Family and friends met together to support this wonderful family as they celebrated at Exminster Golf Centre for Poppy Mai’s Naming Day. We began by Lauren and Adrian lighting a candle for their daughter which they will keep and light on her birthday every year.
As her Parents, Grandparents and 6 Godparents came forward to make their promises to Poppy, they placed a pink rose into the vase on the table along with all of their hopes, best wishes and love for her.
After their promises they took a packet of poppy seeds to plant so that year after year the poppies will remind them all of their love for Poppy.
I asked all the guests:
Do you welcome Poppy into your lives and promise to support and encourage her in all she does? and they replied – Yes we do
Poppy’ brothers Jayden and Kai read this beautiful poem to her
Poem: Our Smiling Little Sister
You are the little girl who smiles at me
The little girl who longs to see
Where all my toys are hidden away
You need them now it’s time to play.
The little girl who always smiles
The little girl who crawls for miles
You’re into things you shouldn’t be
Oh why can’t you sit quietly?
The little girl who chatters away
The little girl who has lots to say
I give you my promise that I’ll always care
As your big brothers and sister we’ll always be there
A beautiful day for such a beautiful little girl. To Poppy- health, happiness and long life.
