This has been an emotional day for me today. So far my blog posts aren’t too personal but I had to write something today about an amazing lady.
I will not mention her name but she was born in 1919 and saw so many eras. She came into our family quite some year’s ago and as she had no family of her own we adopted her like a Nan. She was always proud to be part of a family and used to tell us all the time.
Just before Christmas this amazing lady died but she had such an impact on all of our lives. She influenced myself, my sister, the children of the family and of course our mum too. This was only a few people as she had many friends and uncles and aunts of mine too that grew close to her.
I remember making her this pale blue pleated shawl for her birthday one year. Her favourite colour.
She was a very educated lady and loved her garden and her cats that she owned over time. We will miss her dearly. I know she would not want us to be sad today, the day of her funeral.
So I suppose my message for today and the reason for this blog post is to appreciate all you have and the people around you.
