A very special Shout out!

My grandmother is quite a remarkable woman, and to celebrate 80 years of a majestic life, her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren will be giving her exactly what she wants for her birthday…..

we will all be under one roof for an entire weekend to celebrate her… So be prepared for loads of photo’s after this weekend 🙂

But for today, I would like to say
Happy 80th Birthday to the most phenomenal woman alive! You mean nothing but the world to me. To my children. To my Family

I wrote this poem especially for my beautiful gran (affectionately know as Ama)

As a baby in your arms…

You cradled me, bathed me, fed me and changed me too

Growing up with you by my side…

You cared for me, loved me yet wacked me at times

Through the years you watched me grow…

You guided me, moulded me and taught me to cook

Now that I am all grown up…

You love me still, like the little baby cradled in your arm, you shower my family with unconditional love like the mother you are

Our home takes a very special warmth whenever you’re around

Thank you for being there from the start

You are everything to me; I admire you, respect you and love you forever
