FIVE DAY COUNTDOWN TO 2018: Letters to my loved ones

Dear Nan,

You held my hand the day I was born, and you have been by my side, holding my hand, everyday since. You're one of the most important people in my life and in every life you've ever been present in. When I look back on every struggle I have had to face in my life, you're the one who has helped me through every single one. This year has been the hardest year of my life to date, and I couldn't have gone through everyday without you. I'm sorry that I sometimes snap at you or try to push you away. I should tell you this everyday but I love you with all my heart, and I don't know what I would ever do without you.

p.s. I know I'm your favourite granddaughter.

Dear K,

You have been my stepdad for 15 years and we haven't exactly always seen eye to eye. I don't agree with your views on the world, I don't like that you think you know everything, and I don't like how big-headed you are. But you're still one of the most incredible men I have had the pleasure of knowing. This year has been financially awful for me, and you were the first to help every time. I don't know where I would be right now if it weren't for you bailing me out without a second thought. Although 2017 has been dreadful for me, there is one good thing that came out of it - our bond has never been stronger. And I hope that it will forever stay that way because you're very important to me. You love me like I am your own, and although I don't say it, I promise you that the love is reciprocated.

Dear L, E, R and A,

It has never felt like I was an only child because I had you four girls. You make me laugh, you pick me up when I'm down, you support me, you protect me and you love me know matter what. I can tell you anything without worrying about being judged. I am the luckiest girl in the world to have four loving, hilarious, weird, crazy sisters like you. Some of my favourite memories are days and nights spent with you. All four of you make my life brighter and happier.

p.s. I love you

Dear JP,

I don't think many people can say that their uncle is one of their best friends. But that's because you're a one off in this world. I think I can speak for the girls as well when I say that you're the person that comes to mind when we need someone to talk to or we need to laugh and smile. I can talk to you about absolutely anything, from politics to periods. You act as our protective uncle and our trusty girl friend. My dad isn't the only reason I choose to stay at your house You have the ability to turn our worst days into a laughing fit with one sentence. You go above and beyond for your family. You're the glue that holds us all together, and for that we all love you with every inch of our heart. Thank you for being my confidant, my ray of sunshine and my rock.

I have an unbelievably large family so I can't write a letter to them all, but the above people have helped me more than they will ever know.
