A Sweet Letter to my Aunt! March 1, 2019 – Posted in: Uncategorized – Tags: , , , ,

Dear Aunt,

I would first and foremost like to thank you for always being there for me. Whenever I have a challenge, you are the first person that I run to. You always know what to say when I am in a dilemma. What else can one ask from an Aunt? Every time I am with you, I feel at home.

I remember growing up with you because mum was always at work. She would ask you to take care of me while she went out and you never once said no. You would take me with you wherever you were going just so I would not be lonely at home. It was no big task for you to take care of me in the hospital. I remember the time I broke my leg while skating. You rushed me to the hospital before even calling mother. You made sure I got the best treatment and even offered to stay up all night with me while I moaned about the pain. From then on I knew that you were special, a gift sent to me from heaven.

That time I was left out of a party because I was not ‘cool enough’, you took the offence personally and went to confront our neighbour for what she did. Though I was still not allowed into the party, you made such an impression in my eyes. You were my superhero, no one could hurt me while you were around. You went ahead to throw me the birthday party of the year. My friends were green with envy. And the music was so cool, though I did not know half of the people who celebrated with me. Thanks, Aunt, we made a name for ourselves that day.

I am the luckiest girl to have an aunt who would treat her like a daughter. Your advice was invaluable. I got my first job because you vouched for me. You went as far as asking for good pay for me. You never asked for a dime from me even when you were struggling. As I gift you this world best aunt bracelet, it’s my way of saying ‘thank you’. I treasure you aunt, you are one in a million.  I hope you will remember the good times we spent together when you look at it. And though I am far from you, you are always close to my heart.

Love you loads,

Your sweet niece
