Wishing my beautiful Nana a very Happy 75th Birthday!
Thank you for being a truly extraordinary woman, my greatest role model and inspiration. You have always been my rock and have loved me unconditionally since the moment I was born, giving me so many wonderful gifts; the greatest being your time.
I always felt like you had all the time in the world for me when the reality was you were incredibly busy running a 12 acre farm, feeding horses, watering plants, collecting eggs, baking, sewing and caring for your family including eleven grandchildren. Thoughtful, kind, hard working with a ready smile for everyone you meet, guests have always been welcome in your home and at your beautifully set table. You’ve always included people who didn’t have anywhere else to go, especially at Christmas. You have the almost magical ability to turn a meal for four into a meal for ten when unexpected friends and family have turned up.
Whenever I have challenging parenting moments, I always think of you – almost single handedly raising three girls from the tender age of 18 with Pop being away for months at a time. Moving every two years and living in so many different places far away from family and friends.
You are one of life’s unsung heroes. A truly remarkable woman. You’ve set the benchmark so incredibly high for being an exceptional wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Only every giving to your family and never expecting anything in return.
I hope you had a day that is as special, beautiful and remarkable as you are.
I love you so very much, you mean the world to me.
