Muriel Emekunle Davies a.k.a Nana Kunle turns 99 years on the 12th January 2019.
Happy happy birthday to you! Special congratulations to a wonderful lady!
Nana Kunle is more than a Grandmother to me. She is an inspiration, a true role model. A lady full of wisdom accumulated over many decades.
At 99 years, she has shown that age has no limit to what you can achieve. As the year completes she has experienced the highs and lows of life while being constantly surrounded by 4 generations of family and friends.
Her best moment in 2018 (at 98 years) occurred on the 30th September 2018 when she was awarded the “Honorary Old Girl for the Annie Walsh Memorial School (AWMS)”. A school she taught
Home Economics’ for 21 years. The ceremony was well attended by many old girls inclusive of family members all dressed in white to celebrate this special occasion.
The toughest time for her this past 12 months is definitely the recent health scare in early December that led to our beloved Nana being admitted in hospital for more than a week. Thank the Lord that our prayers were heard and she was able to return home and enjoy Christmas and the New Year surrounded by loved ones. We may not be out of the woods yet so we ask that you join us in prayers to bring our beloved Nana back to her old self.
In the meantime, Nana Kunle has not finished with sharing her wisdom in the kitchen. Following the launch of “What’s Cooking? Start Cooking” in January 2018, she has released 3 new recipes that are available free on her website.
Profits made by the books purchased via the website are being enjoyed by her as soon as she receives it. She says “I have no reason to keep the money!”
Join me in prayers as we wish her God’s richest blessings for 2019. May she enjoy as many special days of immense joy, incredible wonder and great health as she brings to those around her (in other words, many more days).
We vote for 12th January 2020 to be a national holiday called “World’s Most Amazing Grandma Day,” so everyone — not just her friends and family — can celebrate how amazing she is!
Please leave your birthday wishes in the comments below so I can print and send to her later.
Love from The Nelsons (Tk, Rotimi & Tatyanna)
