This week's grateful... generations!

December 5, 2010

 Four generations of crazy!


 I reckon I'm incredibly lucky... I've still got my Mum AND my Nan.  And that girl of mine, I could write 28 posts just on her alone.  She's now the age I was when I had her, and the age Mum was when she had me, so in some ways, this photo is a 21 year forecast of our lives.  

And as I'm getting older, I can see more and more of my Mum in myself, both in appearance, mannerisms, likes and dislikes.  Mum has built 2 houses, including their current home about 24 years ago, which she physically built from the ground up.  I'm completely in awe of this amazing woman - probably don't tell her that often enough though!

My Nan, who has recently had her 85th birthday, is still a ripper.  She lives independently, still gets out in her garden, goes to aqua exercise classes every few days, and still is mad for her beloved Collingwood.  She would have loved to have built a house, but never had the opportunity, so this one's for you Nan!

So... to the women responsible for making me the determined, resourceful individual that I am, I will forever be grateful.

This post is part of maxabella's "blog hop", and I quite enjoy reading about what others are grateful for.  Puts a :) on my dial it does!

Thanks for reading,
