A list

This afternoon, Phill's nana passed away.  Nana Woller (Georgie) was a kind, loving, caring, funny, feisty, strong lady who bravely fought cancer for 5 years.  She was everyone's nana and delighted in being called 'Nana G' by neighbourhood kids and adults alike.  Nana Woller exuded a loving (tough-love, mind you) vibe and you couldn't help but to feel all sorts of warm fuzzies when you were around her (if you weren't on the receiving end of a sharp tongue!  But if you were, you probably fully deserved it.)

Phillip would have deserved it.

Dad, Nana Woller and Grandad Couper are all very much loved and missed.

So in honour of Nana Woller, Dad and Grandad, I have compiled today's list of simple things to be grateful for:
  1. Love
  2. Family
  3. Friends
  4. Sunshine
  5. A bright blue sky with fluffy white marshmallow clouds
  6. Good health
  7. Feeling safe enough to cry around your workmates and not being judged for it
  8. People knowing when to leave you alone
  9. People knowing when to give you a hug
  10. Chocolate
  11. A good up of tea
  12. Laughing
  13. Clean air
  14. Memories of great times
  15. Feijoa chutney
  16. You
Rest well, Nana... you'll be in excellent company.

What a lovely way to remember Nana G.

Sending you a hug. I know that times must be bittersweet right now.

I can't believe how much Phil's dad looks like her. They have the same eyes when they smile!

Give my love to Phil and his family.
