Nanna


1st May 1996 was when I lost my Nan.

She was the most loving, caring, beautiful soul I've ever known and I miss her every day of my life, but especially so now I'm sober and able to carry on the legacy she handed down to me.

My children were 2 years and 3 months old when she slipped away after a long harrowing illness. She never complained once even when she was in pain, even when she knew she wouldn't spend the time she desperately wanted with my children. She held my baby girl and told me to love her and protect her with my life.

Well Nanna, I lost my way a bit, I wasn't always there for my kids as I should have been. The drink and depression took me away from them and I shut down for a while. That beautiful baby girl is now 17. You would be so proud of her, and she has many of your qualities. I've talked to them about you, your smiling face shines out from a photo on our bookshelf, we light a candle for you at Christmas and on your birthday. You are still with me, I can feel you, I talk to you.

I will always love you
Xxx

Hi Jeni
You may have lost your way for a while. But finding your way again is what matters.
I have no doubt that with your Nan's guidance you are and always will be just as loving and caring as she was. And just by reading this post it's easy to tell you have just as beautiful a soul.

I'm so glad you can still connect with your Nan spiritually.

Take good care.

19 years ago today. I hope you and Gramps are keeping on eye on Dad for me up there. He never did cope very well without Mum.

You would be so proud of how Mum is coping Nan.

I know we will all be together again one day. I love you as much today as I always have done, dear Nanna, and your name is spoken often.

Love always xxx

Big hugs and lots of love Jeni. I think about my grandparents often, one of my granddad's in particular, even though it was over 20 years ago for me too. For as long as we talk about them, they are never forgotten. I'm sure you have a mountain of happy memories, try and focus on them today. ❤️ Xx
