As promised yesterday, I am going to tell you about another huge event that happened since I last posted (since the time before yesterday, which was 2 years ago!) And just so you know, this is typically me – either full on, or totally off. I haven’t posted for 2 years, now I want to post twice a day…
I had the privilege of raising 3 children. Three very amazing human beings, I must add (as most parents probably think about their children). And they left home for varsity, and then one by one they started working, and going about their lives.
Then, of course, as life goes, one by one, they met someone and fell in love. My daughter got married and in the same year, she and her husband moved to Canada – big tears…
But, people, then…then after many years (or that’s what it felt like to me), they decided to start a family, and last year January, I became a grandmother for the first time!!! Oh, the joy….
I am now a proud, doting grandmother, and I will not apologize for it! My little granddaughter is the light of my life, and she brings me so much joy. From a distance, of course, since she is in Canada, and I am in South Africa.
The distance is a sore point, I can not lie about it. I am so pleased that my children have grown up to be independent human beings, because that is how I tried to raise them. But if I could have a say, if I had a choice, I would prefer to have them closer. I would like to see my little angel more than twice in 18 months. I would love to be part of her life, and form some kind of bond with her.
The fact remains – I am a granny, I am chuffed to bits about it, and I adore my little granddaughter, and it is one of the best things that ever happened in my life.
