Meet Edna, she turns 90 tomorrow and is my amazing wonderful Aunt and God Mother. She is a woman who is wise, compassionate, generous loving soul who has opened her heart and house to many people in need.
Edna opened her house and heart to me when I was in need. I was separated from my first husband, she took me in and allowed me to live with her and heal. For that I am extremely grateful.
She has taught me many things, live in the moment, do not worry, enjoy life and reward yourself because you have worked hard for it. Eat well and drink champagne no matter what the time of day, because it’s good for you.
She is an amazing master porcelain artist and still paints to this day. She has shown me creativity at its best. Here is some of her beautiful work that I have around my home.
Over the years we have spent some great times together. We go to the movies, shows, have great chats about politics and religion. I take her Christmas shopping every year and we now shop monthly for her heavy things. Although she has 2 bionic knees she still gets around quite well.
She has demonstrated that love, an open heart and forgiveness can create a wonderful life. She has had her ups and downs in life as we all do, she is a survivor of cancer and her husband passed away over 25 years ago.
Edna is a role model, open minded, caring and loving and I hope I am half the woman she is. Much love to you Aunty Ed.
