Happy Birthday

Today is the day to celebrate the person who is my aunt.
019 SunriseSitting down and writing a piece for her birthday I am struggling to find the right words that could explain exactly what she means to me.
In the reel of my first memories there are always frames that contain my aunt.
There are Saturday shopping adventures, rides to school, advice and lessons that have been proven invaluable. Remember the master card adverts? Well these memories are of the “priceless” variety.

She has an amazing presence. I know those gene’s run through my children’s veins and are straight from my Grandparents gene pool. They have this charisma, sweetness, kindness… there is something in their eyes that makes everyone love them.
It’s a special quality that very few people possess.

I have been blessed to have her in my life; my children have certainly witnessed this blessing too.
019 ScottburghOn your birthday I wish you double the blessing you’ve given to us.
I hope your special day is filled with beautiful memories.

Remember that we are thinking of you and keeping our once-in-a-lifetime moments with you in our hearts. Some people are lucky to have met you, we are lucky to have gotten to know you.


  1. Happy birthday Shirl! Its just like Dianne said, you are a gift to all the family. I am sad that we are so far away from each other, and that my kids have not had the privilege of getting to know you. Hope your day was great and that you have a super awesome and healthy year ahead. Love you Shirl,from Vardi

  2. What a marvellous tribute to your Aunt who sounds like a true gem! As you say, how very fortunate you've all been to have her in your lives!
