Today my dears, is my mum's fifty-fifth birthday. She has been in London with my little sister for the past few days.
|My Mum and Uncle|
My mother has been a blessing in so many lives.
My mother's story starts when my Grandad married his sweetheart, my Nana in 1954. They travelled around Europe in a motorcycle and side car for their honeymoon.
They made home in an English country village, and welcomed my uncle in 1957. Then, my Grandad who was a highly skilled detonator was offered a position in either Canada or South Africa. They chose the latter.
They made a new home in South Africa, and welcomed my mother in 1961. Then moved to Rhodesia where my mum attended private boarding schools. After school, my mom went on to work in finance for over eighteen years.
My mother met my dad when she was fourteen, and he was seventeen through mutual friends. They were friends for ten years when my dad married his sweetheart, my mum. They welcomed me in 1986, and my sister in 1990.
In 1994, my mother who was concerned for our safety after several robberies on our twenty-two acre farm in the middle of nowhere and political unrest, moved us girls to an English country village. She created an idyllic childhood. My mom went on to work in healthcare and create a home sweet home for the last twenty-two years.
Her parents passed in 2009, and my dad in 2013. Since then we have formed a new family, my mum, sister, hubby and me. We've been praying for baby blessings, which would make our family complete.
Wishing you a Happy Birthday Mum.
