I have always thought myself to be extremely lucky in having ready-made children! I never really wanted my own, as I was far too dedicated on giving myself loving attention AND keeping my eye open for my soulmate or knight in shining armour. Tom and I eventually found each other and together with his two children we lived our dreams come true life!
Together our families grew bigger with each other and we have enjoyed a great family life… celebrating life at each turn. Don’t get me wrong… we’ve all had our moments, but Tom and I have always worked on being honest and communicative as a family!
I have to mention how special it remains for the mother of our children, Ingrid, to be our best maatje. From the very beginning the three of us have dedicated our love to our family, knowing that children thrive in joyful and loving Environments, and none of us wanted to waste precious time being anything but loving towards each other.
None of us like religious & spiritual bulls–t nor unnecessary words about obedience and duty forced upon us… but we do love the commitment and celebration of family that marriage can bring. Not to forget the financial rewards too. Thankyou.
So you can imagine our delight when our son Richard decided to take the plunge and marry his love, Zobaida this last December. Dedicating his love, not only to himself and Zobaida, but to his son Alexander too.
We are all so grateful and excited to expand our family again. Of course Alexander’s mother is part of all this too. AND from our personal experience we will continue to encourage inclusion and focus on loving each other, knowing there is a time for everything and everyone… after all we are all unique and magnificent beings, here to love and celebrate life together!
Our son was getting married… and Ingrid and I never hesitated a moment to begin organising creative gifts to give from the heart… for them to remember this very special time, family and how welcome our new daughter is in our family. My friend Irene, from design 2011 created a beautiful jewellery set to give the bride… and groom something old, something new, something borrowed & something blue! Thankyou Irene.
As a family we created many gifts from our heart: a canvas of intuitive art… a portion of our precious chinaware, passed down from our own families and a poem channelled from the heart… all for them to embrace in their new home & life.
We have just returned home to Spain finding ourselves resting and reminiscing over our most magical adventure in Aruba. Sharing precious moments with our ever expanding family, celebrating birthdays, christmas, business and a wedding together, absorbing the love from our grandson Alexander and just loving the warmth of the Aruban sun. It’s such a beautiful, friendly and exciting Caribbean island to enjoy a winter vacation together. Thankyou Richard & Zobaida for making it all possible.
We took many photo’s to remember our magical time together. Do hope this inspires YOU to celebrate your own family… in all circumstances.
