Hi there, My name is Nelia from South Africa. The blog is about making the most of family life, even when you do not see your loved ones as often as you like. With this blog I would love to:
- share stories of family times, pictures, poems or whatever comes to mind.
- I would also like to share my ideas and would like to hear your stories on how to celebrate the big moments and how to be a significant other, even when you are not present.
I am happily married (yeah, most of the time), I have two married children and three beautiful grandchildren. One households in South Africa, (6 hours by car) and one in the UK (14 hours by aeroplane)
“Ouma, I like visiting you”
“You only live once, and if you do it right, once is enough” This is easier said than done. What is right for me, may not be right for you. What I have discovered in my work as a “facilitator of transformation” working with diverse groups of people, is the following, and I believe this is true for everybody. THE GREATEST GIFT YOU CAN GIVE A PERSON IS TO ALLOW HIM (HER) TO BE THEMSELVES. Give them space to be and grow. But be there, make them feel that they belong.
