About Wilma Neels

I was born and still live in the beautiful city called Cape Town in South Africa. My view  in the morning includes the magnificent and stunning Table Mountain (Now one of the 7 wonders of the World).


My birthday is on 25 December every year and I self published my poetry book called "Whispers from my Soul" in April 2012.



Writing is just a hobby for me and if someone walks away and are able to identify with what has been said then I am a happy person.


"HaPpY 21St BiRtHdAy NiKkO!!!!"

Blog Posted:2/27/2012 11:22:00 AM

Okay so it is not her 21st BIRTHDAY 

but with Nikko you never know :D  

Just crazy me taking the opportunity to wish an amazing YOUNG LADY,

Happy Birthday on Tuesday, 28 February her time!!!

Still got 4 hours to go before it is 28 February on my side of the world!! Even more hours to go for the most of  you guys here on the Soup.  So I figured now is the best time to do this blog!!

You are a light to many even when you don't realize it and I hope that today you will take time out to celebrate you and the blessings God has bestowed on you..  Embrace every minute!!

Hopefully you will not have the urge to strangle me via email for doing this blog ;)

Love and hugs to you Missy!!  God bless you always!!!

Veels Geluk liewe maatjie omdat jy verjaar, Mag die Here jou seen en nog baie jare spaar :-)

Ps: Happy Birthday to your sister too ;-)
