Dear daughter,

When God made a nana, a woman rooted in faith, love, and tenderness was created. 

So pause, sweet girl, to embrace her love and take it all in.

Pause, knowing a nana is unconditional love and endless kisses, filled with hope.

A nana fulfills dreams and grants wishes by simply knowing.

A nana is a keeper of secrets, and an outstretched hand to hold even on the hardest of days. 

So pause, sweet girl, to embrace her love and take it all in.

A nana is a smile while playing on the floor as a toddler and a phone call away as a teen to share frustrations about life.

A nana is a lover of all that is good, and a woman with a strong desire to make the world better.

A nana is forever a teacher of kindness and an emblem of sacrifice.

So pause, sweet girl, to embrace her love and take it all in.

A nana is a beautiful bundled gift, a gift not to be taken for granted.

A nana is a reflection of ancestors cultivating a path while embracing the lessons of today.

A nana embraces the extraordinary while forgiving the unimaginable.

A nana fuels the soul with laughter and wipes away the many tears of childhood.

So pause, sweet girl, to embrace her love and take it all in.

A nana is love.

Love . . . in its simplest form…

Love . . . to its fullest capacity…

Love . . . forever an imprint on your heart.

So pause, sweet girl, to embrace her love and take it all in.

There is nothing greater than the love of a nana.

Sweet girl, you are blessed abundantly, today and always.
