk past, don’t step aside, grab them with both hands, make a difference, be heard, this is ‘your’ life sweetheart.

If I can offer you one thing, it would be the ability to see yourself through my eyes..only then will you realise how special you are to me. You are unique, so special, you are beautiful, and so wanted, no one can ever replace you, you will always be in my heart.

Through you I see what’s ahead, through me, you’ll see what is past and in the present we will love each other as long as these moments last.

“If ever there is a tomorrow

when we are not together…

there is something you must

always remember …you are

braver than you believe -

Stronger than you seem,

Smarter than you think..

and loved more than you will ever know.

Love you darling- today, tomorrow and forever…

Your nana…
