Today I sat here looking around and realised I am a very lucky woman. My grandfather passed away in 2010 and I miss him dearly. I often think about how I wish he got to meet Little Brother. He got to meet Big Brother though and I am thankful for that.
I sat here today surrounded by family and my last living grandparent, my Nana. I am a very lucky woman to have her still around. She is almost 80 but you wouldn’t know it. You can catch her in the summer riding around on a motorcycle and she is looking forward to bringing my kids tobogganing soon.
I try to teach my children about being grateful for things in life and that Christmas is not just about the presents. Today I got reminded of that myself seeing my Nana as a part of our Christmas celebrations. She was not in our life for many years and I am so happy she is back in our lives now and making many memories with my boys. Not everyone is lucky to still have grandparents around when they have children of their own.
From our family to yours, Merry Christmas.
