How blessed we are

GG and lisi, joan hill

My husband’s beautiful,wise, kind, funny Grandma is 94 this week. Lovely Joan Hill how very blessed I have been to gain you in my life. My own grandmothers passed away in my teens  and my beloved mum a few years ago.

You have been their for me, a steady source of love and support. I feel your strong arms have held me tight when I have needed an older to hold me and you have listened and guided me with love as if I were your own.

Joan had a boy who had boys, her grandsons too had boys with one exception. Little Lise and her GG (great grandma) have a beautiful bond.

How blessed we are to have you GG.

Happy birthday love x

    A beautiful photo. I have great stories of my childhood with my Nan, and I am so glad my daughter is close to her Nanny.
